GTA Online update arriving to fix broken bits

Rockstar Games says the fix for Grand Theft Auto Online for the PlayStation 3 is in place -- and the one for Xbox 360 is coming before the weekend strikes.

You may have a better chance of playing Grand Theft Auto Online soon, after developer Rockstar Games announced it aims to have updates ready on Friday that fix the most common problems players have reported.

"The latest title update for GTA Online is live for PlayStation 3. We're working to have this up for Xbox 360 as soon as possible today," the game maker posted on Friday morning. The massively successful GTA V, which raked in $900 million the day it went on sale, introduced its online multiplayer mode earlier this week, with a warning that there might be glitches as millions of players rushed to connect.

A regularly updated status page has a long list of known issues, with players complaining of servers being unavailable, sessions timing out, missions failing to load properly, and becoming stuck in loading screens. The developer is desperate to get most of the problems fixed ahead of the weekend, when millions of players will certainly test the system to its limit. One benefit of this may be that connections are spread more evenly across the day, as opposed to all hitting the servers at once when they get home from school or work.
