GTA 5 DOWN: Online Server Status and PS4, Xbox, PC news from Rockstar Games

GTA 5 Online servers are experiencing issues as Rockstar severs struggle on 1 February 2020.

GTA 5 Online appears to be down, or at the very least experiencing problems with the Rockstar Games’ servers

GTA 5 Online is down this evening with a surge of reports suggesting the service has gone offline.

This doesn’t appear to be linked to PlayStation, Xbox or Steam services, which would suggest the problems are coming from Rockstar Games.

The popular online game started to experience connectivity issues at around 5.30 pm GMT this afternoon with gamers still unable to log in and play at the time of writing.

Independent outage monitor Down Detector has received a surge of GTA 5 down reports with the majority of issues relating to connection problems with ‘Online Play’ and a smaller amount with the Rockstar Social Club.

The Down Detector outage map says the problems are mainly hitting users in the UK, Europe and some smaller parts of the US on the east coast.

Down Detector has also seen a peak of 800 ‘GTA 5 down’ reports across the world from users in the past few minutes.

However, that’s just on the UK down detector website. Over on the US version of the site, reports of GTA 5 being down have topped out at just shy of 3000.

GTA 5 down has registered just short of 3000 complaints in the last few minutes.

At the time of writing, there’s no word on what might be wrong with the servers online service or when it might be fixed. The fact it’s a weekend makes it all the more frustrating for users too.

Rockstar Games support has yet to issue a message, but there is some information to be gathered from the game’s official website.

A look at the game developers support website – support.rockstargames.com – shows that the service status for both Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online are showing as “limited”

A quick check online with the games community also shows that the game is experiencing issues. And it doesn’t appear to just be PS4 players suffering.

“I have issues with online. Its saying “Saving failed. Unable to connect to rockstar game servers” one player wrote.

Another added: “The GTA Online servers are not “saving” my progress! I tried loading into a new session, that didn’t work, so I restarted the game and I couldn’t even connect to an Online server!”

Whilst a third said: @RockstarGames What’s going on with the Casino Heists today? Every single one I’ve tried to join has crapped out within moments. I’ve reloaded the game 4 times now and it’s still not working.”
