GTA 5 – Large Scale Server Outages Reported Again

The gaming community has been angry this weekend following massive outages while trying to access and play Rockstar’s two most popular games Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2. This is not the first occasion such widespread reports have poured in about the outage.

Weekends invariably have a spike in the number of players wanting to play the game than on weekdays. Game developers while hosting the game will have to ensure their infrastructure is able to handle the increased volume of traffic.

Connectivity to Server had Problems

There are multiple reasons why you are unable to access certain pages on the web. One of them is your connection is not perfect whether it is a dialup or Wi-Fi connection. If you are able to access all other pages except the one you urgently need, then it cannot be with your connectivity. The other reason for such outages could be the server on which the preferred site is hosted. In the present instance, this is what appears to be the case. While the outage was not so widespread across the United States, countries in Europe appear to have been more severely affected.

The connectivity issues were first reported at around 2.30 pm (GST) in the afternoon of Sunday. The general complaint was that they could not access the site and log in to start playing. With the latest technology, it is feasible to see the number of outages in real-time. The report on this says that the app Down Detector which can measure such outages has been able to count 500+ reports of outages on the Rockstar site. Rockstar may attend to this once the weekend is over.

Websites see a surge in visitors on specific occasions. Weekends do happen to be when the surges can take place. The hosting infrastructure needs to take care of these spikes or surges and a secondary server could be the answer to this problem. The experts have ruled out any issue with regard to the gaming consoles like Xbox One or Play Station and other gadgets. The source of the issue clearly appears to be the Rockstar server.
