GTA Online is a huge money maker for Rockstar, and now the developer has taken steps to ensure that their online component for the game does not get overrun by cheaters and hackers. To make GTA Online a hacker free space thhe developer has updated the ban policy this week that will be punishing the hackers or cheaters harshly.
Not only this RockStar has also removed all the money from Grand Theft Auto Online, which was found to be obtained through cheating or exploits.
To keep the gameplay environment fair we have removed illegitimately gained in-game money from player accounts. If you received an alert saying that your shared bank balance was adjusted, that is because you had illegitimate funds in your account.
According to Rockstar, the deletion of this tainted cash is just the beginning and the first part of the GTA Online’s terms of service overhaul. According to the developers, those who caught cheating will only be given one chance to change their ways, if caught second time the players will be permanently banned.
GTA Online suspensions are triggered by a number of factors, including modding in GTA Online, exploiting or abusing game mechanics, manipulating protected game data and code, or interfering with other players’ gameplay experience. Suspensions from GTA Online due to these reasons may be temporary suspensions or permanent bans depending on the severity of the infraction.
While the Rockstar is making sure that cheaters stay away from GTA Online, the developer is giving away cash to every player to celebrate the third anniversary for the Grand Theft Auto Online.
