Rockstar Games announced
that its planned "stimulus package" update for the Grand Theft Auto Online portion of Grand Theft Auto 5
will launch "early next week" for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
As part GTAO's stimulus package, players will receive a half-million GTA$
via two in-game deposits, the first of which will arrive when title update 1.05 hits next week. The update will be followed by the release of the Beach Bum Pack
in November, along with a set of Content Creator tools.
Next week's update was previously delayed
as Rockstar sorted out bugs related to the saving of player progress, which arose as a widespread problem
following GTA Online's launch in October.
