When “GTA Online” was launched on Oct. 1, it came with numerous big issues such as the lost of progression and the inability to connect to servers. The Rockstar North development team appears to have stabilized the multiplayer mode for “GTA 5,” however, as the latest patch only addressed the smaller problems.
Along with the title update, Rockstar Games will be releasing several new DLC packs, including the multiplayer beta content creator, in the near future for “GTA Online.” The company is also planning to launch new expansions for the single-player campaign sometime next year.
“GTA 5,” which came out on Sept. 17, was recently named the Game of the Year at the VGX event.
