It's 2020 and six years after releasing GTA 5, love is still very much in the air.
Fans might be clamouring to see what's coming next with the hotly anticipated GTA 6, but for the time being, we've already got eyes on the games next event.
In time honoured tradition, that should be the February Valentines event. Sometimes known as 'Valentine's Day Massacre' and occasionally as the 'Be My Valentine Event'.
Whatever you call the event, it should arrive alongside a slew of loved up gaming events together with fellow games like Destiny 2, Overwatch or Pokémon Go.
Despite the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4, Xbox One and PC, GTA Online continues to grow from strength to strength, so we see no reason why the game won't return with another loved up string of bonuses.
Here's what you need to know about the 2020 Valentines event ahead of time.

GTA Online Valentines 2020 – Start Date
Looking back at past years, a pretty reliable pattern forms about when you can expect to see the seasonal event start up in GTA Online.
There have now been a massive five valentines based events for GTA Online in previous years, with all announcements falling in or around the same time each February.
Here's the run-down:
- February 13, 2014
- February 10, 2016
- February 14, 2017
- February 13, 2018
- February 14, 2019
The only exception was 2015. However, we'll go out on a limb and suggest that the launch of Online heists in early March was perhaps dominating Rockstar's time instead.
Either way, since 2016 Rockstar hasn't failed to have some sort of Valentines themed event in the game.
By this logic, we can likely expect the update including the to be announced around Thursday, 13th February 2020.
Rockstar has a habit of launching updates to the game on Thursdays following the weekly reset to the game, so would suspect this is when the event and it's various bonuses will be revealed.

GTA Online Valentines 2020 – What to expect
The Valentines event in GTA Online is normally a low key affair, but there's still some good bonuses to look forward to.
So we imagine there will be double GTA$ and RP available in the fan-favorite Adversary Mode, Till Death Do Us Part.
For those of you who have't had the fortune to play this mode previously, here's how it works:
"Up to four pairs of star-crossed lovers take part in the ultimate GTA Online quadruple date: each couple has one life between them, and if one half dies, the survivor then takes their own life in dramatic fashion. Additionally, you'll get Health regeneration bonuses when you stay close to your partner, so get cozy."
If that doesn't sound like your cup of tea, we'd expect to also see various couples-only game modes
We would also imagine that the romantic holiday vehicles and weapons will also return.
So we should expect to see the Albany Roosevelt Valor and Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun to also return in some form.

GTA Online Valentines Event 2020 Bonuses
In 2019, Rockstar didn't go all out for the valentines event, but we did see some decent discounts available and we imagine these will return once again, if not with slightly better discounts.
Last year players could grab 30% off all Be My Valentine content – including the Albany Roosevelt, Albany Valor and all Valentine's Day Clothing.
PS4, Xbox and PC players were also able to pick up any weapon from Ammu-Nation at a 30% discount, get up to 40% off all Bunkers, the Mobile Operations Center and much, much more.
Here's the full run down:
