Not without a reason! Rockstar Games will do this becauso of the massive server problems like save game problems or character deletion.
We will be dropping a cool half a million GTA$ in the GTA Online bank accounts of all players this month, starting as early as next week.
BUT, in order to keep the current worldwide in-game economy balanced, the player gets this money in two deposits of $250k. The moneyrain will probably starting next week after both platforms obtained the new 1.04 patch which will fix the game progress loss.
Below are a few more details on how it will work. Stay tuned for tips on how to make the most of GTA$ cash, info on ways and places to earn more cash fast, as well as updates on all the new GTA Online content additions we’re working on for this fall and beyond.
- 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.
