GTA 5 Online

GTA V or GTA 5 as everyone calls it will have problems now and then, the game by Rockstar Games includes both single player offline and online mode with multiplayer, and people do have issues. As we all know regular patch updates, maintenance, new features and enhancements to the game are always occurring.

Because of these update there could be teething problems, worst-case scenario is when the servers completely go down and GTA 5 Online problems happen. GTA 5 online going down on the likes of the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC etc will most definitely upset players and this is where people can come and share their problems with us as well as sharing with others.

Updates are important for GTA 5 Online but downtime is not, when the Grand Theft Auto Online servers go down reports will show up on this page. Please do report if you have any issues with the game with your problem and location.

  • Playstation ✅

    For all users of PlayStation a quick fix might enable you’re ability to get online in Grand Theft Auto V if you are having issues connecting to the online service.
    1: Turn off you’re PS4/PS3 Console
    2: Disconnect you’re internet connection for 5 minutes
    3: Reconnect you’re connection and turn on you’re PlayStation device
    4: Load up Grand Theft Auto and you should be able to get back into the online servers.

    Please Note: This method will only work when the servers are online and running, if the servers are down for maintenance and/or PSN network is down this method will not work.

  • I see you, thanks for the information

  • Jacob Mazza

    What’s going on with the US server

  • Joe


  • john

    pretty sure that they’re updating some in game money glitches currently going on and the support team is working on it with a possibility that someone'(s) are ddosing or shutting down the servers by force as seen with Instagram and facebook.


    Servers down here in colorado as well!!??._.

  • Nathan

    What is going on?

  • Dildoupyourbutt

    It’s allover the whole world really, cockstar sucks ass!

  • Atlas

    No, they are just patching stuff, fixing glitches and other issues. Lmao you try fixing it. It’s not exactly easy. Rockstar is actually a pretty good gaming company, things like this happen it’s normal especially for online games. So stop acting so childish, the servers will be back up soon. The world isn’t going to end because gta or rdr2 is down temporarily

  • Randall Henry

  • Garras Porgratix

    Bait and switch. Old car salesman tactics.

  • Tre Gimp

    My game wont allow me entry currently since i pay a lot to play and i dont cheat im pretty offended at my denied entry

  • Ruhamah Ray

    I went to go online and it says temporarily unavailable. At first I thought my PS PLUS needed to be renewed but I guess it’s an update.

  • MyDeadlySecrets

    It says the rockstar game services are unavailable right now, when i go online

  • Amber Dougela

    I got onto gta 5 today on Xbox and it’s saying online services down. Do y’all think it’s because of the new update coming out in a week?

  • 4EvEr GhOsT

    I doubt it ’cause I keep trying to join GTA 5 Online on my PS3 and it says “Timed out locating session. Please join GTA V and try again later” and I say I doubt it’s the Cayo Percio update because GTA 5 Online on PS3 hasn’t had an update since it first dropped and that was 7 years ago, but then again, there is the possibility of the Cayo Percio update interfering with all platform servers

  • Troy Williams

    I’m getting all kind of this happened. I been noticing my money bleeding out. But can’t find were its going. They must know I’m so mad. I work hard saving money. This so bad never had this problem
