Well in true fashion, being as sensible they are, Rockstar first took a moment to describe the possible perils that lie for gamers before they headed of explaining what to expect from GTA Online over the future. Rockstar warned fans to be wary of the issues that will be evident as GTA Online goes live,

Even in GTAV Story Mode, some of you may have seen a few odd and even amusing little glitches out there last week. This sort of thing is inevitable in a massive open-world game and there’ll surely be lots more unexpected oddities like this in the Online world – rest assured we’ll be monitoring and actively doing all we can to smooth such things out as they happen, but we need your help to find them, as well as your feedback to help fine tune all of the game's systems so everything is perfectly balanced.”
Other than reiterating that up to 16 players will be able numerous activities together in GTA Online (open world exploration, watch movies, go mountain biking, take part in jobs, races and sports), Rockstar mentioned that players will also be able to create their very own characters using the the character creator, “then earn some cash and spend it getting dressed for success.
