The release of Heists, coupled with Xbox Live problems, have strained Rockstar’s services.
Heists are finally available for Grand Theft Auto Online and naturally for a game with more than 45 million copies sold worldwide, there’s bound to be server issues with so many players updating at once. Many players reported problems in connecting to GTA Online and accessing Heists and the problems with Xbox Live didn’t help either.
Rockstar updated its support page to state that, “We are aware of some issues today with players having problems connecting to GTA Online, as well as issues with the Xbox Live service. We are working to restore full access to GTA Online as quickly as possible. In the meantime, please stay tuned to this page to monitor the performance of all platforms.”
As of now, the status of services across all platforms – along with the status of the Rockstar Social Club – is good. Stay tuned for more information regarding Grand Theft Auto Online and let us know what you think of the Heists, if you’ve managed to play them at all.
