Lost your GTA Online character? “Do not create a new one in the empty slot” say Rockstar
[Update 2: Rockstar admit that lost GTA Online characters are gone for ever.]
[Update 1: Rockstar has released a new GTA Online Update patching character, cash & save issues.]
I was lucky: my missing GTA Online character came back. Others haven’t been so fortunate with a host of reports involving missing or lost GTA Online characters, items and cash. Now Rockstar have updated its info saying you shouldn’t touch that empty character slot.
Lost your GTA Online character?
Here’s the new information from Rockstar’s support page:
Updated 10/8/13: If you have previously created a character but see an empty character selection screen when entering GTA Online, please back out to GTAV Story Mode and try re-entering GTA Online through the pause menu (repeat or wait until Rockstar cloud servers are back up). Do not create a new character in the empty slot where your character should be.
Thanks VG247, Rockstar
