Despite promises made last week, Rockstar still haven't given Grand Theft Auto Online players their cool quarter-million, the first instalment of an in-game currency apology for the rocky launch. The reason? So you don't end up losing all of it.
Rockstar explained the situation in a NewsWire comment, suggesting that they don't want to give out the GTA$250,000 until they're convinced that the progression loss bugs have been thoroughly fixed. Otherwise, players might end up losing their characters along with the payday.
"We hope to have an update for you very soon," the missive reads. "As others have mentioned here, we of course want to make sure player progress loss issues are addressed before providing everyone with their GTA$500K. Thanks for your patience and please stay tuned.”
Repeat mission rewards were halved in the latest patch, so I daresay plenty of players are rather excited about the forthcoming cash injection (not to mention plenty of features that haven't been implemented as-yet). What will you spend it on - when and if it arrives?
