If you lost progress or accidentally overwrote your character during the shaky Grand Theft Auto Online launch, I'm afraid that you'll never get them back.
Rockstar confirmed that lost characters and progress are impossible to restore by way of a new Newswire post, but hope that a hefty in-game currency cash injection will be more than enough to apologise.
"For those asking about their lost characters or rank, those will not be able to be restored so we sincerely hope that this cash stimulus we’re giving out this month will help you get back on your feet or to make your new life in Los Santos & Blaine extra sweet," Rockstar explained.
So there, basically. Carl and Matt have been delivering some anarchic video footage direct from Grand Theft Auto Online, pending a full review of GTA V's ambitious multiplayer suite. Check out their antics here.
