We were looking forward to having a quick session on GTA V, but it looks like the rare moment when we actually have time – we can’t. GTA V Online servers are down today, or at least we can’t connect to the game at the moment.
We logged into the game and were met with the message that says GTA V “Files required to play GTA Online could not be downloaded from the Rockstar Games Service.”
It looks like we are not the only ones having problems today either. Here is some feedback from other GTA V gamers who appear to be having the same problems that we are.
is GTA V server is still down ?

Hopefully this is just a minor issue and Rockstar are working on bringing the game back up to normal soon. The GTA V server status for us at the time of writing though is that we can’t play GTA V Online.
Have you been able to get into a game today in your area? Let us know if you have managed to fix the situation yourself, or if you are getting constant GTA V error messages like the one above.
We’ll update this when things are back to normal.
UPDATE: Well that didn’t last long. It looks like the GTA V servers are back online.
