GTA Online cash stimulus coming next week, says Rockstar

  • Posted November 1st, 2013 at 16:58 EDT by Kyle Prahl

Rockstar Games has been promising a $500,000 in-game cash deposit for all GTA Online players for a couple weeks now, but a series of technical issues and update plans have put off the stimulus--until now.

In an update to a Newswire post about upcoming DLC plans, Rockstar has announced that the stimulus package will be dropping "before the end of next week"--presumably, then, no later than November 8 or 9. "Currently, we expect the next title update (1.05) addressing player progress loss issues to be available sometime early next week," the company said. "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."

For now, however, the opportunity for players to make serious bank on the stimulus is limited, as the player-driven stock market, BAWSAQ, has been offline since the launch of Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer suite on October 1. Apartments, cars, weapons, modifications, and luxury items are all up for grabs, but I was personally hoping to invest at least the first of two $250,000 drops. Oh well.

Excited for the GTA Online cash stimulus to drop? What are you going to buy first?
