Did anyone honestly think that the release of an update as massive as GTA Online Freemode Events, containing a huge amount of content including new missions, new adversary modes and more, would provide the so called “tipsters” of the GTA community with enough stuff to do in order to shut them up for a short while?
The data miners have been picking apart the code of GTA V’s 1.29 patch ever since it launched, and have actually found something of note among the endless lines. Bound to spark endless rumors, it seems that new characters will be introduced to the game soon…
Currently, characters are labeled as FMMC_PD_???. For example, Avi Schwartzman is referred to as FMMC_PD_AVI. The tipsters have discovered several references of that format which do not correspond with any characters currently found in-game. Among the new discoveries is “FMMC_PD_FVG”, which could be a reference to a character who will be added in a future update or DLC.
This is in a similar vein to a rumor that was circulating some time ago and related to the inclusion of agent 14 in GTA V’s single-player component, who is currently on present in GTA Online. However, with recent developments suggesting we won’t ever be seeing any kind of story DLC for GTA V, it seems those rumors were just as baseless as any other.

With Rockstar already teasing new content for GTA V, it should come as no surprise that the tipsters have gotten to data mining this quickly. The 1.29 patch reworked GTA Online from the ground up, meaning a lot of programming work went into it, so the Freemode Events update is a goldmine for tipsters.
Recently, we’ve also reported on a set of unlisted features included in GTA Online’s new update, which included new and more numerous spawn points of aerial vehicles. A map detailing the locations of these new spawn points can be viewed here.
