Games developer Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V title has been plagued by online server issues since the online version launched on 1 October, 2013, but the developer is adamant that the servers will be running at full capacity soon.
“Thank you everyone for continuing to bear with us since Tuesday’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 appraised,” Rockstar Games said in a statement.
The company added that the PlayStation 3 version will be getting a patch very soon to address the current issues.
“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.”
While attempts have been made to resolve the issue, some technicalities still persisted.
“This morning, we experienced some instability across the GTA Online service 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.”
