GTA Online down reports are surging at the moment, with Grand Theft Auto 5 players experiencing problems on the PS4, Xbox One and PCs.
Independent outage monitor Down Detector has seen a huge spike in GTA Online down reports today, with widespread issues with online play reported.
Down Detector stats show out of those affected, some 77 per cent are having online play issues with GTA while others have been hit with Social Club problems.
The Down Detector outage map says the GTA Online issues are mainly affecting users in the UK, Europe and the US.
While the official Rockstar Games Service Status page says there currently are GTA Online issues across all platforms.
So there is a limited GTA Online service for those playing on the PS4, Xbox One and PCs.
As the GTA Online issues hit players took to social networking site Twitter to report problems with the hugely popular game.
One tweeted: “@RockstarSupport is the online GTA servers down at the moment?”
And another posted: “@RockstarSupport gta online servers down on PS4”.
While one wrote: “@RockstarSupport GTA online servers down on Xbox One”.
The reported GTA Online server issues come as time is running out to download Grand Theft Auto 5 for free from the Epic Games Store.
The free GTA 5 download offer went live last Thursday at 4pm BST and is ending today at the same time today.
When the amazing offer went live last week the huge demand sent the Epic Games Store offline as soon as the deal became available.
In the days that followed there were a number of widespread GTA Online server issues.
This began on Friday May 15 – the day after the GTA 5 free download deal became available – with other outages reported on both days over the weekend.
Like with previous outages, Down Detector has registered thousands of reports of GTA Online down today (Thursday May 21).
