Rockstar Warns Against Creating New GTA Online Characters in Missing Character Slots

Rockstar has warned players who are missing characters in Grand Theft Auto Online not to create a new character in the same slot as it may lead to them overwriting the missing character.

If players see an empty slot where their character should be then they should back out to story mode and try re-entering via the in-game menu. If the message “The Rockstar Cloud Servers Are Unavailable” appears do not press “retry” or proceed online with saving disabled.

If you have previously created a character but see an empty character selection screen when entering GTA Online, please back out to GTAV Story Mode and try re-entering GTA Online through the pause menu (repeat or wait until Rockstar cloud servers are back up). Do not create a new character in the empty slot where your character should be,” the developer wrote on its support page.

“If you receive the message ‘The Rockstar Cloud Servers Are Unavailable’, please return to GTAV Story Mode and follow the steps above.  Please do not press “Retry” on the message and do not proceed online with saving disabled, as this may lead to overwriting your existing character.”

The developer added that it is currently working on a permanent fix for the missing character bug.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
