A lot of GTA V players may have been expecting their $500,00 stimulus package to arrive this week, but found themselves disappointed that it didn’t actually turn up, which is due to a delay that was added by Rockstar in order to correct a number of issues with the gameplay in GTA Online.

After more demand than they ever expected, GTA Online has found a ton of problems throughout its launch, which mostly lied with the servers not being able to cope with the sheer amount of traffic coming their way.

To apologise for this, Rockstar promised gamers that they will be gifting them two deposits of $250,000 in-game currency sometime last week, but obviously that never happened.

Rockstar have now apologised for the delay, posting the following on their GTA Online bulletin board:

“We hope to have an update for you on that very soon. 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.”

They are yet to provide an exact date for its release however.
