Earlier on this week we told you that Rockstar had closed down the GTA V Online servers, in a surprise bout of maintenance that lasted over 15 hours. Now, we can confirm that GTA V Online is playable again, but it looks like the GTA V unlimited money that you have been living off for the last few weeks has all but disappeared.
We knew that Rockstar were planning to take action after shutting the online mode down completely and now we know what it is. The developer has finally taken action against those using GTA V DNS servers and those who have hosted GTA V money lobbies.
If you have been given money in GTA V online without asking for it, you should be logging into your game today and find out that Rockstar has now removed this money. Any items, property or vehicles that you have bought using the dirty money though, should still be with your account.
While most of you will be happy to part with this money, we’ve been getting a lot of feedback from you telling us that Rockstar has also been removing money that you earned yourself – thus making a lot of players unhappy again at the moment.
For those that have been exposed as a ‘hacker or exploiter’, Rockstar has warned that these players will be dealt with via ‘in-game punishments’ or in the worst case, players could also receive permanent bans from GTA V Online altogether.
You can read through the whole thing from Rockstar’s statement here. Let us know if Rockstar has removed money from your account over the last few hours.
Did you earn this money legitimately, or was it handed to you by other means?
