Bet you. With all the glitches/exploits gone wild they will have to. Once they patch this game and get things running smoothly I almost guarantee they will wipe everyone for all the people who haven't been able to play or have lost characters. We will all start from a clean slate.
Also, to those people who exploit and cheat let me explain something to you. This game is ABOUT making money. That's the whole point. To feel a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment when you buy a shiny car or a purty apartment. As people mature and lose that need to have INSTANT GRATIFICATION we start to understand its about the journey not the end. So when you are level 999 and you have every car and the best apartment you are the ones who come into the forum yelling GTA ONLINE SUCKS THERE IS NOTHING TO DO!!! Just some advice.
