GTA Online PC players say they're being left behind by console-only updates

GTA Online PC players say they're being left behind by console-only updates

GTA Online players on PC are disappointed with the lack of new features and content updates compared to what console players are getting.

Rockstar Games have been making some bizarre decisions with GTA Online recently. Following a new update, a bunch of content was recently removed and placed behind a paywall, only being accessible if you subscribe to GTA+, a service that’s exclusive to Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC. This essentially meant that players on last-gen consoles lost content with no way of getting it back.

Now, PC players are the ones being left behind, as several updates are missing from the port, only being released exclusively for console players. This includes technical features like ray-tracing, as well as in-game content like cars and player progression tools.

It seems PC users have had enough though, and are voicing their frustration on a Reddit thread reporting on the missing content.

“We got left behind ages ago when Rockstar allowed cheaters to run wild," said one player, while another added, "This shouldn't be surprising. Rockstar has always spit on PC, despite PC being one of the biggest markets for them. GTA 6 will release on consoles first and PC four years down the line.” Someone else said, "They left us behind when they decided that single player mode doesn't deserve any updates or DLC.”

The PC port for GTA V has had problems from the very beginning, mostly due to hackers and cheaters as one of the commenters rightly pointed out. Players could easily hack their game and cause chaos on the servers, whether it be spawning in a variety of destructive weapons and vehicles, or simply messing with other players so they couldn’t play normally.

While new updates are making their way onto the PC version of GTA Online, like 'San Andreas Mercenaries', it doesn’t seem like Rockstar is listening to what fans truly want, and would rather push for more subscribers for GTA+ and other microtransactions. It’s unclear what GTA Online could look like in the upcoming Grand Theft Auto VI, but looking at how the current iteration has been handled over the last 10 years, many fans are worried it’ll simply be another cash-grab.
