- Posted October 2nd, 2013 at 07:02 EDT by Michael Harradence
Grand Theft Auto Online experienced a number of teething problems following its launch on PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE yesterday, though developer Rockstar has assured fans it is ‘working around the clock’ to offer a remedy.
Writing on the company’s official news wire, the studio said: “We are continuing to look into these issue and are working around the clock on resolving them as quickly as possible.”
“These include close monitoring of our support systems, forums, social media, and in-game data to measure traffic along with community sentiment to ensure ongoing improvements to stability.”
Rockstar has flagged up nine of GTA Online’s most prolific issues. However, claims from some gamers that their single-player file has been wiped since going online have yet to be addressed by the company.
