A new GTA 5 Online update has been revealed for launch later this week
Unfortunately for Rockstar, some of the next GTA 5 Online update content has been revealed early, confirming that the The Duke O death is set to be made available to all players.
The source of the new information was Rockstar themselves, who apparently tweeted about the vehicle’s return, before then deleting it.
Here’s how the formerly exclusive ride is described on the gta.wikia.com page: "It is a specialised variant of the Dukes. The vehicle is exclusive to players who have already played seventh console generation versions of the game, and is not available to all eighth generation players."
"The Duke O'Death is a highly modified variant of the Dukes; as such, it is based on the 1968-1970 Dodge Charger.

"It features the same chassis and body as the normal Dukes, but comes with custom front bullbars, a roll cage, an external roll bar with lights attached, rear louvers, side exit exhausts, decreased ground clearance and protective armour plates covering the windows and windshield.
"It features a unique supercharger ram air scoop on its hood. Its paint job seems to come in matte black as default."
It also appears that new “Pastel Pajamas” are being added the game everyday until Monday, although it’s unclear if this content was also launched a little early, due to them being removed for a short time.
It’s now been confirmed by dataminers that the Duke will arrive on Tuesday this week, the usual day for GTA 5 Online updates to be released.
It’s also unclear if the new content drop will be paired with any new items, following the release of the Land Grab Adversary Mode last week.
Another has been discovered with the file name ADV_OVRT, however this was found without any guiding in-game text, making it hard to work out what it could be.

Classic cars, bonuses, stunt races and Adversary Modes have been slowly added to the game over recent weeks, and it appears Rockstar are set to make a new announcement soon on what extra spring content they have planned for release.
The Gun Running expansion is currently the last known expansion for GTA 5 Online planned for release by Rockstar.
“Stock up and bunker down as you take on the craziest militias across the state of San Andreas in another massive update for GTA Online.
“Featuring brand new weaponized vehicles and exciting new missions, get ready to fight for supremacy in the illegal arms trade and wage war with the latest in high-powered military hardware.”
And with Red Dead Redemption 2 releasing Autumn 2017, it could be that Rockstar will start winding down their online launches for GTA Online.
