The game alone features the most dangerous streets but currently, players of Grand Theft Auto Online have a new threat coming their way. The report said that they might lose millions of in-game currency in their possession due to this newly discovered issue.
Game Rant reported that a recent exploit on both PC and last generation console versions of Grand Theft Auto plagued the community. It is said that the glitch allows script users to instantly rank themselves or others up. In addition, they steal an unlimited amount of in-game cash from those who earned them the hard way.
Apparently, Rockstar Games is aware of this issue and already set up a support page for those affected players. As of now, there is no real fix that has been seen online. Several players currently chose to stay offline until all things are sorted out since losing billions of money in that instant could be frustrating for the most of them. On top of that, the instant leveling might lead to some legit players potentially banned by Rockstar Games if it appears that they level themselves up.
Meanwhile, on some occasion, Rockstar Games has done several hilarious fixes for players exploiting in-game glitches but this recent case could possibly lead to full bans. One of the core features of Grand Theft Auto Online is the digital economy system where Rockstar Games earned over half a billion dollars since the game officially launched. With this new exploit, it is expected that the studio should make haste attending to the concerns since it might lead to a massive decline in its player pool.
It would be interesting to know how Rockstar Games will deal with this kind of situation since there are many high-level legit players nowadays. This gives the studio a hard time identifying who's clean and who's not.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is currently available on PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
