Further patch due this week.

Rockstar has admitted that any characters lost during Grand Theft Auto Online's recent launch issues cannot be recovered.

So too with any missing player ranks - these are similarly gone forever.

A Rockstar spokesperson confirmed the losses in an update to the recent GTA Online blog post which announced an in-game cash stimulus of $500,000 for players as an apology for the game's teething problems.

"For those asking about their lost characters or rank, those will not be able to be restored," a Rockstar spokesperson wrote. "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."

There should be no future instances of character deletion, at least. Rockstar fixed the game's character-culling glitches in a patch issued last week for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Another title update is due this week to sort the continuing disappearances of vehicles.

"For those that are still having any technical issues, as mentioned above there is a title update coming next week that will include more fixes including the vehicle loss one," Rockstar concluded. "We will remain committed to continuing to fine-tune the game to address any and all issues to get GTA Online running as smooth as possible.

No, I cant bring myself to do a cloudy pun.

Had to expect issues with the sheer volume they got from day 1. Guess we're now gonna get 20 if the same vehicle cluttering up the place :)
