Rockstar announced on twitter that it’s just a rumor and that the game supports 16 players.
If this is true can someone please tell me why you need the Xbox One/PS4??? It is being reported by CinemaBlend and CVG that GTA Online has been bumped up to support 32 players. This is in the free roam mode, deathmatch, team deathmatch, cops and crocks, races, and possibly more. Rockstar has gone with the “no comment” approach, but good LAWD!!! I was very happy with 16 players, but 32 is pure madnessawesomegreat sauce.
I’ll let you know if anything changes on this matter!
This player count only confirms how few friends I have….lol
