GTA 5 Halloween 2019: When does Halloween Surprise start in Grand Theft Auto V?

Grand Theft Auto Online's yearly Halloween event is basically like a videogame version of The Purge: you dress up, you get together with people you trust, and you go out on a jubilant killing spree.


For the last four years, this event – known in the game as Halloween Surprise – has run like clockwork in October, but this year, since the release of Red Dead Online and RDR 2 last year, some fans are wondering if it will return.

Rest assured, Rockstar isn't done with Grand Theft Auto V just yet – there's still plenty of money to be made in the most popular game of all time, after all.

Here's what we know about the upcoming Halloween 2019 event so far.

GTA Online Halloween Surprise 2019 – Start Date

The Halloween Surprise was launched initially as a content DLC for the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto Online, but due to the overwhelming popularity of the event, it later became a recurring special event that is hosted every Halloween.

If we look at the past four years, a pattern forms about when we can expect the seasonal event to go live.

Here are the dates we've seen so far:

• ­ 2015 : 29 October – 16 November
• ­ 2016 : 28 October – 15 November
• ­ 2017 : 27 October – 6 November
• ­ 2018 : 30 October – 5 November

By the logic of the above, and knowing that Rockstar tends to update GTA V on Thursdays these days, we can expect the event to go live on actual Halloween this year: October 31st. It will likely run until November 7.
