10/11/2013: Patch 1.04 is expect to come to both PS3 and Xbox “sometime next week.” It will address the remaining issues of game progress loss, in specific losing purchased vehicles for some players. More

10/9/2013: Patch 1.03 has been released for PS3 and “sometime tomorrow” for Xbox. It prevents any further game progress loss (losing characters) from now on, limits the amount of money made from certain farming missions, and removes ability to replay missions repeatedly. (DOES NOT FIX PREVIOUS CHARACTER LOSS) Official title update notes from Rockstar

Important Notices:

Rockstar is giving every player $500,000 in GTA$ as a sorry or “stimulus package” in order to compensate for people losing character and experiencing bugs. More

Updated 6PM ET 10/6/13: We experienced some instability on PlayStation 3 around 11:00 AM ET and service was restored at 12:30 PM ET.  Another issue was seen on both platforms just before 4:00 PM ET and was resolved shortly after.  We have not forgotten about players who reported (and who continue to report) issues with lost characters, items, apartments, cars, or in-game money.  If you have lost any progress, please subscribe here for automatic email updates whenever there is news:” More

Note: Please do NOT use the “Retry” button after receiving the message “Rockstar Cloud Servers are unavailable” as this may result in loss of character data. If you are trying to access GTA Online and Rockstar Cloud Servers are unavailable, please exit to GTAV Story Mode and try entering GTA Online again through the Pause menu in Story Mode. We will be issuing a title update that will fix this issue as soon as possible.” More

Helpful Tips:

  • If you have not yet experienced character deletion, it is still possible to play online on PS3 and XBOX at this time; however, you still may be risking character deletion like other users. To avoid character deletion, do not save your progress if you are in free roam and there are no other players in the lobby. It might be a sign that you’re in a bad session and saving in this session may corrupt data [unconfirmed]. If you find yourself in a session alone, do not buy any large purchases or mods and turn the system off without saving. Your progress will not be saved, but your character data might not get deleted.
  • If you are trying to access online, and are brought to the character creation screen instead of your existing character, you may have had your character deleted; however, some users on Reddit are saying their character has come back. It is recommended NOT to create a new character, because it will overwrite your existing character data permanently and leave no chance for it coming back from Rockstar’s planned fix.
