It looks like the GTA V online servers are down for some people today thanks to issues with needing to download files. This problem started after the 1.14 update arrived and at first it was thought this was an issue with demand, although Rockstar point out it’s some other type of glitch.
You can see our article from earlier about an error message telling users files are required to play GTA Online, although these gamers have already updated but might not have some other files that get installed when you connect to GTA Online for the first time after updating.
We’ve seen a number of tweets from players like the one below, which explains when they try to connect with friends online they get an error message pop up related to files being needed.

It looks like certain GTA V online servers are down that supply these files, or at least not working. Rockstar keeps repeating the same message on the official Rockstar support Twitter channel. This basically tells gamers they’re “resolving this issue as soon as possible”.
