‘GTA Online’ Latest News & Update: Rockstar Games Confiscating Trillions of In-Game Money From Cheaters
Rockstar Games does have its own set of terms of services, particularly for “GTA Online”. With mods in play, it wouldn’t be surprising that some gamers are able to amass ill-gotten wealth that could go as high as billions.
Though there have been no serious reports on how Rockstar handles the cheats, their current campaign against cheaters should serve as a warning to the ones who have cheated their way in “GTA Online”. Not only will their accounts be banned or suspended, those stolen amounts will all go for naught.
Some “GTA Online” gamers may have started receiving alerts as we speak, something discussed in detail over at the Rockstar Support page. This can be found under “Gained In-Game Money Removal” where gamers would be receiving messages of illegitimately gained money being adjusted or removed from their banks.
Some gamers who may be playing fair on “GTA Online” may also be affected. However, if any adjustments were made, the chances are these were ill-gotten and hence adjusted. The case, however, is different from the ones who amassed it through exploiting mods, which reportedly reaches the hundreds of billions.
There are of course a lot of “GTA Online” gamers who have amassed such and when put together could reach the trillions, even more. A sample of a gamer who was caught red-handed can be found over at Reddit.
So far, there have been no reports of erroneous confiscations on the part of Rockstar. But even if there was, it is likely that they will get on it to. Seeing how enormous the number of “GTA Online” gamers are, there is a chance that there will be casualties somewhere along the line.
For the accounts that were suspended, their characters will reportedly be reset, the same with the progress, property, and inventory, Kotaku reported. First-time offenders on “GTA Online” are however warned that a second offense will result in a permanent ban.
