Rockstar "working around the clock" to fix GTA Online issues
Developer says it remains committed to fixing known issues with Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode; "Please stay tuned for more updates."
"We are continuing to look into these issues and are working around the clock on resolving them as quickly as possible," Rockstar Games said. "This includes close monitoring of our Support systems, forums, social media, and in-game data to measure traffic along with Community sentiment to ensure ongoing improvements to stability. Please stay tuned for more updates."
GTA Online, the multiplayer mode for Grand Theft Auto V, launched yesterday on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Rockstar Games apologized for various launch issues and asked fans for patience as the developer works to fix the bugs.
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.
