GTA Online: Lost Characters To Stay Lost, Rockstar Offers Consolation
Rockstar has made it official that any characters that were lost, during the initial technical problems of GTA Online, won’t be able to be restored.
The news was confirmed via an update on the developer’s Support Page, which stated that GTA Online characters that happened to disappear during the launch problems can’t be recovered.

Unfortunately, GTA Online has suffered connection issues since it launched on day one of October, but Rockstar is confident going forward.
As an apology for the trouble, Rockstar announced last Friday that its ‘cash stimulus package’, which offers $500,000 of in-game cash to each player, is meant to be a bit of consolation for lost progress and characters.
Rockstar’s statement on the site reads:
“Given some of the recent technical issues during these first days of GTA Online, and now that things are starting to look much smoother (touch wood!), we are planning to provide a special stimulus package for all who have played or will play Grand Theft Auto Online this month.
“We will be dropping a cool half a million GTA$ in the GTA Online bank accounts of all players this month, starting as early as next week.
“For those asking about their lost characters or rank, those will not be able to be restored so we sincerely hope that this cash stimulus we’re giving out this month will help you get back on your feet or to make your new life in Los Santos & Blaine extra sweet.”
Let’s hope that it’s smooth sailing from here for GTA Online.
If you’ve played it, what do you think of it so far? Our review should be going live pretty soon.
