Franklin and Chop are back, and much older!

December 14, 2021

GTA Online is set to receive a massive content update this week, which will see fan favourites Franklin, Lamar, and Chop return in ‘The Contract’. With fans eager to see what the GTA V protagonist has been up to since 2013, we’ve put together the official release date and time for the big update.

The Contract also features American Rapper, Dr. Dre, who previously made an appearance in The Cayo Perico Heist back in 2020. But it looks like the artist will be a much more prominent figure in the upcoming GTA Online update, as Franklin and Lamar are tasked with the job of finding Dr. Dre’s stolen phone.
