Rockstar Games have finally responded to the recent mod menu exploit that has allowed cheaters to ban and corrupt anyone’s data in GTA Online. We reported a few days ago on the new hack that began causing destruction in the PC version of GTA Online. Since then, it has been quiet on Rockstar’s front despite the situation worsening. As a community, we’ve seen plenty of security issues with GTA Online on PC over the years and yet this one tops them all.
The lack of communication from Rockstar Games on social media over the weekend has certainly upset a lot of PC GTA Online players. Some might not realise the posts Rockstar Games did put out over the weekend were scheduled in advance. Despite it being the weekend, a simple statement would have gone a long way given how severe this ordeal has become. Reputable insider TezFunz2 noted on January 21st Rockstar Games were aware of the issue.
Rockstar Games did release a statement last night via their Support account on Twitter acknowledging the issue. They said they “are aware of potential new exploits in GTA Online for PC”. They go onto say that a new downloadable patch that intends to fix it will be released but did not give a timeframe unfortunately. The tweet ended with a request to reach out to their support team if you have been affected by any of this recent cheat. This means if you have had your account banned/corrupted by a cheater, contact Rockstar Support and they will assist you. Here’s their tweet:
We hope a proper fix can be implemented as swiftly as possible for the PC community of GTA Online players.
