GTA Online Users to get Compensation for Recent Troubles - A cool $500k!

Rockstar have announced that they will be giving everyone who have played GTA Online or who play Grand Theft Auto Online this month a very nice compensation package as an apology for the recent issues which have plagued GTA Online, in the form of a cool $500k deposit into your bank account! Players will receive 2 deposits of $250k each, totaling $500k. Rockstar will be depositing the cash to your GTA Online bank accounts this month, starting as early as next week.

“In order to keep the current worldwide in-game economy balanced, we will be providing this GTA$ to players via two deposits of $250,000. We will announce specific dates as soon as possible, but are currently hoping to be able to make the first deposit by the end of next week (after we’ve confirmed that issues causing game progress loss have been fixed) with the second installment to happen by the end of the month.”

Below are some details on how the progress works, and who will qualify to receive the compensation.

  • You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
  • Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
  • We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.
  • Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.

Rockstar state that they hope that the “GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet.”
