I don't know what just happened, but I know this.

I just tried to join an Online game. To my surprise I got in, but what I'm angry about is that before (first time joining Online), I had a 82% completion in Single-player, but for some reason, all my saves got reverted to beginning Franklin.

What do I do? Is there any fix? Did the online feature just wipe out my saves?

  • Have you tried loading an earlier save, like a manual quicksave?

  • Might sound stupid but maybe contact Rockstar? They could have a answer.

  • @Nolonar Tried doing that, it seems all my saves got reverted to the beginning. I tried looking through game files, but all my save files are now 0% completion. This is really, really frustrating.

  • My friend just went through the same thing. With Multi-player coming out today (or came out) some accounts have been wiped. He found a site though where it said that they would fix this in a hidden update next week. Commented Oct 2, 2013 at 22:52

This was a bug in GTA online that caused Story Mode save files to become corrupted when switching from Online to Story. There has been a title update to fix this.

It won't restore your character, but Rockstar is giving everyone who played online during the age of strife(October) $500,000 in in-game cash for their online characters
