After previously announcing they would deposit a half a million dollars in in-game currency this month to gamers after a plethora of glitches hurt the online launch of "Grand Theft Auto V," Rockstar games said on their official website today that they are going to iron out several other bugs in the game first.
Earlier this month, Rockstar announced the plan to give gamers the money in two separate deposits of $250,000, in order to make up for several crash-inducing moments during online gameplay. Two weeks later, the money has yet to be distributed and now Rockstar says there is no ETA for the in-game currency's dispersal.
Rockstar also announced that they would be making several other adjustments to the game in order to "balance the economy of the world," including cutting the payment in half for mission replays.
"Just to clarify for those who were asking about the adjustment made to mission replay payouts, please remember that we are continuing to regularly balance the dynamic in-game economy and whenever we discover that there are unintended loopholes that some players are exploiting to grind cash or RP, you can expect that we will be adjusting or closing them," Rockstar said on their official site today. "By the same token, there are also cases where we’re balancing the economy in the opposite direction such as recently reduced penalties for dying. All of this is done to keep things as fair and as fun as possible... We thank you for your understanding and patience and please stay tuned this week for more information including timing of the first GTA$ Stimulus Package deposit and the forthcoming new content such as the Beach Bum Pack, Content Creator and Heists."
