Grand Theft Auto Servers Face Issues

The online version of GTA may give rise to some growing pains for both the game’s makers and players. Rockstar, the company behind GTA, has openly acknowledged that the shift of the game to an online environment has caused an overwhelming response. In fact that load is too high for their servers and they will be looking forward to buying new servers. The staff is working 24/7 in order to fix the issue by adding servers to its backlog. 

The company states officially on its blog, "We are humbled and overwhelmed by the response to Grand Theft Auto V – literally overwhelmed in the case of some of our servers!"

The online variety of GTA has over 16 players that hide behind avatars. GTA is basically a game based on violence and crime. It is only for those above 18 years of age. Over 15 million units have been purchased within the last week or so.  

About 2 million players will be playing GTA Online since the first day of its debut. Since Rockstar hasn’t attempted any game provision on such a massive scale before, it can expect some last minute issues. Even the World of Warcraft never had so many players as GTA has today. It is truly a success story. 

Many other games of fame and glory have had to face similar hurdles in their engagement with their player base. The matter is not any different in case of GTA Online either. It has been facing connectivity issues since its launch. But the owners are in the process of fixing the problem.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
