GTA Online Census: The Story So Far

Posted on November 13 2014, 11:08am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

As we gear up to usher an entire new population into Los Santos and Blaine County with the release of Grand Theft Auto V on the PS4 and Xbox One next week – we just wanted to say thank you to the awesome and dedicated players that have made GTA Online such a nonstop thrill over the past year on PS3 and Xbox 360 so far. We may have provided the world and the tools, but it’s really you players who have made the Online world as amazing as it has become. We’ve dug up a few bits of Online census info as you can see below that help illustrate that point. 

We know you’re all excited for more Updates to come and we’ve got some really exciting stuff in the works to continue adding to, expanding and evolving the world of Grand Theft Auto Online – including the highly anticipated launch of Online Heists which will be available for all four consoles as the first GTA Online Update to happen after the game launches on PS4 and Xbox One. We’ll have some details on that very soon as well.

    Thanks again to all you amazing GTA Online players worldwide - Looking forward to the next year and many more with you ahead!

    For those who’ve been asking about the number of countries shown, FYI our statistics adhere to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which have up to 249 officially assigned country codes.
    You can read more about the ISO here:
    The ISO accounts for territories beyond what the U.N. recognizes and by the way, here’s a couple additional fun facts:
    Our records show 7 GTA Online players in the Vatican City State, and 1 player in Antarctica who we are guessing is someone taking a break from work at the South Pole Research Station ( to escape to Los Santos for a bit!

      When will you be able to rob banks with out going into heists? I think you would get a lot of play especially if there is more than on3 bank.

            What happens if Rockstar servers or xbox live goes down in the middle of a hesit mission? As a heist leader, do you lose all the money you spent and is the heist mission pretty much over?

                    Im so dissapointed in gta online play for countless reasons. 1 the constant unable to put crews in the same team in tdms. 2 unable to connect with friends and crew members in any job dm or in anything. constant timing out while waiting on matches final and last comment enable a d@^^n posse system to erraticate the breaking up of friends and crew members. Whodat

                                      @nhocolado Yes, its another free dlc for all platforms.

                                      They haven't stated an exact date, only early next year, but I'm hopeful that it will be included with the PC version and will drop for the rest of us shortly there after
