Fans of GTA Online are reporting that a handful of the game’s co-op missions are now unavailable to play due to a bug that was introduced alongside this week’s title update. In a message posted to their official support website, Rockstar Games has since confirmed the issue and reassured players that the missing jobs have not been purposefully removed from the game. The developer revealed that they are currently investigating the problems in order to find the cause of the bug so they can make the affected missions playable within GTA Online once more.
“We have received reports of missing Contact Missions in GTA Online, and we are looking into this issue now. These Missions were not removed intentionally.”
It appears that the bug has only affected a handful of the co-op story missions found in GTA Online. So far, the issue doesn’t seem to extend to any of the game’s competitive modes. So those wanting to challenge other players to deathmatch-style activities should not experience any problems.
Rockstar Games has compiled a list of confirmed missions that were inadvertently removed from Grand Theft Auto V‘s online playlists following the launch of the Freemode Events Update earlier this week. Until the issue is resolved, users likely won’t be able to play any of the following co-op jobs.
- Rooftop Rumble
- Show Me the Money
- A Titan of a Job
- Hack and Dash
- Lost My Mind
- Out of Harmony
Since it isn’t clear exactly what caused the above missions to be removed from GTA Online, Rockstar Games doesn’t know how long the issue should take to resolve. However, the developer is trying to remove the bug as soon as possible.
While handful of missions were mistakenly removed from GTA Online this week, the latest title update for the game fortunately gave players access to lots of new content to enjoy in its place. The main addition of the new patch introduced Freemode Events to the open online lobbies of Grand Theft Auto V.
Rockstar Games detailed that Freemode Events will periodically invite players to participate in a variety of different free-roam activities whenever playing the GTA Online while not engaged on a specific mission or multiplayer match. This allows users to get more enjoyment out of the title’s open world.
“Freemode Events are launched every 12 minutes from the end of the last Event. On occasions where there are not enough available players in session to launch any Event, launching may take a little longer. Once more players have joined, the Events will continue to launch.”
To encourage players to try out GTA Online‘s Freemode Events, Rockstar Games is offering a bonus to gamers who can successfully complete some of the new activities before the end of this Sunday. As explained by the Inquisitr, anyone that finishes any five Freemode Events this week will receive an exclusive t-shirt for their online character as well as a bonus payout of $50,000 to spend in the game.
Do you consider any of the missing jobs to be one of your favorite missions in GTA Online?
