Original story (published on November 22, 2022) follows:

FiveM is an incredibly useful mod for roleplaying fans to create and join servers and enjoy the rich world of GTA 5. However, fresh reports suggest that FiveM users might not be having the best time at the moment.

FiveM ( servers down

Many FiveM ( users are currently experiencing problems while trying to play GTA 5 RP as the servers are down or not working.


@FiveM what is going on?? over 5 hours down. fix this.. we want to play

@FiveM Any update on why you guys are having issues and how long they will be resolved? No message nothing is kind of a **** move to everyone who uses you guys.

Affected users have taken to social media platforms like Twitter to express their frustration.

Do note that there has been a recent update in Rockstar Games’ modding policy which could have resulted in the servers going down for the time being.


Some are also suggesting that the servers might have gone down due to a potential DDOS attack. However, none of these claims can be verified at the moment.

Unfortunately, FiveM ( developers have not yet acknowledged the issue with servers going down or not working. We hope they soon find out the root cause behind the problem and fix it at the earliest.

As the developers have not yet acknowledged it, affected users might have to wait indefinitely for a resolution.

We’ll keep an eye on this matter and update this story to reflect noteworthy information.
