Rockstar Games Working Around The Clock To Fix GTA Online Issues
Ryan Martin / 4 years ago
Engadget reports that the roll-out of Rockstar Games’ GTA Online did not go as smoothly as planned. On Tuesday many were unable to connect to the service, some of those who connected couldn’t complete the tutorial and some of those who got into the game ended up losing their created characters. Rockstar Games says it is now working “around the clock” to fix the problems with GTA Online. Rockstar Games have already fixed an issue with PSN users that limited the number of users and unblocked users who cannot get through the tutorial. Rockstar Games also disabled in-game micro-transactions with real money that were recently introduced.
“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.”
