Lost game progress addressed in new GTA Online patch

Rockstar has released a new GTA 5 (opens in new tab) patch designed to fix a number of issues causing players to lose game progress in GTA Online (opens in new tab). Since the online game’s launch on October 1, many users have reported characters, items, apartments, cars and in-game money vanishing without reason, but the latest title update should set things right for most players.

Rockstar says the patch “will resolve the cause of players losing their gameplay progress except for some specific instances where players purchase a vehicle and the save does not occur due to a cloud save failure”. A fix for that issue is still being worked on.
