GTA 5 Online Fix Could Come Tomorrow

By  |  46 Comments

Grand Theft Auto 5 players who have been experiencing issues with Grand Theft Auto Online should get the relief they’ve been looking for soon as Rockstar has promised a title update for as soon as tomorrow, an update it says should take care of the issues that have been plaguing players since the GTA 5 Online release earlier this week.

On Tuesday, Rockstar unleashed the GTA 5 Online, an open world where GTA 5 players can tackle jobs, compete in races or simply just cause mayhem together inside of the game’s massive open world. Problem is, GTA 5 Online issues have prevented many players from actually experiencing the game online and those who have actually managed to get in the game have been reporting a host of bugs plaguing the gameplay.

Switching characters could help with common GTA Online problems.

While it will take awhile before GTA 5 Online is void of major bugs, it looks like Rockstar is at least cooking up a fix for those that can’t progress past the opening tutorial.

Rockstar has been working around the clock to fix the issues that have been preventing players from entering GTA 5 Online. And it looks like the company will be delivering a fix for those issues tomorrow in the form of a title update. On the company’s website, Rockstar claims that:

We’re currently working on a title update for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to address commonly reported issues with GTA Online. We hope to have it out for download as soon as tomorrow.

It looks like the update will be aimed at the major issues that users are encountering including cloud server issues, failure to host GTA Online sessions, and the inability to move past the opening tutorial which forces players to select a car and complete a race.

Rockstar says that some users have found success using temporary fixes including deleting characters and deleting the previous title update from the Xbox’s memory though those aren’t working for everyone. Users reporting successes have often had to wait for at least 10 minutes before the race actually begins.

The company had previously warned players that GTA Online would be full of issues and bugs when it arrived though players likely didn’t expect to not be able to access the service at all.

          He’s right no need to be a dick, but its a failure of a game because 2 days after online launch they have issues? I would like to see you make a game this massive and popular and not have any problems

            He isnt a major game company who spends millions making only games and has been incorporating online for almost 8 years. They hyped the online constantly, only to wait until the night before to say “btw guys, its broken” they seperated releases so all the bugs and crap in multiplayer wouldnt hurt their reviews. Wecan complain

          At this point I agree with you. Not only has R* made a ton of money from a game that’s not complete, we get to read stupid empty promises like “we’ll get it fixed today….well not today but tomorrow”. So before you go bashing this guy remember that there are supposed PROFESSINALS that made make games like this. Get your stiff together R*

      Slim dick and j faggot.. You guys are mad that you guys bought gta a single player game converting into online and think it will be one hundred percent perfect?? This is like Alpha Beta right now.. So if you want to return the game do it… I’m just saying you will be mad when everyone is playing in a week or 2…

      • Immanuel Alston

        10/03/2013 at 6:27 pm

        Its not that it isnt perfect. It that for 90% of people, it doesnt work at all. If it was a beta, they should have released it as a beta, instead of calling it the real thing. It is a mess, and if they knew it would be broken, they couldve released it on time, and maybe by now, those issues would be fixed

        Moron, it’s been in beta form since april. The game was pushed back 5-6 months till sept 17th, people should be pissed we got an incomplete game. There’s a reason they pushed this game back for as long as they did, they should have fixed all their problems! Don’t flame people if you have no clue what you’re talking about.

    Complete failure no matter how they spin this. I hope Take-Two Interactive Software enjoys the money since it might be the last time Rockstar is this hot. If you got shares you better sell them quick while the selling is good.

It angers me when I was 1 of those who queued for the 12am launch to be let down by such a massive failure rock star ya deffo dropped the preverbial ball this time I recon we should be getting some free dlc for our massive let down!!!!!

    Yes I agree that rockstar messed up but they said that this is a seperate game from sp. this is their first online game where you can do everything in sp online. And , think, how much data does it take to mod your car, rob a store, and do missions for everyone that plays.once again,”yes rockstar messed up but they will get it together and only time can help them, so instead of getting mad at them let’s try to help them resolve these problems by giving them as much time as they need.

    The literally should’ve put a “skip tutorial” button before the cut-scene, like most games do. Not only that, but did they even test run the multiplayer with beta testers? Or did they just make it and had the mind-set, “We’ll let everyone who paid $60+ for the game to experience problems with the Online” I mean, come on. And no, it’s not their first “online only” game, Red Dead Redemption and GTAIV and a lot of other Rockstar games have online multiplayer.

    I’m glad they took two weeks so everybody in my crew is on playing while I’ve tried around hundred times to get on and still can’t play. I’m glad NBA 2k14 is out and all of it is working.

  20. ripped off

    10/03/2013 at 8:23 pm

    How could they not be ready for this!!!!! Why even release they game if your not prepared? Its not user friendly first of all. Takes forever to get in the same game as your friends if you even get on. Complete disaster if you ask me. I want a full refund even if this stupid update does work. Mandatory tutorial!?!? For what? We know how to play the game already you idiots!!!!!! Get your heads out of your ass!!!!!

    I understand there will be errors on new online releases but, I work early morning until late afternoon so by the time I can get on the servers are full and I cant play/havent played. I dont think it is fair where someone that can get on when ever they want during the day can play because they dont have a responsibility inhabitanting them. A job shouldnt affectplayability.
