After giving away GTA 5 for free on the Epic Games Store, GTA Online experienced an interruption.
Rockstar Games now warns that "the number of players is too high", which will cause problems when accessing GTA 5.
"Due to the extremely high number of players, we currently have problems using Rockstar gaming services (including Rockstar game launchers and PC's GTAV)," Rockstar support staff tweeted.
"We are actively working to solve the problem and will keep you informed of the latest changes."

Although it is temporarily unavailable, you still have the opportunity to play games on your PC for free for at least the next few days. This month's Epic Games Store Mega Sale will be held from May 14 to 21, and you will get the premium version of GTA 5, which provides more content based on the basic game.
In this regard, Grand Theft Auto Online has just undergone a major update, and we have written guides to help you start a new Gerald mission. You can also use our GTA online Peyote plant guide to turn into an animal.
