Grand Theft Auto Online Launch Updates


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.

PLEASE bring cargo planes in to gta online. It would be a cool thing for role play, stunts, and extra online fun. Everybody would love them.

Okay rockstar so how about the military update i would want something like where we can have zancudo soliders gear and some added camo and maybe the merryweather gear and something like that and maybe camo car paints. Also if you have future updates please include the long sleeve vests from the valentines day massacre special that would be great i look forward to the next update rockstar. Thanks you guys.

For a future DLC for GTA 5 Online can you guys please add a Chevrolet Camaro. Please add this new muscle car idea into the game, I would love to drive this car in GTA 5 Online.

R* You should put a lock system on for Pegasus vehicles so other people cant take it on other people. Add more planes and boats and get more money for robbing a store and people can't kill you while your in passive mode when your in a car and put a 3 wheeler in the game and and different coolers of lights for your car and some neon under the car also a Stealth helicopter a stealth bomber and new clothing and camo face paint n camo paint job for your car n more new songs and add a hummer h1

Hydraulics and more lowrider cars


Fluffythefirst July 9, 2014

Idk if you guys can do this because of the age of the 360 but there's been lots of talk at import car meets with in the online and I keep hearing that it would be nice to have more upgrades to give it that realism with the cars. So far your dlc cars are exotic or classics And that's cool but there's well over 7000 people that would love some "JDM" cars or "D Class" cars. Also there's was one of your games back in the day that had hydrolics (sorry for spelling) that would be great again. You guys would make wayyyy more money on more people buying the game if you put coil overs for the car to be lowered super low. Ik there's a massive group of people that love.

Great game 9/10 can't wait for it on the Xbox One!
