Rockstar announced today that as a “we’re sorry” for the online glitches that have plagued GTA V gamers since its release due to bugs, they will be giving every gamer $500,000 in GTA cash. The company has stated that in order to maintain the economy, the deposits will be made in 2 separate deposits of $250,000.
Rockstar released the requirements in order to claim the half a million “GTA Dollars”:
"*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."
