Yesterday Rockstar Games tweeted the above message
It seems that Rockstar have finally listened to another of its usergropus. While I have noticed reports that there may be a typo in the message, where it says we can 'now play' heists with 2-4 players, the message seems to indicate that the original set of heists has been reworked somewhat to allow them to be completed in smaller groups and that this will be included with the doomsday heist update in two days time. Some people have said that the wording in this post may be slightly misleading as it could refer to the hiest setups only but I for one hope that for the sake of those who struggle to find a good team that this isn't the case.

It seems that it is one very small step in the right direction for a change from them, by offering people another now easier way to make money in-game, perhaps Rockstar will start to make it a little easier for those who struggle but want to play the game legit.

Will you be replaying the old heists in a smaller group or playing them for the first time? Maybe you have a solid group already, regardless, tell us your thoughts below!

Just to update this topic but the tweet only refers to The Doomsday Heist.

They did not change the format for the old heists, unfortunately they are still 4 player requirement, it would seem though for the new style heist format this will allow for 2-4 players and possibly bodes well for further new heist type DLC's to come in the future.

Ypu aren't the only one! I haven't been this hyped for an update since the original Heists were announced. Hopefully we aren't building for disappointment but I believe that this one is gonna be a good one.

I hope we could do the entire heist with just 2 people. *fingerscrossed*

Ah man I've always had hype for another DLC like this. Just like you I'm hoping this is not a let down!

It says do it with 2-4 people meaning you could possibly do it with only 2. :eek:

The only issue barring them all being made two player I am seeing on the interwebs is the fact that most, if not all of them require multiple separate roles or multi role teams. Rockstar can be inherently lazy in the things they push forward and to enable all old hiests to be played in two player, they would have had to reworked all of them, almost from the ground up. At the same time though, if it is anything like half of what we see already in the trailer, a hell of a lot of work already has went into this.

I agree, fingers crossed!

This would be great, especially if per-player payouts stay the same.

Agreed, I really don't see Rockstar reworking the old 4P heists/setups to make them 2 player. That won't sell Shartcards. Would be nice though, most of the setups so far really don't need 4 people, and you could simultaneously set up 2 different heists.

Of course they do. They are a business. Honestly i think Rockstar deserves mad props for the way they do business. They give us the updates for free, and leave it up to the player if they want to grind or buy shark cards. People who buy shark cards get my respect too because without them we wouldnt get so much awesome DLC. Shark cards made the game what it is today.

I hung up my Heist boots a long time ago because all of my friends decided to Brexit from GTA.

...but if this is true and one can do Pacific Standard with two people. Man, finding one more random to do it is a lot easier than finding three, and even though there's no guarantee of success, statistically, there's less chance of failure too. I'm there. Easy money with the helicopter and it'll be super quick too, even with the setups.

Why the Hell didn't they just do this to begin with?

Heists are ranging from 2-4 players. Pretty sure that is what was meant. Did anyone notice we can finally use our weaponized vehicles in setups and finales? The vigilante sure helps speed to destinations.
And for those that gave up heists. Playing heists with new people is probably the best experience I've had in gta.
Sometimes it is nice to remember back when we all sucked too. My only issue is no mic. For some reason new users never seem to have a mic. I don't care if you are 12 or 65. Just need to talk when you are having an issue. One of the funniest things I think is during prison break and everyone piles into your windsor drop top and you are the pilot. "Hey guys, there is a time limit. "
Haha. Best moment was a guy got into the back seat and I didn't notice. Drove all the way to airport when I saw him trying to get in the plane. Damn stowaways. Anyway there are multiple forums including this one that has a matches section to get other like minded users to do heists with. Hell there is even a groups section on xbox one just for this. And remember if you do heists with me I give all the money away.
For me it is very boring if the heist is completed without issue. Plus if you continue to use those people in future heists you learn where they are best suited. Like me, I can do any of the positions in heists. Especially the pilot parts. Many struggle with that one. So I am most of the time stuck with being the pilot.

I agree.. Best part I find are meeting new people and seeing what new perspectives they have found to compete heist plus giving away your earnings to people you know are trying their best. You're right we all started from nothing, I don't mind sharing what I know to someone who is just as engaged as I am or was to learn something new.

It does sound like for this new heist it's now possible to play with 2 to 4 members. I doubt the old ones will be revised as some steps definitely require 4 people.

As a lone wolf, I wish it would be possible to play any mission and heist alone, letting me either handle all the heat or provide some AI helper when a pilot/driver is needed. For that matter, whenever a player gets disconnected from a heist or sell mission team, some AI should take his place as it's just lame how it just ruins everything otherwise.
