Grand Theft Auto Online players given $500,000

While things certainly are looking a lot better, the online portion of Grand Theft Auto V is still not fixed properly. Rockstar Games would like to thank fans for their patience in true Los Santos style: By throwing bundles of cash at you.

Anyone who has played – or will play – Grand Theft Auto Online in the month of October will receive a tidy half a million GTA$ in their bank accounts, starting as early as this coming week.

But! You won’t get all $500,000 at once. In an attempt to keep the in-game economy in balance, the money will be distributed as two deposits of GTA$250,000. This will all be handed out shortly – but Rockstar (obviously) wants to make sure the in-game disappearances have been fixed. You should have all your money “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.


  • You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
  • Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
  • We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.
  • Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.

A recent update has fixed a bunch of online issues, but fans are still reporting bugs.
