GTA Online Patch is Live on PS3

GTA Online

Rockstar is taking the recent issues with Grand Theft Auto Online very seriously. While many were speculating on a title update to happen sometime next week, Rockstar has released it today but has so for the PlayStation 3.

“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,” reads a statement passed along with a Rockstar spokesperson.

The developer also asked players to keep a wary eye out for more bugs and report any issues back to them pronto. This is surely not the last title update for the online mode and there will be many to come in quick succession, at least until GTA Online is perfectly stable. In the mean time the company has advised players to refer to the a dedicated support page which currently lists all known problems and bugs within the multiplayer mode.

Following the update going live for the PlayStation 3, players now will no longer be sitting in queues and finally can access the service altogether.

Previously many players reported of being unable to enter the game after completion of the tutorial. According to Rockstar the game was limiting number of concurrent GTA Online players but that is now fixed. For those who were experience issues with completing the tutorial itself, Rockstar has promised that to be fixed in a future update.

“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,” reads the statement.

“All of these initial technical issues will be ironed out as soon as we can,” Rockstar wrote. “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.”

Grand Theft Auto Online launched on Tuesday to server issues, freezing and a handful of bugs that prevented many players from accessing the service.
