Wave of GTA Online Account Restrictions: Bans or Hackers?


Today, fans discovered a sudden wave of GTA Online PC players unable to log into their accounts. This led people to believe that Rockstar might be cracking down on the hackers and banning players who have cheated online.

However, the majority of people affected seem confused by what they could have done to be banned. Rockstar’s response suggest something else is at work:

“Sorry to hear that you are having a problem logging into GTAV for PC. We investigated your account and determined that GTAV login access was suspended because your Social Club login credentials were shared across a large number of computers. Please note that sharing your login credentials with others is a violation of the EULA and can result in permanent termination of your Social Club account and associated Rockstar Games.”

This could mean that the affected players play GTA Online from multiple PCs, but some people worry it means these accounts have been hacked and accessed from other locations.

Whatever it is, it doesn’t look as good as PC players tired of the GTA Online hackers first hoped. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
