The stimulus package was previously announced two weeks ago, and was supposed to be released the following week. When that deadline passed, it was explained that the developer wanted to wait until they were sure a new title update had stabilized the now infamous connection issues players were having with the game.
Once again, Rockstar is saying that another title update will release for the game some time next week, and the stimulus package will be in players' in-game banks following that.
The stimulus package is intended to be an apology of sorts for all the trouble players had to endure when trying to play 'GTA Online' in its first few days. Players were frequently losing game progress, leading many to give up on the game altogether.
The stimulus package itself will be two deposits of $250,000 each into the players' in-game bank accounts. Players are free to spend their digital cash as they please.
Recently, Rockstar lowered the amount of in-game money that can be earned by completing missions. Presumably, this was in anticipation of the flood of money entering the game's economy with the stimulus package. With the stimulus package delayed, it has made saving up for the nicer apartments and cars in the game a bit more of a grind.
Is all of this too little too late at this point? Let us know in the comment section below.
