Developer warning gamers to expect issues during launch window

Grand Theft Auto V has been wowing gamers for a couple of weeks now, but so far we've only seen part of what Rockstar has planned for us. On top of the huge single player campaign, there's also the small matter of Grand Theft Auto Online, the epic multiplayer component of the game that goes live on October 1st.

With less than a week to go until the game launches, Rockstar is taking the opportunity to warn gamers not to expect too much initially. Massive online game launches are traditionally plagued with issues, and the developer isn't expecting theirs to be any different. In an official statement to players, the company said:

"The first couple of weeks we expect to be heavily focused on tuning the experience as it goes from internal testing to the reality of being played by tons of people in the real world so that all the usual teething problems for an online game are overcome. We hope it will all run incredibly smoothly, but please bear with us if it doesn't, and help us fix any and all problems."

Translation? We're all going to be beta testers for the first few weeks. So if things come unstuck while you're playing with your buddies, you'll be able to report the issue directly to Rockstar by emailing them atGTAOnline@rockstargames.com... good luck to whoever's going to be manning that inbox! They'll need it!
