Over the weekend we published details about the Grand Theft Auto V Online server maintenance that’s taking place right now with servers down for another hour. This led to gamers wondering if the GTA Online 1.29 update is going live today, after the maintenance ends, although this isn’t the case and received confirmation from Rockstar Games on Twitter.
Ever since the GTA Online maintenance started today, players have been asking directly if new GTA V DLC will go live with the 1.29 update once servers return? You can see a few tweets within the screenshot below, even though there’s been hundreds of responses to eager gamers in relation to this exact question.
The general response from Rockstar Support is, “This is routine maintenance to improve overall online performance”. They continue to explain that the downtime isn’t, “related to new content”. This answers a number of questions Product Reviews has received from PS4 and Xbox One readers, asking about if new DLC will go live soon.
Currently, the GTA Online version is 1.28 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. The GTA V update notes for 1.28 can be seen on this official Rockstar page, so this is also the first place that will detail 1.29 release notes when they finally arrive in the next few months.
