Rockstar Games posted a new update in regards to the infinite money bans in “GTA Online” that are occurring following the 1.08 patch update. According to a message from the support website of the company on Dec. 20, a representative once again reassured that players will be safe if they were unwillingly gifted money from others who obtained the cash through illegitimate methods.
Those that are afraid of being banned “do not have to worry about being added to the cheater pool” while playing the multiplayer mode of “GTA 5.” The development team will also help them remove the money from their account. You can find the statement below:
Players who play legitimately and are gifted money do not have to worry about being added to the cheater pool. Please just submit a request to our team with the button on the top right of the page, and we can take a look into your account and remove the money.
Hackers apparently created a mod for “GTA 5,” which changed the cash payouts to massive amounts in “GTA Online.” Some of these individuals are gifting other unsuspecting players millions of in-game currency. According to the statement above, legit users won’t be punished.
Rockstar Games invested a lot of time and money trying to balance the economy in “GTA Online.” The development team also offered cash card micro-transaction DLC packs, which give players a transfer method for converting real-life money into in-game currency.
“GTA Online” was unlocked on Oct. 1 through a patch for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of “GTA 5.” The recent 1.08 title update removed the ability to duplicate vehicles although hackers have already found another way to generate and share an infinite amount of money.
