Last week saw a patch roll out for Grand Theft Auto Online to fix a rather nasty bug resulting in characters not being displayed. When the bug first popped up, Rockstar acted quickly and warned users not to create new characters in the missing slots. In a followup comment posted just a few days ago, Rockstar Games has revealed that the characters lost due to the bug can not be recovered.
For those asking about their lost characters or rank, those will not be able to be restored so we sincerely hope that this cash stimulus we’re giving out this month will help you get back on your feet or to make your new life in Los Santos & Blaine extra sweet.
To compensate players for launch issues, lost characters, and lost vehicles, Rockstar is giving half a million dollars to anyone who plays GTA Online in October. The money will be doled out in two halves, with the first dropping this week and the second by the end of the month.
