It’s been near­ly eight years since Rock­star’s pop­u­lar GTA Online start­ed up on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Well, it’s final­ly shut­ting down on these plat­forms. Start­ing on Decem­ber 16, 2021, play­ers will no longer be able to access their GTA Online char­ac­ters on these consoles.

If you’ve been play­ing GTA Online on an Xbox 360 or PS3 exclu­sive­ly, this news might be a big issue for you, as there is no way to trans­fer your char­ac­ter to mod­ern plat­forms. In a post that details the shut­down, Rock­star said, “There is no fea­ture avail­able to trans­fer char­ac­ter data or progress from those plat­forms. All web­site stat track­ing for PlaySta­tion 3 and Xbox 360 via the Rock­star Games Social Club will also be removed.”

Play­ers who have spent cash on shark cards for their Xbox 360 or PS3 won’t be able to get refunds. Vir­tu­al cur­ren­cy and vir­tu­al goods pur­chas­es are plat­form-spe­cif­ic and can­not be refund­ed or trans­ferred,” as clar­i­fied by Rockstar.

Along with the online ser­vices for GTA V, Rock­star will also be slash­ing online sup­port for L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3 on the Xbox 360 and PS3. This means the mul­ti­play­er for Max Payne 3 will be tak­en offline. But for both, access to “web­site stat track­ing via the Rock­star Games Social Club” will no longer be avail­able. These fea­tures will be gone on Sep­tem­ber 16, 2021.

While the online ser­vices for these three titles are being tak­en down, their sin­gle-play­er will be unaffected. 

In oth­er GTA Online news, the game will be get­ting a full stand­alone release lat­er this year. There is also going to be a next-gen port arriv­ing to the Xbox Series X|S and PlaySta­tion 5 in Novem­ber of this year.
