According to Reddit, the glitch does appear offline users online, something that makes it difficult to manage the experience in multiplayer because of the difficulty to take part in online sessions or invite friends to their own.

Sony has not said anything about it. We are confident that the developers of the Japanese companies are working on the solution of this issue, therefore we look forward to new information about it.
