GTA Online Currently Down For Some Users Due To High Traffic From Heists Update

GTA Online is currently down for a number of users due to so many players trying to get in to games, this is obviously because of the brand new update that went live a few hours ago which included the long awaited heists.


Along with issues connecting to GTA Online there are also problems for the people who can actually get on GTA Online. They are unable to join heists or are getting kicked from heists randomly. The message "The job failed to load" or "Failed to join job or activity" also seems to pop up too.

Don't worry, doesn't seem to be happening to everyone at least. So there is still a chance it'll work.

What did you expect? the game didn't really work before the heists, massive loading times along with constant disconnects from servers, and as usual no one complains or says anything just because it's GTA and rockstar...

You and the million or so others with the exact same idea lol and that's most likely the cause of the problem.

What a joke. R*, what happened to you?

Online gaming happened.. They're still amazing game developers but they are pretty poor with internet related things...

R* was a online innovator with RDR freeroam, and even GTAV IV freeroam.

But, a lot has happened since then

I can join 2/10 random heists, but can't start my own, and get frequent disconnects.. Was fine this morning!

Just tried 5 times in a row to start a heist. Tired of trying.

Updated the story with the in game connecting issues and freezing when trying to start heists.

Looks like it's going to be another GTA Online launch.

I am just going to assume that when PC launches it'll be down for at least a week. Maybe stable in 3 weeks. Just a hunch with all the delays. Plenty of time to finally complete the SP campaign though.
