A spokesperson at Rockstar Games has commented on several subjects regarding “GTA Online.” According to the comments section of Rockstar Newswire on Oct. 11, the Rockstar North studio is planning to release the 1.04 title update for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of “GTA 5” sometime next week.
The new patch includes more fixes to the lost characters and progress glitches, including the bugs that resulted in the lost of vehicles. You can check out some screenshots from the fifth main entry of the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise in the slideshow to the top-left side of this article and the comments from Rockstar Games below (courtesy of Rockstar Newswire):
For those that are still having any technical issues, as mentioned above there is a title update coming next week that will include more fixes including the vehicle loss one – and we will remain committed to continuing to fine-tune the game to address any and all issues to get GTA Online running as smooth as possible.
The spokesperson also provided an update in regards to restoring lost characters and progress. Unfortunately, the development team could not find a way to bring back the deleted data. Instead, they will be offering a cash stimulus package as compensation. You can check out his comments below:
For those asking about their lost characters or rank, those will not be able to be restored so we sincerely hope that this cash stimulus we’re giving out this month will help you get back on your feet or to make your new life in Los Santos & Blaine extra sweet.
Finally, Rockstar Games confirmed that new contents, including heists, are still in development for “GTA Online” even with the launch problems:
For those asking about other forthcoming GTA Online content such as Heists, those are indeed in the works and we hope to provide an update with release timing soon.
