Those still eagerly going about stealing cars and holding up convenience stores will be happy to hear that Rockstar has revealed that the first part of the long-awaited stimulus package - a $500,000 total sum of cash to make-good for severe issues players were experiencing during the first few weeks after GTA Online's launch - will be coming next week once the game receives its fifth path.
Earlier this week Rockstar stated that it was still working on problems with players losing their character progress in GTA Online. An update to the blog post confirms that "Currently, we expect the next title update (1.05) addressing player progress loss issues to be available sometime early next week." Time to party.
The first part of the $500,000 stimulus is expected to go live after the patch next week, once Rockstar are able to confirm that the existing character progression problems have been finally fixed.
