Rockstar Games revealed the first details regarding the 1.05 patch, as well as explaining the stimulus package release date delay, for “GTA 5” on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. According to a statement posted from the Rockstar Newswire website on Oct. 25, the company disclosed that a new title update will have to be released before the cash can be distributed to players.
The Rockstar North development team admitted that they are still trying to resolve the lost progression issues with the “Grand Theft Auto Online.” As a result, the first of two stimulus packages had to be pushed back. The compensation should be coming out after the 1.05 patch is released sometime next week. You can take a look at the statement from Rockstar Newswire below:
We know many of you are anxiously waiting for us to show you the GTA$ Stimulus Package money we announced a couple weeks back. As mentioned in that post, we of course want to ensure that game progress loss issues are sufficiently sorted before distributing the GTA$ to everyone. We have a few more tweaks and fixes to make in a new title update that will hit sometime next week and then we will distribute the cash.
Rockstar Games originally promised to release first stimulus package this week. Players would have gotten $250,000 of in-game cash deposited to their virtual bank account in the “Grand Theft Auto Online” mode of “GTA 5.” Even with the last two patch updates (which fixed the missing character and vehicles glitches), it appears that Rockstar North still did not completely resolve the lost progression problems.
Players should be getting a total bonus of $500,000 from the stimulus packages as compensation due to the launch issues of “Grand Theft Auto Online.” You can find a set of “GTA 5” screenshots in the slideshow near the top of this article.
