Rockstar is shutting down online services for GTA Online on PS3 and Xbox 360 on December 16.
Along with shutting down the servers for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of GTA Online in December, website stat tracking, online multiplayer, and leaderboards for the same versions of Max Payne 3 will also go offline on September 16.
You’ll still be able to buy PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Shark Cards for GTA Online until September 15th. However, you won’t be able to get a refund or transfer your digital currency or virtual items to another platform.
PS3 and Xbox 360 GTA Online players can no longer transfer their character data or progress to another platform either. When the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Grand Theft Auto V arrived, players were initially able to port their GTA Online progress to the newer consoles. Rockstar ended support for those transfers in 2017.
The publisher says it will “continue to move forward with updates and support” for the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of GTA Online. In November, it’ll release versions of GTA V and GTA Online optimized for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. PS5 owners will get free access to GTA Online for three months. It’s not yet clear whether PS4 and Xbox One owners will be able to transfer GTA Online data to the upcoming versions.
GTA 5 launched on PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 17th, 2013. The game was released on PS4 and Xbox One the following year in November.
