GTA Online Stimulus cash payments going live now

Thursday, 7th November 2013 10:18 GMT By Dave Cook

GTA Online developer Rockstar North has begun topping up the back accounts of players following the game’s shaky start.

It follows the release of GTA Online update 1.05, which addresses several technical issues.

In a press release sent to VG247, Rockstar confirmed that the $500,000 compensation is being issued to players from today, and is being doled out in one lump sum, as seen in this tweet from CVG’s Iain Wilson:

Rockstar has stressed that while the money is going out from today, it could take a day or two to process. Everyone should have it by close of play Friday, however.

Meanwhile, the GTA Online content creator is still due for a Fall release.

    i swear there was world peace in GTA Online today. for about an hour. depending on when you got on at least. it was as if every asshole in the world went on a simultaneous shopping spree. i guess money can cure anything, in moderation.

    Good to see it finally come out. A little too late for me as I lost interest a good few weeks back. Still, good for those who suffered poor connections, although I’m not sure what the money could significantly get you this late in. Most people have apartments by now I imagine. Maybe the Adder, Cheetah or XF50? A tank?

    It would’ve been interesting to see the chaos unfold with these spending sprees.

    @Panthro it was a spammer, and has now been deleted, making it look like poor old Eon is bearing the brunt of your displeasure.
