Hold on GTA Onliners, Rockstar is on the job.
In the wake of the largest gaming release of all time, Grand Theft Auto V, developers Rockstar games were quick to launch the second part of their GTA takeover plan, Grand Theft Auto Online. However, it seems the launch of GTA Online hasn’t been nearly as acclaimed as that of GTA V, due to several technical issues with the game, mainly that of players losing saved progress data. Rockstar issued a statement concerning the issue:
“We are continuing to investigate the causes of the lost progress and what can be done to minimize the impact until a permanent fix is in place. Also, we have not forgotten about the requests for restoration. We are in the process of determining the options for addressing the issues for those players who have been affected.”
It seems that the issue is not yet fixed, hoever, but Rockstar is working on fixing all of the bugs. Just today they issued this new statement in an attempt to warn gamers from furthering the problem:
“If you have previously created a character but see an empty character selection screen when entering GTA Online, please back out to GTA5 Story Mode and try re-entering GTA Online through the pause menu (repeat or wait until Rockstar cloud servers are back up.cDo not create a new character in the empty slot where your character should be.”
