Grand Theft Auto Online bug was driving players out of nightclubs
Grand Theft Auto Online players notice a bug that prevents them from accessing or removing them from the game to enter nightclubs.
Rockstar Games has added nightclubs to Grand Theft Auto Online in the summer of 2018, but players recently encountered a strange bug with locations. According to various GTA Online fans, a bug was chasing them from random nightclubs.
Twitter user Tez2 noted that GTA Online players were accidentally kicked out of the game right after visiting nightclubs. Rockstar Games released a background update intended to prevent players from using a duplicate exploit with a recent update for Grand Theft Auto Online. This update apparently failed due to a bug that resulted in legitimate players being punished when visiting their nightclubs.
Rockstar Games almost immediately reversed the new GTA Online update to fix the bug that unintentionally hits legitimate players. Instead of just targeting struggling players in nightclubs, this new update generally targeted players entering nightclubs regardless of their legitimacy. GTA Online players were kicked back to the lobby just for visiting a nightclub before the update was canceled and they couldn’t appear at the location either.
Grand Theft Auto Online nightclubs are similar to the casino in that it functions as a place where players can meet and socialize, as well as a place to earn in-game money. Nightclubs can be purchased as the player’s accommodation in GTA Online, so it goes without saying that some of the players kicked out would be so frustrated. These players should no longer experience this nightclub bug due to the update being canceled.
Because this GTA Online the update caused some issues and therefore was removed, the duplicate issue in nightclubs remains in GTA Online. Grand Theft Auto Online players are apparently able to specifically duplicate items in nightclub garages. The update was also expected to resolve known issues with Test Track and Auto Shop.
Grand Theft Auto Online fans have discovered different ways to exploit the game to profit from it, and this in-depth update was an attempt by Rockstar to curb some of that behavior. Beyond fixing this disco duplication issue, Rockstar Games has a few more GTA Online exploits to correct in order to maintain a balanced experience. Removing this update may cause a new influx of GTA Online players exploiting the nightclub glitch.
Rockstar Games is probably working on adjustments to the background update which was canceled due to the GTA Online nightclub glitch. Due to how quickly this update was rolled back, Rockstar is likely aware of the issues it presented. It is currently unclear when the background update will be fixed or if it will be replaced with a new one that fixes the duplication issue in nightclubs.
Grand Theft Auto Online is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S.
