GTA Online is scheduled to go live on October 1st, two weeks after the release of GTA V as everyone should know. Rockstar has not talked about what time they plan to release GTA Online and they probably won't until the end of September but if GTA Online does release at midnight will you stay up to be one of the first to start up GTA Online? If GTA Online releases at midnight, it will probably be midnight EST time so for me it would be 9PM PST which I definitely plan on playing GTA Online the hour it goes up. If GTA Online releases at 12AM EST what time will it be where you live and will you be trying to play GTA Online the hour it goes live?

Like yourself I have no idea (apart from 1st October 2013!) when this will go live, but I will want to be 1 of the 1st people to be online.

I'm GMT (England) and as long as its NOT released between 2am and 5am then I shall be on it. If it does release between those times I'd rather miss the 3 hour slot, wake up fresh and play for the *insert days*. I'm hoping for an 11am GMT time as I can go jogging, get back, shower, sort my sh*t out (snacks/drinks etc) and then immerse myself in GTAO.

I do all-nighters for crap like this. If I hear of a release time, I'll be punctual.

I'm going to rise above my lesser friends and be their shepherd.

It would be 2pm where I am so that wouldn't be too bad actually. Would be nice to jump on and smash it till about 12am. Don't think i'll ever tire of it.

I'm assuming it'll be at Midnight or 10:00AM EST.
This is based on their history of starting all event weekends at 10:00AM.

It most likely won't be a "midnight release."

"According to a post from the comments section of the Rockstar Newswire website on Sept. 25, a representative from the company stated that they can not currently confirm when exactly the online multiplayer segment of the open-world action-adventure video game will be made available on its launch date."

Not convinced they'll commit to a fixed time, mainly to try and reduce the number of players hitting it at the exact time. i.e. leave people to check at times they'd naturally play, rather than targetting to play a particular time.

 

Although most of us will probably be in SP, checking the online tab every 30 seconds anyway.

" Guys WTF! I can't log on! "

" Guys WTF! it keeps crashing!"

" Guys WTF! the servers keep lagging! "

" Guys WTF! My CE content isn't appearing !" 

" Guys WTF is a server maintenance?! "

 

Are these some things that are in mind when you talk about posting on launch of an online GTA?

We will see topics like these flooded in the Online section of these forums lol, I guarantee it. R* has already said there will be issues and bugs to sort out the first few weeks.

I'm pretty sure you just go online in the PS3 store or XBOX Live and get an update. You're not going to a store to get a code...

O no seriously! When I picked up the game from gamestop on release day, I asked about the Online.

He said "Theres a chance that you will have to download the update from the PS store". In the pause menu in-game. But theres not a for sure answer.

Iv seen it a few times around here on the forums too.
