Grand-Theft-Auto-OnlineRockstar have stated that the long delayed $250,000 cash payout for GTA Online players is planned to arrive sometime next week. The company announced that, due to GTA Online’s horrific launch, players will be elgible for a total of $500,000 in-game money if they have logged onto the service for the month ofOctober.

The first payout was supposed to arrive last week but Rockstar didn’t feel comfortable giving out the money until all bugs were fixed. Now it seems that the upcoming 1.05 patch will fix such issues and is due out early next week.

Currently, we expect the next title update (1.05) addressing player progress loss issues to be available sometime early next week,” an update explains. “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.”

Rockstar have also released a patch a couple of weeks ago that halves money payouts for repeat missions. This makes for a much more difficult task of obtaining money in the game, so the $250,000 deposit will be a welcomed addition for GTA Online players.
