New updates are added at the bottom of this story …….
The original story (published July 24, 2021) follows:
GTA Online is one of the best online multiplayer action-adventure games of all time. Developed by Rockstar, it is the online component of the best-selling GTA 5 game.
The game is currently available on all major consoles and platforms. It looks like GTA Online is here to stay for a few more years due to its popularity and active player base.
Located in the fictional state of San Andreas, the game allows up to 30 players to roam freely. Users can complete missions together or opt for competing or cooperative missions.
Over the years, GTA Online has been played and loved by millions of people around the world. Despite a lot of content, the game is sometimes riddled with glitches and bugs from time to time.
The issue prevents users from loading the game by greeting them with an error stating: “Rockstar services are not available or” Your save data could not be loaded from Rockstar cloud servers at this time.
@RockstarSupport A friend is having trouble logging into GTA Online. He receives an error indicating that Rockstar services are not available. Or its saved game is not available from the cloud. Help would be appreciated. Thank you.
@RockstarSupport I can’t access GTA online on ps4, every time I try it tells me it can’t get the saved data from Rockstar cloud servers.
Judging by the number of reports, we can safely say that something is indeed broken on the Rockstar side. However, according to Rockstar Games’ server health check, everything is fine.
It appears the company is still unaware of the issue preventing players from signing in to GTA Online on PS4 and PS5.
We hope Rockstar recognizes the problem soon and works on a fix. In the meantime, you can check the status of the server by clicking on this link.
