GTA Online Down For Maintenance

If you can't get a match going in Grand Theft Auto Online, there's a good reason.

Rockstar is performing some maintenance; it started tonight at 9 p.m. EDT and will continue through Thursday, January 16. However, the good news is that GTAO should return to normal within 24 hours, as the developer indicated on its website.

They didn't explain why this maintenance was necessary; perhaps it's just for general stability purposes. GTAO had some significant problems when the multiplayer component for GTAV first launched at the end of October. Rockstar worked hard to fix things, though, and lately, playing online has been relatively painless. Let's just hope that with each new update and maintenance session, GTAO becomes that much more reliable.

Grand Theft Auto V has shipped over 29 million copies to date.

Might have something to do with Red Deads hacking. Maybe they turning off all R* servers to fix it? I don't know.

It's most likely being done for purposes of patching over exploits and hacks. Hackers and modders have been giving themselves money, gifting hundreds of millions and even billions to random players and even putting billion dollar bounties on other players. Rockstar had lost control over their game and the 1.09 patch earlier this week was just to set up the framework for the fixes.
