Rockstar has just flipped the switch for those who own a copy of Grand Theft Auto 5 to update their games so they can take part in Grand Theft Auto Online earlier this morning, and as you’d expect, the launch of the highly-anticipated multiplayer mode has hit a few snags.

According to a number of people publishing their experiences on various social networks, some users are experiencing server issues that have locked them out of Grand Theft Auto Online, making it also difficult for those who are able to access the multiplayer mode to actually find someone to play with.

Rockstar previously warned this may happen when Grand Theft Auto Online launches, even though the company preemptively purchased additional servers in preparation for its launch. Even with those preparations, Rockstar still warned when Grand Theft Auto Online launched, some users could expect to experience early connection issues, and that’s exactly what’s happening at this point.

If you are one of those users who are trying to get into Grand Theft Auto Online, it would be in your best interest to follow Rockstar Games’ Twitter and Facebook feeds since they will keep all of us updated on the status of their servers through those channels.
