It’s been no secret that the launch of GTA Online has seen its fair share of issues. To help alleviate some of the frustration that fans may have experienced, Rockstar Games announced on Oct 11 that they will be handing out $500,000 of in-game money deposited directly into gamer’s online bank account within the multiplayer mode of Grand Theft Auto V.
The payments will be split into two separate payouts, the first of which is expected to come next week. It will be tied into the game’s next update from Rockstar Games. The reason for waiting a week is the update hopes to fix issues where players are losing property inside GTA Online. Ideally, it wouldn’t make much sense to give gamers their first deposit of $250, 000 prior to solving a problem that could cause them to lose the money. The second deposit is expected to come by the end of the month.
Grand Theft Auto V is out now on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
