Rockstar has finally kicked off the much-awaited stimulus package where the company will reward those who faced issues with Grand Theft Auto Online during its troubled launch with a total of $500,000 in-game money. The first half of the money will be deposited directly into players' in-game accounts over the next couple of days, so don't worry if you haven't gotten your money just yet.

The company hopes to have completed the first deposits for everyone by Friday, and will be updating its blog to announce the same. "Thanks go out to everyone for their continued patience and understanding while we worked through these issues," said the company on its blog. "We can't wait to bring more into the world of GTA Online."

The stimulus package has seen a bunch of delays, and was originally going to hit the game with patch 1.04. The developer elaborated last week that this was because of technical issues.

The company had announced that players would start to get the money in their accounts within a week after the announcement – the yardstick being the release of the patch 1.04 for the game – but that clearly did not happened.  Whatever the case may be, it is sure that the amount of $500,000 in-game cash will be deposited into players’ accounts in two packages of $250,000 each. Obviously, the developers want to stop the in-game economy from going crazy.

Grand Theft Auto 5 was released in September to critical acclaim as well as a bunch of Guinness World records under its belt. If you want to know if the game actually deserved it, check out our review.
