Rockstar Cloud Services failure causes data loss in GTA 5

Posted by iwgcr

While recently published video game Grand Theft Auto 5 keeps breaking all sales records, its developer, Rockstar Games, has been experiencing major issues with the cloud service that’s responsible for saving user game data. A number of players have reported a loss of character, game money, items and more when playing GTA Online.  Although Rockstar at first seemed to be trying to get back the lost data, on October 11th 2013 at 3 PM ET they apologized to all of the players affected by the problem and posted the following message:

“For those asking about their lost characters or rank, those will not be able to be restored so we sincerely hope that this cash stimulus we’re giving out this month will help you get back on your feet or to make your new life in Los Santos & Blaine extra sweet.”
