I’m sure you have seen the complaints in forums or on twitter of the connectivity issues and problems on Grand Theft Auto V’s online multiplayer. Well it has not gone unnoticed as Rockstar issued a statement on their website detailing what they are trying to do to fix all the issues and get everybody in on the action. Rockstar claims to have it’s entire staff working around the clock to clean up technical and connection issues to better the player’s experience as a whole. The whole announcement from Rockstar can be seen here but here is a little bit of what they are fixing.
- 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.
