Rockstar Games will be giving away free in-game money to GTA Online players, and here’s how you can get a slice of that action.

Like the real world, money is very important to have in GTA Online as you’ll need it to grow your empire, whether that’s through buy new cars or owning the most expensive apartment in the game.


The amount given away by Rockstar is actually $2 million, but you would have had to logged into GTA Online between January 30 and February 5 for the first giveaway. While that ship has sailed, players still have an opportunity to earn another bundle of cash.

How to get $1 million for free in GTA Online

GTA Online just had its biggest month yet and it’s celebrating with free money.

For players to get their hands on some free money, all they have to do is log into GTA Online between February 6 and February 13. Once this is done, players will have the money deposited into their account within 72 hours.


It’s an excellent incentive for players to return to the game after a long hiatus. Grand Theft Auto still receives frequent updates, with the final patch of 2019 being the largest one yet. In fact, the reason behind these giveaways is because GTA Online just had its largest month ever in terms of player numbers, over the Christmas period.

The next major update will include new vehicles.

That’s no small feat for a game that launched all the way back in 2013 for last-gen consoles. With GTA 6 nowhere on the horizon, but rumored to exist, it appears Rockstar will continue to support the game.

For the fans out there who enjoy both GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption 2, you can actually claim some rewards in the wild west too.

Rockstar Games rewarded players after GTA Online recorded more players playing the game in December 2019 than ever before.

Players who log into Red Dead Online between now and February 10 will be able to get some free gear, so make sure you do that if you own the game.

The future is equally as bright for each title, but RDR2 might end up having a long lifespan at this point as we’re probably still years out from a sequel for that.


Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.


It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
