Rockstar aiming to release GTA Online patch tomorrow

Developer says it is currently working on title update for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 that will address reported issues.

978 Comments

Some of Grand Theft Auto Online's numerous bugs and issues could be patched out as early as tomorrow, October 4, Rockstar Games said today.

No Caption Provided

"We're currently working on a title update for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to address commonly reported issues with GTA Online," the developer said in an update on its website. "We hope to have it out for download as soon as tomorrow."

GTA Online--the multiplayer mode forGrand Theft Auto V--has been beset with numerous issues since launch on Tuesday. In some cases, players have not been able to access the mode at all.

Yesterday, Rockstar removed microtransactions from GTA Online.

The launch issues for GTA Online were expected. Ahead of release last week, Rockstar said players should expect various "growing pains," including crashes, glitches, "crazy bugs," and gameplay modes and mechanics that need rebalancing.

These issues are "inevitable," Rockstar said at the time, due to the "massive" nature of the open-world game.

Every since OCT 1st. my ps3 would always lock up at the first race online. Than finally today I thought it might be my router so I changed my router type to open instead of moderate and it finally works.

16 player races are incredibly fun in this game. I spent all night last night doing almost nothing but racing and had a blast. For those of you who can't get on yet it's absolutely worth the wait. There are tons of new missions and other game modes besides racing and it's really fun. Personally I haven't had any issues getting on since the latest patch.

@jasonwhite334 me too, I got into online just as heists 2 and 3 kicked off together. The submarine heist went well, but the other one, where you need to secure the getaway car and garbage truck, will not start. I heard that maybe you need to do some side missions, so I did every single thing. The rampages were funny, and so was collecting crap for Nigel. But no heist start. My map is literally blank now apart from houses.

If something doesn't happen soon, time to trade this in.

@Dirty_Window @tripsta7 Exactly.

I waited to play for a few days after the online component was launched (fully expecting "bad things" like this), and now it's working like the champ. Haters can hate, but a tiny bit of patience always pays off with big MP launches.

@MAGIC-KINECT GTA V works perfectly and gave you well over $60 worth of entertainment. GTA Online was free, have some patience or just move on to something else.

@MAGIC-KINECT actually, it's really sad that they force online and can't even do it properly but to **** everyone who bought their shit.

I mean, can you imagine your bank account money would just vanish because of the server problem? And there are more people than in some game

@komuchen @MAGIC-KINECT How did they force online? its an extra feature of the game, and the single player has nothing to do with it.

@AggrandizedUser I don't have the luxury for patience. My game time has significantly dropped since I got a job, and losing 3 hours of character progression is something I am entitled to get a little grumpy about.

@turnerdoc I think there might have been a free live weekend, that might be the reason you were able to play online without Gold. I did not get a chance to check myself (I also don't have Gold) but I remember reading something about it being this past weekend.

@NightLord47 Yep -- fixed for me. Even had a car that I didn't care about magically reappear. I.e., one had disappeared that I never even noticed, but this patch seems to have replaced it.

@aidsta @NightLord47 @DemocraticTroll I know the feeling, believe me. First time I did that I thought it was a one-time thing, didn't think much about it. Then I noticed it happened every time I saved a modded car. I probably wasted 50k on this bug.

@DemocraticTroll Sounds like the patch fixed the "original deleted character" bug, but in doing so it replaced your replacement in that slot. Ouch.

First everyone pretends the game is perfect and rage that it didn't get a 10/10, to the point where they personally attack the reviewer. Now suddenly, it feels like everyone's tunes have changed.

*Facepalm*.

@TenraiSenshi I didn't care that it wasn't a 10/10, but the reason for the point deduction was stupid because he/she could have said other things and give it the same score.

Lost my lvl 18 character. Sighhh.

Oh well. Good thing beyond 2 souls is out tomorrow. I'll get my game fix there while R* sorts this mess out.

Oh and to those still playin GTAO, do NOT press retry when it states cloud servers are down. It may delete your char. (check rockstar's support page)

@A-Typing-Llama watching the fanboys rage is rather amusing really...

God, am I glad that I didn't pre-ordered this right away like a blind idiot...

Might get this one in a few months, when it's actually working fine
