Rockstar preps GTA V buyers for possible launch problems

by William Schwartz


Rockstar is readying the release of Grand Theft Auto 5 on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The updated and improved versions of the open-world title will see a Day One patch that will available on Monday ahead of release, and will include last minute tweaks and optimization fixes for a better day one experience, but Rockstar hasn’t ruled out the possibility of unforeseen problems.

“We have, of course, tested the game extensively but there is no way our several hundred testers can be quite as comprehensive as millions of players! Please bear with us should any issues arise — we will be working hard to fix any problems that arise, and generally ensure this launch is as smooth as possible.”

At this point, anyone purchasing and playing a game on day one should be expecting issues, regardless of the developer. More often than not, the day one experience for many games have been broken and unplayable. Those who purchased GTA V on the Xbox 360 or PS3 will remember the issues that plagued GTA Online following release.

We’ll have to wait and see how well Rockstar handles issues that arise, if any, when GTA V launches on PS4 and Xbox One on November 18th.
