The good news is that Grand Theft Auto Online is now working. The bad news is that there are still issues with players losing their items.
A patch released late last week for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Grand Theft Auto V seems to have largely resolved the connection issues that had been dogging the title, with widespread reports of easy access appearing online over the weekend.
However, Rockstar has confirmed that some users are still experiencing problems with their online items and characters vanishing from their inventories.
“We are continuing to investigate the causes of the lost progress and what can be done to minimize the impact until a permanent fix is in place,” it stated. “Also, we have not forgotten about the requests for restoration. We are in the process of determining the options for addressing the issues for those players who have been affected.”
Rockstar also explained that users who continue to play on after seeing the “Rockstar Cloud Services are unavailable” message multiplayer progress in that session will not be saved.
