Grand Theft Auto Online players get $500k of free in-game currency

Rockstar is set to give each Grand Theft Auto Online player $500,000 of in-game currency as compensation for its server issues.

The deposits will be made in two payments, each of $250,000, and only applies to GTA Online players who have played the game during October.

The developer said it hoped separate payments would help keep in in-game economy balanced.

No specific date for the scheme has been set, but Rockstar hopes to start the compensation packages by the end of the month.
