The company plans to push half a million dollars in each player’s GTA Online bank accounts beginning “as early as next week,” noted the company via a blog post.
“In order to keep the current worldwide in-game economy balanced, we will be providing this GTA$ to players via two deposits of $250,000. We will announce specific dates as soon as possible, but are currently hoping to be able to make the first deposit by the end of next week (after we’ve confirmed that issues causing game progress loss have been fixed) with the second installment to happen by the end of the month. For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet,” stated Rockstar.
Problems in GTA 5 Online were addressed earlier this week when the company released a patch. Such issues covered included disappearing characters, freeze ups during launch sessions and more.
