GTA 5 and its online offshoot GTA Online are hard to kill. But even the longest-lived games will eventually show signs of wear and tear. As Rockstar announces, GTA Online support for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be canceled without replacement.

It was one of the biggest flagship titles at the end of the console cycle

Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 were already around eight years old in 2013, but a year before the successor consoles were launched, they were still being supplied with the then top title GTA 5 and then also with GTA Online. Now, around eight years later, it is clear that the last Grand Theft Auto chapter has begun, at least on this older generation of consoles. As announced by Rockstar Games, GTA Online for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be « officially retired on December 16, 2021 ».

As the developers point out, this change will only affect GTA Online for PS3 and Xbox 360, the story mode of Grand Theft Auto V and all game progress there will remain unaffected by the change on the old consoles as well. For GTA Online users, however, the following applies: As of the December 16th deadline, all statistical recordings in the Rockstar Games Social Club will also be discontinued. Last but not least, the microtransaction system for the two classic consoles will be terminated prematurely: « In addition, Shark CashCards for GTA Online on PS3 and Xbox 360 will no longer be sold after August 15, 2021, » says Rockstar. How you imagine the future for users is of course clear. They should be able to play GTA in all its forms on new hardware as soon as possible: « We would like to thank the GTA Online community for their continued support and we look forward to seeing players continue their journey in Los Santos on the new platforms, » ​​according to the developers.

Two other titles were also affected

In addition to GTA Online, Rockstar is taking the opportunity to announce adjustments for other titles as well. Also on December 16, 2021, features will be discontinued for the following two PS3 and Xbox 360 titles:

  • Stat tracking, online multiplayer and leaderboards for Max Payne 3
  • Stats record for LA Noire
