We expect to deliver everyone’s GTA$ Stimulus Package in the next few days. Stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for further updates. As ever, a big thank you to GTA Online players worldwide for your continued patience and understanding.

Thank you to everyone for joining in GTA Online throughout this first month of its release, for all of your awesome Online Snapmatic pics and Crew videos that we’ve spotted, for your patience and understanding as we’ve been working through the initial teething issues of launching an online experience like this, and for your excellent feedback to the official GTAOnline@rockstargames.com email address. Please keep it coming as it is really helping us plan for the future of the game. Here’s a quick update for all Grand Theft Auto Online players worldwide on what’s in store in the immediate future.
We know many of you are anxiously waiting for us to show you the GTA$ Stimulus Package money we announced a couple weeks back. As mentioned in that post, we of course want to ensure that game progress loss issues are sufficiently sorted before distributing the GTA$ to everyone. We have a few more tweaks and fixes to make in a new title update that will hit sometime next week and then we will distribute the cash.
Coming in early November will be the first add-on content update, the Beach Bum Pack which will bring all-new beach themed vehicles and new weaponry that you’ll be able to use in both GTA Online and Story Mode. Plus new customization options for your GTA Online character including new tats, hairstyles and more. We’ll also be adding lots of brand new action-packed Jobs to play with Gang Attacks, Survivals, Last Team Standings, Parachutes, Deathmatches and Races that will have you bloodying up the waters and coastlines of the finest beach resorts across Los Santos and Blaine County.
We are also working to bring you the debut of the first part of the GTA Online Content Creator this fall – giving players the ability to craft, publish, rate and play custom-made Deathmatch and Race Jobs. We’ll be keeping our eye open for exceptional ones that we’ll be stamping as ‘Rockstar Verified’ and will be featuring them here at the Newswire and as part of forthcoming GTA Online Social Club Events. Both the Content Creator and the Beach Bum Pack are free.
Starting in November will be the first Grand Theft Auto Online Social Club Event weekends which will bring special rewards and bonuses ranging from limited-edition in-game Event Crate Drops to in-game discount specials and even a special new GTA Online live-stream show hosted by Rockstar at the Social Club Events page and Rockstar Games Twitch page – plus prize pack giveaways of hard to find GTAV gear and more.
Stay tuned as we hope to have more information with more details and specific timings on these content updates as well as on GTA Online Heists and the new GTA Online Capture the Flag mode to share with you next week. We will also have initial details on more additional content coming for both Story Mode and GTA Online in the next few weeks.

      You should add the need for the gas stations in the game. It would be more challenging and more fun if we had to take the time and add the real life effect if we had to get gas. Everyone I talk to and play the game with want it to be. Along with heists and casino to be added and available soon

        You give us to meny limitations you need to help keep this game interesting if you keep it fresh not the same boring stuff everyone owns. ya you can make a race or a deathmatch but what about upgrades for everything something to invest in, like apparment upgrades garage upgrades more cloths more cars and stuff for them to make ppl spend there money up so they do more missions races and deathmatches and ya bring back some of the old stuff like basket ball eating food working out dancing and even add some new things. I know you dont want to do it because you make no money off it so do the things like basket ball and stuff as free updates and the house garage and new car upgrades like expansion packs everybody who truly loves playing the game will buy them I know I would. Just some ideas we all could benefit from.

            Dear Rockstar,
            I hope that you take the time to read this message and take it into consideration. In the next update I think that people should be able to play basketball on the beach, and I also think that you should add pegs on bmx bikes. People are always complaining on how their characters head has a tattoo on it and how its ugly. My guy has the same thing. Mansions would be good too so we have a bigger and better house to live in. A few more things, You guys should add more money for when you win races because it takes sooo long to accumulate money (3k per race). Adding hydraulics to GTA 5 would be the bomb too. Like I said I think you should be able to do a lot more stuff in GTA 5 like body build and make your guy bigger, play basketball to make your guy faster. One last thing with the dreads haircut, I think that your dreads should grow over time. Like if you get dreads they should grow over time. Please take this letter to heart and try to add as much stuff as you can!

              Hey, R* you guys should add more properties i'm getting tired of seeing everyone live in the 400k apt. We should be able to buy mansions or atleast multiple properties. Think of us as fish, you guys need to add heist already you guys are letting to much fish swim away , add heist if you want to keep us hooked.

                R*, can we get an option to turn off the stupid kill indicator/screen flash? It really takes me out of the game seeing the entire game world brightly strobe flash with a little x over my target every time I make a kill with a gun. It gives me a headaches and makes combat feel weak and cheap.

                  Please add Heists !

                    Hydrolics....Awesome! Best idea so far!

                    I would love it to buy a trailer in the north of the map even if it only has a 1 car garage.

                    I would like to see that we can buy 1 house/apt/trailer/mansion AND a garage.

                    I could live in the north and have a garagebox in LS

                      I never saw this posting, because I hardly ever check the news section on a basis. But, I just saw the pic of this buggy... I did the exact same respray and body work, just a different exhaust, wit never seeing the pic. Too funny. But now I have to go spend money to make mine different.

                        We should be able to do hunting missions to Rockstar! Or like something similar to Red Dead, that would be really cool. And more ways to get money :/ More clothes and hairstyles and Heists!!

                          R* its so haed to find a full session not free roam I always get into a full session on free roam.but not deathmatch a race or missions I really hope you guys fix the issue because I really like this game I thnk the reason being that no one joins missions or deathmatch and races is because everybody is a billionair if nobody had a lot of money I think it would be easier to find a session.i think you guys should wipe out everybodys bank account and just leave like 500000honestly I hope you guys do that

                                    Will we be able to buy houses and mansions? and if so will we be able to buy an extra garage to house our extra cars? Could mini games like hunting,basketball, or volleyball be added?
