It’s not often that Grand Theft Auto Online sees server issues, but it does happen from time to time. For players on console, GTA server issues can be caused by the platforms’ maintenance or own server problems rather than something on Rockstar’s end. In this guide, we’ll show you how to check GTA Online server status and whether the GTA servers are down, regardless of the platform you’re playing on.
How to Check GTA Online Server Status
Typical of Rockstar, the developer has its own server status page to give an at-a-glance look at all of each game’s current statuses on every platform. It’s not too hard to find, either.
You can check the current GTA server status by going onto the official Rockstar server status page and looking at the listings for each of their games. Their individual platforms are listed just below their titles.
- Green dots mean the servers are stable.
- Yellow dots mean the servers are having difficulties.
- Red dots mean the servers are down.
At the time of writing, the server status for Grand Theft Auto Online on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 are both marked with yellow dots. This is due to a PSN issue rather than a Rockstar one, but they should be resuming normal status soon enough. This would also happen if the Xbox servers were having issues or under maintenance.
It’s also worth noting there may be issues with transactions if you play on PC and see that the PC indicator is green under Grand Theft Auto Online itself but that the nodes under the Rockstar Games Launcher are yellow or red. In most cases, this won’t affect online play, but it’s worth noting.
