Grand Theft Auto V Stimulus Package And Update Coming Next Week

by Kyle Hilliard on Nov 01, 2013 at 05:11 AM

The next title update for Grand Theft Auto V and the monetary stimulus package for online players should be arriving next week.

A recent update on Rockstar's website confirmed the time frame for the update, which should fix player progression errors and deposit a large amount of money in players' banks.

Currently, we expect the next title update (1.05) addressing player progress loss issues to be available sometime early next week. Following that, we hope to deliver everyone’s GTA$ Stimulus Package before the end of next week. A big thank you to GTA Online players worldwide for your continued patience and understanding and we will continue to keep you all updated.

To be eligible for the stimulus package, which will give players $500,000 over the course of two $250,000 deposits, players needed to update to Grand Theft Auto V version 1.04 and play online at some point in October.

After all of this update and stimulus rigmarole is taken care of, more updates are planned for Grand Theft Auto V later this month, including new vehicles and weapons and a content creator.

Our Take
Despite all the headaches Grand Theft Auto Online players have encountered, Rockstar has done a great job offering plentiful updates, and compensation for the myriad issues. Even when we haven't been able to play, we've had a pretty good understanding of why, and when we should be able to next.
