Rockstar Apologizes for Rocky Grand Theft Auto Online Launch

Grand Theft Auto Online, the multiplayer companion to Grand Theft Auto V, launched today and Rockstar is already apologizing for early technical issues. Of course, Rockstar warned on Monday that it expected a few hiccups here and there as hundreds of thousands or even millions of players converged on the service.

In an update at its support page today, Rockstar Games said that it would "be updating this page as often as possible with the status of issues we are aware of and looking into."

Some of the issues the company is aware of as of this writing include the occasional "Rockstar Cloud Servers Unavailable" error message, freezing while loading into first race in GTAO with "waiting for other players" on the screen, intermittent "Failed to Host a GTA Online Session" error messages, Race Corona (start area, marker) occasionally not showing up for first race, errors saying "Timed out when matchmaking for a compatible GTA Online Session to join," occasional errors about jobs failing to start or load, and general issues with the Social Club site and Social Club features (slow loading, failed logins, emails not arriving, etc).

"We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this," the company said in the close of its update.

To keep abreast of the latest errors and Rockstar's efforts to fix those problems, keep an eye on its support page.
