GTA Online has had its share of problems, and Rockstar has recognized the issues at launch. The company has been scrambling for the last few days to shore up the GTA Online game mode to make it playable for fans. PlayStation 3 GTA V owners have gotten a title update released just a short while ago, and Rockstar says that an Xbox 360 update is on the way later today.
Rockstar has updated some of the things they’ve fixed on the PS3, and claim that “things are developing frequently”.
- 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
They claim to be working to get these issues ironed out and as “smooth as possible, as soon as possible”.
