Rockstar Games Remain Offline

Yesterday's launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has been a bit of disaster. A tweet from Rockstar Support acknowledges that the services for the Rockstar Games Launcher and supported titles "are temporarily offline for maintenance." That was yesterday afternoon, but that temporary outage persists. This doesn't just prevent players from playing the newly released remakes, but other Rockstar Games as well. As of this time, the new GTA Trilogy bundle is no longer for sale for Windows on the Rockstar Store. A tweet from the wee hours this morning says work at getting things restored continues, thanking players for their patience and understanding. At this point there's no explanation of what is causing the problem.

This is nothing new, and publishers/developers have not learnt any lessons.

Some people will remember back when Half-Life 2/TF2 was released, it required a Steam account to be activated (which incidentally, coincided with the release of Steam platform). This caused a lot of displeasure from gamers who were used to just punching in the CD Key, installing the game, and away they went.

This was a hotly anticipated game at the time.

"What if servers are down? How do I play?", they asked.

"You can still play offline - it only requires a single log-in to activate", said Valve.

Of course, the day of release, the Steam servers were overloaded, and people who purchased the game were unable to activate it, and therefor play it.

I didn't get to play my new copy of HL2 for TWO DAYS because the servers were down.
