April 7, 2022

Transitioning to a new generation of consoles always has its share of challenges and issues that crop up in the months after release.

Grand Theft Auto 5 and GTA Online launched recently on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, and are no exception.

Players have been getting inexplicable ban messages, and Rockstar chimed in.

The issue presents itself in some cases when players try loading into GTA Online straight from story mode.

Doing so might present you with a warning screen stating that you have been permanently banned.

Rockstar Games has, in the wake of a lot of noise online about the issue, posted an official FAQ entry about the bug.

Rockstar confirmed that you are not actually banned in this case, and they are working on a fix.
