GTA Online fans are experiencing issues with connecting to the game’s online features as the servers appear to be down for now. Rockstar Games hasn’t released any official statement yet. However, the team must already be investigating the issue causing online services to become unavailable.
Over the past hour, the GTA Online servers are down, causing thousands of gamers to get locked out of multiplayer.

Some players are already able to log into the GTA online servers normally, so give it some time and the problem will resolve on its own if you too are experiencing the issue.
