Grand Theft Auto Online class action lawsuit dismissed

A U.S. District Court in California has thrown out a class action lawsuit filed against Take-Two and Rockstar Games over the delayed launch of Grand Theft Auto Online.

The plaintiffs claimed that Rockstar and Take-Two had engaged in “unlawful,” “unfair,” and “fraudulent” practices after advertising GTA V as having an online component, which didn’t actually release alongside the game.

Judge Virginia A. Phillips granted a motion to dismiss the suit as the game’s packaging did not specifically state that GTA Online would be available “immediately” and that a disclaimer on the box also stated that online content ”may not be available to all users.”
