GTA Online maintenance complete

GTA Online

The scheduled maintenance for Grand Theft Auto Online, the online multiplayer mode for GTA 5, has been completed, Rockstar just announced. You should now be able to login in and begin player -- cheater free (hopefully).

The update, which took less than the estimated 24 hours, was issued as Rockstar takes aim at cheaters in GTA Online. In a post today, the developer explained that a "small number" of players have been generating and distributing "game-breaking amounts" of cash. As a result, today's update should have removed the counterfeit GTA$ (money) from the game's economy. Rockstar also laid out some strict rules and regulations for those who did partake in any sort of cheating; you can read more about there here.

It's unclear if today's update also took care of any other bugs players were experiencing, but we'll be sure to let you know once (or if) Rockstar posts official patch notes.
