The Grand Theft Auto V game servers are down for some on March 10, which has occurred a few hours after the Heists DLC went live today. There’s a number of messages being reported on PS4, Xbox One, and older consoles that include “Rockstar game services unavailable” and “cannot connect to GTA servers”.
It is not clear why the GTA V game servers are down right now, or if this is some sort of last minute maintenance taking place after the 1.07 update on PS4. It’s also worth noting the patch version is different by platform.
At the time of writing the GTA V Online server status hasn’t change, but we have reached out to Rockstar on social channels to find out why there’s problems right now. Some of Product Reviews readers report a new online policy has taken place, so a few of you might not be able to connect due to needing to accept the online policy.
Are you seeing GTA V game servers down on March 10, or did you find everything working after accepting the online policy? We just managed to get connected in the UK, although there clearly is issues for thousands not able to get online.
You can see the Rockstar Games Online Polices message in the screenshot above on this page. Again, this mightn’t be anything to do with the outage taking place and problems some people are having getting online to play Heists. It’s also good to remember how long we have been waiting for GTA Online Heists, so the servers might be under heavy demand right now.
