This particular issue was causing trouble for gamers who would launch the game using the Rockstar Games Launcher on systems like Windows 11 21H2. Players would have to deal with this issue after getting the KB5023774 March 2023 optional preview update installed. Microsoft, via the Windows health dashboard, confirmed this.
When players would hit the ‘Play’ button and try to open the game using the Rockstar Games Launcher, they would see the ‘Loading’ message appearing on the screen but eventually, the game would not launch. After a while, they will see the ‘Play’ option reappearing again. This left the players scratching their heads and wondering what the issue is.
Thankfully, the issue has been fixed by Rockstar Games. The gaming publisher released the Launcher version 22.214.171.1248 recently and now, players will not face any issues while launching the game. The update notes also confirm the fact that certain improvements have been made to ensure the Rockstar Games Launcher works in a stable manner from this point.
