Rockstar Warns of GTA Online Teething Problems
Rockstar, makers of the recently released smash hit Grand Theft Auto V, have warned players not to expect the earth when GTA online launches at the beginning of October.
It may come as a disappointment to hear that, however it makes a change from developers promising the earth to only fall flat on their faces when massive amounts of players hit the server on launch.
Rockstar has this to say: “The first couple of weeks we expect to be heavily focused on tuning the experience as it goes from internal testing to the reality of being played by tons of people in the real world so that all the usual teething problems for an online game are overcome. We hope it will all run incredibly smoothly, but please bear with us if it doesn’t, and help us fix any and all problems!”
They added: “More than ever, we need your help to report your experiences, findings, likes, loves, dislikes and hates – and we will be looking at your feedback constantly to tune the game into its optimal shape and help guide how Grand Theft Auto Online will grow and evolve past this initial period. We will be checking out how people are playing and what they are not playing or not enjoying, while also monitoring feedback via two other new Rockstar channels.”
Personally I am very excited for GTA online and if anything this reaffirms this, the fact they are going to listen to the community and adjust accordingly can only be a good thing. Bravo Rockstar.
