Rockstar Providing Stimulus Package for GTA Online Issues

Rockstar shelling out GTA$ to those who play within the month of October

Grand Theft Auto Online launched over a week ago, and most players have run into some unfavorable technical issues. Things are beginning to look up as GTA Online now seems to be running adequately.  

Rockstar Games noticed the outrage that occurred because of  GTA Online's initial failure, and they are shelling out GTA$ to those who play within the month of October. Players will receive half a million GTA$ in their GTA Online bank account, $250,000 at a time. Money will be received in two deposits in order to keep the game's economy balanced.

This virtual money may not ease the pain of every gamer, especially those that ran into the really nasty issues, but Rockstar hopes it will make your future in Los Santos more comfortable.

Rockstar writes, "For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet."

In order to receive the compensation players must have played or play GTA Online within the month of October and install a future update. The update is expected next week, and should fix any remaining issues regarding vehicle purchase loss, and enable the GTA$ to be deposited to accounts.

Specific dates for these deposits have not been announced, but Rockstar expects to make the first deposit by the end of next week and the second deposit by the end of the month. With each deposit an announcement will be made on the Rockstar Newswire.
