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.

Dear, RockStar
i have a very great idea for Gta Online to make it last longer. I personally think you guys could benefit from A Role Play System in Gta Online.This would not only bring life back into the game but would excel on the new gen consoles.
With 30 people in 1 server a lot can happen but when people are given roles to chose from excitement and entertainment grow. Just think about Arma III, The "Altas Life Mod" has given this game lots of fun along with people coming back. Gta has more potential with enhanced graphics,a huge map,and a versatile environment. There could be roles such as:
Drug Dealers (They sell Narcotics of course)
Police (patrol the city and stop gang fights as well as robbery maybe even ticket people)
Gangsters (different gangs within a server so you could fight to be on top while dogging cops)
Paramedics(Standard Emt revives everyone)
Civilians(go out and get jobs and earn money to buy what they want)
Fire Fighters(Put out fires)
And much more. Ive barley scratched the surface and hope you will at least think about adding this into the game at some point.

Hey R*, I've been playing the games in the GTA series from GTA III all the way up to GTA V. I feel that the GTA series is THE best game series, PERIOD! The campaign is amazing, no question. Online is AWESOME!! Now, things I think would be cool:

1. Skateboards
2. The houses are beautiful but need a lil more interaction. A console and video games like in GTA SA with multiple games would be cool, a soccer table, pool table, air hokey, dart board. Have a drinking game for players in apartments.
3. Allow players to be able to invite their friends to live with them and pay rent and kick them out
4. Able to turn up volume in apartment and host a party with friends where they'll buy weed and booze
5. Make a mall. City that big, no mall? The mall could have clothes shops, ammunation shops, game shops (apartment games mentioned above), convinience stores and so on
6. Open the casion
7. Give vehicles to friends
8. More sports if possible, basketball and baseball an dothers
9. More movies in the theatre
10. More night clubs to party with friends, and not just entering a marker making time fast forward and coming out drunk, we wanna see the actual party
11. More variety in clothes and hairstyles
12. Stealth missions, Co-operative stealth missions
13. Can we have wildlife online please
14. Ability to buy clothing and cars and apartments for other players or lend them the money to buy those
15. Ability to sell our own cars and apartments to other players

The game is awesome, to me, everything about it is perfect, except for a glitch here and there, but overall i give it a 99/100 anyday. I just feel sometimes that its more "making money" and not a whole lot of variety in spending it, maybe on top of adding more guns and cars and clothing, you add these too, i'd really appriciate it. You guys rock, and so does the game, thank u for the best game ever, both on and offline. And guys, we're still waiting on heists (for the PS3).

I think they should add a alien theme like the movie Independence Day where its chaos as aliens are flying in the skies and there are jets in the air dog fighting also in story like read dead with the zombies but with aliens and the update can be called "Welcome to Earth" where the cover is a pilot knocking out a crashed alien pilot just like the movie

Hey i think you should add a machete Or a paintball gun!

I usually don't play online public cause its garbage, but last night I was showing a friend. I noticed there were multiple people that were able to spawn right on top of me and kill me, I tried killing them but there character would glitch around and they could not be killed. Look into the spawn thing cause its extremely annoying to be killed over and over by these losers. ;)
