GTA Online's Content Creator has been taken offline by developer Rockstar Games after a glitch that allowed players to make infinite money was noticed. The Content Creator was a recent feature that was introduced in the online multiplayer version of the hugely popular and successful video game, GTA 5.
Infinite Money Glitch pushes Content Creator offline.
With the help of the infinite money glitch, players were able to get easy access to infinite money for buying vehicles, upgrades, apartments, and clothes, Attack of the Fanboy reported. (See Also: GTA 5 Online: High Life Update 1.13 Release Date; Metal Gear Solid 5 Trailer Recreated)
Rockstar reportedly had no other way but to take the Content Creator offline as it was directly linked to the exploit. Rockstar Games has a strict policy on cheating in-game but for players, making the extra money is always helpful with the progress as money trickles very slowly in GTA Online.
"Access to the GTA Online Creator has been temporarily disabled to stop the spread of a new exploit... We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to make the Creator available again as soon as possible," said a post on Rockstar's Support page.
Rockstar has promised that the Content Creator tool will be online "soon." Content Creator is a feature in GTA Online that allows players to create their own custom maps in Race, Deathmatches and Capture modes. These maps have to be later put through testing and can be published as a Job. Rockstar might verify the Job created by the players and publishes the list on Rockstar Newswire. The Content Creator was launched on 12 December, 2013.
