Thanks to your dedication (i.e. the players), the unending popularity and relevance of Grand Theft Auto Online and the undeniable power of marketing, Rockstar's flagship multiplayer title is stronger than ever. With the release of some of the game's most anticipated DLCs, it has broken every population record there is to break over the holiday season.
More people are playing GTA Online now than ever before, which is an astounding feat for a game entering its 7th year. The release of The Diamond Casino & Resort brought in a massive surge of players, both new and returning. That spike in activity was only surpassed when Rockstar came back at the end of the year and let us rob the casino vault with The Diamond Casino Heist.
The biggest DLC in the history of the game managed to bring in so many people, that December 2019 has - so far - boasted the highest number of GTA Online players ever since it was released. To thank the player base for their continued dedication, Rockstar is handing out the largest GTA$ bonus ever seen.
LATEST GTA NEWS CLIPS
Anyone who logs into GTA Online between the 30th of January and the 5th of February will get a free bonus of GTA$ 1,000,000. Then, you can get another million by logging in again between the 6th of February and the 12th, bringing up the giveaway total to GTA$ 2,000,000.
Rockstar is also keen to ramp up those player numbers even more - or keep them this high at the very least. While it shouldn't be a surprise, the developers have officially confirmed that new DLC will be coming to GTA Online in 2020.
GTA Online will get a new type of race - we called it in our recent 2020 predictions article - named "open wheel races" which will feature entirely new vehicle types. Get ready for a lot of new weekly rides! We can also expect a few more "big updates and some surprises" as the year progresses.
Here's to an active 2020 in GTA Online!
