Rockstar Will not be Able to Restore Lost Characters or Rank in Grand Theft Auto Online

One of the biggest problems Grand Theft Auto V has experienced is the loss of characters or rank in Grand Theft Auto Online. It looked as though Rockstar would be able to fix this issue, but in their latest update, they revealed that it unfortunately won’t be happening:

Hi everyone,

For those that are still having any technical issues, as mentioned above there is a title update coming next week that will include more fixes including the vehicle loss one – and we will remain committed to continuing to fine-tune the game to address any and all issues to get GTA Online running as smooth as possible. Please remember to visit the Rockstar Support site at for the latest info or to report your problem if you don’t see it there.

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.

For those asking about other forthcoming GTA Online content such as Heists, those are indeed in the works and we hope to provide an update with release timing soon.

Thanks all
