Grand Theft Auto Online Problems


Yesterday was a little bit of a rough start for Rockstar and their long awaited GTA Online. I don’t know about the rest of you but I wasn’t able to get passed the character creator. I will try again today but I’m not expecting much. Rockstar released an apology and a list of error messages and problems that you might be getting while trying to play GTA Online.

  • Occasional “Rockstar Cloud Servers Unavailable” error message
  • Freezing sometimes while loading into first race in GTAO with “waiting for other players” on the screen
  • Intermittent “Failed to Host a GTA Online Session” error messages
  • Race Corona (start area, marker) occasionally not showing up for first race
  • Errors saying “Timed out when matchmaking for a compatible GTA Online Session to join”
  • Occasional “Failed to start job” errors
  • General issues with the Social Club site and Social Club features (slow loading, failed logins, emails not arriving, etc). For more information on Social Club status, please see: http://support.rockstargames.com/hc/en-us/articles/200357093 

Rockstar also released an apology saying;

 “We are working around the clock to buy and add more servers, but this increased scale is only going to make the first few days even more temperamental than such things usually are.”

“We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this”

Hopefully things will get better sooner than later. I’m sure they are diligently working to make sure everything gets fixed in a timely manner. However, I have to wonder if it was such a great idea to go live with this service if they clearly weren’t ready. Anyways, let me know if you guys are able to get on and what kind of experience you have with Grand Theft Auto Online. Leave a comment below or on our Facebook page
