Anyone who has played the new multiplayer mode for Grand Theft Auto V has likely experienced any number of issues with the online service as Rockstar Games warned players would likely happen during the initial days after the release of GTA Online. Detailing the most common problems that fans are running into, the developer released a list of currently known technical issues that gamers may encounter within GTA Online via the Rockstar Games Support website on Oct 2.
Rockstar Games has addressed that they are aware of and actively at work trying to fix the issues which are currently the largest problems facing those playing the online mode of GTA 5. Among the list is an entire section dedicated to issue surrounding gamers who are unable to progress past the first race mission of the GTA Online tutorial. These include problems where the game becomes stuck while looking for other players, the race’s initial cut-scene looping, or the race start marker failing to initiate. Many players are repeatedly running into several of these issues which leave them unable to complete the tutorial.
Problems regarding the network and cloud servers are also being addressed such as the Rockstar Cloud Servers becoming unavailable, timing out while matchmaking, and being unable to host a game sessions. Rockstar Games is also looking into to network issues which can lead to matchmaking taking up to 15 minutes in some instances.
Grand Theft Auto V is out now for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. GTA Online has also now been released as a free title update for all who own the base game.
