GAMES DEVELOPER Rockstar has promised that it will soon launch an update for the somewhat beleaguered online version of Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) called GTA Online.
Since it launched on Tuesday, GTA Online has suffered some problems. Rockstar has already admitted that there are some issues and promised to fix them, and in its latest update it said that a cross-platform update is on the way.
"We're currently working on a title update for both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 to address commonly reported issues with GTA Online. We hope to have it out for download as soon as tomorrow," it said in a post to the Rockstar newswire.
"Thank you everyone for continuing to bear with us since yesterday's initial roll out of Grand Theft Auto Online - we're aware that a variety of technical difficulties have made it difficult to get access and that the experience has been a bit less than smooth for many of you who jumped in straight away."
With this in mind the firm has promised a number of fixes that will appear for both console versions of the game.
For example, it said that a common issue involving the number of concurrent players in the PS3 version should be fixed.
It's not all bad news, and some people have managed to get in and play. Rockstar has asked them to feed back on their good experiences with it. Presumably it is being overwhelmed with complaints.
"All of these initial technical issues will be ironed out as soon as we can. Please know that the entire team here at Rockstar and all of our relevant partners are and will continue to be working around the clock to get the experience to be as smooth as possible, as soon as possible," it added.
"Thanks again everyone for your patience and your support - we will continue to keep you updated." µ
