The Rockstar update for Grand Theft Auto 4 corrupted player saves
On May 28th, Rockstar had to rush down the Grand Theft Auto 4 update. This was due to a spate of complaints from users claiming the game was corrupted. At first glance, the problem appeared after installing the update of about 400 MB that the company released to rehabilitate classic game features.
Earlier this year, GTA 4 had already been removed from Steam for seemingly no reason, which deterred many users as it was still one of the best-selling games on the platform. Rockstar later announced that this was due to issues with the Games for Windows Live platform. According to the statement, the platform could not generate any more access keys, so they restarted the game with some modifications.
Therefore, since the beginning of the year, the company has been working to bring the game back to its good form. Several game options, like classic radios, needed to be restored and that was the purpose of this update. But it looks like it didn’t work out very well.
Realizing the complaints, the company acted quickly, restoring the previous version of the game and showing that the update hadn’t actually corrupted the game files. The company commented on the case:
“An issue was introduced in the 28th update that temporarily made it appear that save files were corrupted and the update rolled back. The game should now read the save files correctly and we will redeploy the update as soon as possible.”
The game Grand Theft Auto 4 was released in 2008 and was a huge success. It is currently available for Playstation 3, Xbox One and PC.
