Files required brings GTA Online servers down again

We told you yesterday that GTA Online servers were down, due to scheduled maintenance from Rockstar. However now, we can see that our game has just gone offline again, once again showing the persistent “Files required to play GTA Online” could not be downloaded from the Rockstar game service error.

The strange thing is, is that Rockstar’s GTA Online server status page at the Rockstar support shows no outages on any platform at the moment.

However, we can confirm that this isn’t true as we’re seeing the Files Required error right now which is preventing us from playing.


We also see that Rockstar has removed the maintenance message that was highlighted in red yesterday on their Support page – which suggests to us that this is a new problem that they were not expecting and is certainly not scheduled maintenance.

Are the GTA V servers down for you today on February 3, late on Tuesday evening? Hopefully this is just a sporadic case and we’ll be able to connect soon.

The fact that it isn’t the first time that we’ve seen this specific error though, may be a sign of frustration since it doesn’t appear to have been fully fixed.

Give us your status at the moment. Is GTA Online not working for you at the moment with the same error or can you play without any problems?
