Holy moly, this is mental! You may recall a little while back we reported on a GTA Online fan fix which, despite being detailed in ridiculously complicated language, effectively reducing the title’s infamous loading times on PC. Rockstar has now acknowledged the alteration – and will be implementing it in a future update!
“After a thorough investigation, we can confirm that player t0st did, in fact, reveal an aspect of the game code related to load times for the PC version of GTA Online that could be improved,” the label told PC Gamer. “As a result of these investigations, we have made some changes that will be implemented in a forthcoming title update.”
Unfortunately, it’s not clear whether this update will also improve the PlayStation 4 version as well, but we’ve got our fingers crossed. Rockstar, for the record, did say it had contacted the original programmer who figured out this fix, and “would like to thank him again for his efforts”. As it turns out, he got paid $10,000 for the discovery – a nice little windfall.
