We have some bad news to bring to you now, for those players that have experienced problems with GTA Online, with specific relation to characters disappearing or being deleted altogether without reason. It appears that the recent cash handout was a softening blow as Rockstar has just confirmed that you won’t be able to get your character back if it has been deleted.
This is going to be a hard pill to swallow indeed for those that have spent precious money customizing their character, only to find out that they are never coming back. Rockstar revealed the bad news over at their support section of the company’s website.
If your character has been deleted for whatever reason, you won’t be able to get them back. That also means that you should kiss goodbye to any high rank that you had taken the time to earn online and you’ll have to start from scratch hoping that the issues don’t happen again.
Is this kind of situation a big example why switching to cloud-based game storage is a good idea for the future? Imagine if Rockstar are able to store all GTA 6 data on their cloud, instead of on local users’ systems.
It would eliminate problems like this from ever occurring again and it must surely be a consideration now from the developer, as a lot of gamers are mad. We’ve even read some feedback from many who say that they won’t play GTA Online again because of their character being deleted just suddenly.
Does $500,000 make up for the loss of rank and data in your opinion or not? Hopefully players will be getting their first $250,000 payment along with the 1.04 patch later this week on Xbox 360 and PS3.
Give us your thoughts on Rockstar’s statement below. What rank was your character before it went missing in the game?
