The release of the multiplayer mode of Grand Theft Auto 5 was a failure of some kind due to the enormous amount of technical difficulties. If we look back a few weeks ago, we can see that Rockstar Games already predicted that this will happen. But why haven’t they done something about it before release date? We can’t really know for sure.
What we really do know is that they are working at this moment to fix every single issue out there and really give you the full Grand Theft Auto 5 Online experience in the fastest time possible.
Here are the latest updates regarding GTA 5 Online mode:
- For PlayStation 3 users, a PlayStation Network server issue was detected that was limiting the amount of possible concurrent users. This was preventing most players from accessing GTA Online altogether and as of this morning, that problem was resolved.
- There is an issue that is preventing some players from getting through the first tutorial mission across both platforms. Many players have been able to get through this with repeated retries, and we are working on unblocking this for everyone as soon as possible.
- This morning, we experienced some instability across the GTA Online services which is affecting even people who have progressed beyond the tutorial mission. We are identifying these issues now and are working to restore stability for users as soon as possible.
- For the time being and until we have been able to get everybody access to GTA Online and things are running smoothly, we have disabled the option of purchasable GTA$ cash packs. Players can however keep on earning GTA$ by pulling off Jobs and other profitable gameplay activities rather than purchasing cash packs.
