So all is fair in the end, while some people will have a few days advantage, that can be made up over the coming months. Looking at what Rockstar have done with GTAV and how new features have been released 5 years after its release. If you consider this game has a potential 5 year life span, then 4 days head start doesn’t seem too bad.
Staggering the release date with different bunches of players is going to allow Rockstar to monitor the servers. this will allow them to take action to prevent issues and improve the game quality for all players.
If you own the Ultimate edition on XBOX ONE then you may be experiencing some issues getting access. Rockstar Support just tweeted out that this issue has been resolved and you need to restart your console and it should be gone. Make sure it is a hard restart. read the tweet below.
