Players have been reporting problems with getting into GTA Online and other Rockstar Games services. So, here is where you can monitor any potential issues.

Since GTA V went free on the Epic Games store, new players have been flooding to the near-decade old title and running riot on the streets of Los Santos – though there were a few issues with the game going free. 

As the Rockstar servers have taken a battering from the influx of new players, fans have been reporting issues with the online services. Each time they log in, there are either greeted with the dreaded ‘Rockstar game services aren’t available at this time’ message or just cannot move around the city once they get in.

GTA Online server status: May 20


Just like a few days previous, the Rockstar Games servers appeared to be down. According to Down Detector, a website that monitors issues related to Grand Theft Auto Online and other games, there was a spike in server problem reports.

That said, the official Rockstar server status page showed no problems at all, which is a little strange.

According to Down Detector, players – chiefly in the UK – are reporting server issues in GTA.

Not being able to play is annoying but for many, it’s also especially annoying when you’re trying to get online and conduct your daily free spin at the Diamond Casino and Resort’s lucky wheel. 


A few hours later, Down Detector has confirmed that all is now well in the world of GTA Online – meaning players should be able to connect as normal.
