Rockstar announced today that stimulus package payments have started going out to all Grand Theft Auto Online players who logged into the game in October 2013.

You may recall that the online version of GTA hit an unexpected hiccup early in October that caused connection issues and loss of character progress for many players. The $500,000 recompense will be delivered to players' in-game accounts through direct deposit.

Rockstar added, "We expect that it will take up to two full days for the Stimulus Package to be fully delivered to the entire player base from October 2013, so please be patient if you do not see it appearing in your in-game bank account just yet."
