Grand Theft Auto Online Launch Updates

Posted on October 4 2013, 6:06am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games, Social Club

Update: The latest title update for GTA Online is live for PlayStation 3. We're working to have this up for Xbox 360 as soon as possible today.
Thank you everyone for continuing to bear with us since yesterday’s initial roll out of Grand Theft Auto Online – we’re aware that a variety of technical difficulties have made it difficult to get access and that the experience has been a bit less than smooth for many of you who jumped in straight away, so here are a few updates as of this afternoon to keep you all apprised.
At the Rockstar Games Support site, there is a dedicated article listing out the most common technical issues being reported. Things are changing and developing frequently but here are some latest updates as of this afternoon:
  • 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. 
You can keep updated on these and other common issues by subscribing to the GTA Online Launch Status Rockstar Support article at Subscribers will be sent an automatic notification as updates happen. 
All of these initial technical issues will be ironed out as soon as we can. Please know that the entire team here at Rockstar and all of our relevant partners are and will continue to be working around the clock to get the experience to be as smooth as possible, as soon as possible.
In the meantime, for anyone experiencing technical problems, we encourage you to report them to our dedicated Support Team at and at This is the best place to get direct technical help and we are constantly looking at the most commonly reported issues there to resolve.
For those of you who have been getting into and playing GTA Online, we also encourage you to please share your gameplay experience feedback with us at so that we may know what aspects you’re liking and disliking to help guide how the game will grow and evolve past this initial period.
Thanks again everyone for your patience and your support – we will continue to keep you updated.

    Hey, Rockstar. My suggestion is really simple. Could you please make the Titan's and the Cargo Bob have their own button on the ps3 controller to open the cargo doors. So we could put people, Vehicles, and random stuff in it. It'll be fun to play around with it. :3

          Have ideas. 1 . With your phone (ifruit) , maybe we would be able to buy with GTA money our own music (songs) from your catalogue on a playlist ,1-2 GTA dollars per song . 2. A update called the PACIFIC RIM. This would span though the Americas , Asia , Australia , and the Pacific islands , including New Zealand . Lots of weaponry can be placed from the rim , let alone clothing. i am an avid fan and a player of GTA V . Maybe something to think about ?

            Hey Rockstar can you come out with a Hood Or Gangsta DLC or whatever you wanna call it, and in it have some missions in the hoodlike going to a house and stealing money or drugs, but most importantly coming out with new cars and clothes, clothes to be more specific. I'm part of a Grove gang and i know a balls gang and other people in different gangs that all agree that we should get green and purple and red ( all colors ) bandanas that cover your face like Franklin has and some different colored L S fitted baseball caps and some different colored football jerseys and flannels and letter man jackets ext. like what the computers on Grove street wear for example. If you read this, whether or not you take this in consideration which i hope you do, thank you for your time and keep up the good work!

              I respect you don't want me to cheat, I haven't and won't. But making money through missions over and over takes forever. I don't have that time and I play a lot. And I don't want to buy money off the shop it costs to much I'm a kid I don't have that money. There's people who have made wealth, but with CHEATS. And then there is people like me who work to get it but still don't have a lot at all. So please make it easier to make money like more money per mission, heists ,it would make the game sooooooo much more fun for everyone, I mean come on 2,000,000 for a plane it took me a couple of months to get 200,000 and I played a lot.

                          in the next update can you make it so that the MTL FLATBED truck can drive around with a car on it . buy the truck from pegasus pull down on the right analog to lower truck bed and push it back up to raise truck bed to normal then RIGHT on D-PAD to lock car on . Hydraulics for all cars and more upgrades for cars like bo---its . widebo---its . and different car engine sounds when you change exhaust and engine upgrades . sounds like rotarys v8s ect..

                            Hi rockstar, it would be amazing if you added a land rover defender to the game and if you were able to buy the Karin's futo and sultan. The most amazing thing you could possibly do though is if we were able to buy and sell vheicles from eachother, thank you.
