Rockstar Games ha announced via blog support that several of its previous generation games and online modes will pass away. Among the games that will see their online functions removed are GTA Online, Max Payne 3 and LA Noire, Rockstar also clarified that the story mode will not receive more modifications and that they will not be affected by the closure of the servers.
The game most affected by this decision is GTA V whose online mode is one of the most popular today, what happens is that in theory most of the players are on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so the Rockstar Games’ decision would be logical. And it is that it does not make sense to maintain the servers of a version that no longer gives revenue.
Goodbye to Los Santos
The main problem is that in the FAQ they clarify that all progress will be lost, which is really unfortunate. GTA Online has been available for eight years on PS3 and Xbox 360, many people played there for several years so it would be logical to be able to transfer the progress to other platforms. Rockstar claims that this will not be possible, so all logs will disappear.
Neither will digital products that were bought in the last days and in fact stop being sold from September 16 on both PS3 and Xbox 360 will be refundable. For its part, the definitive closure of the servers will be on December 16, for what Rockstar has put us on notice with six months in advance.
On the same day the other games will lose their online functions, although these have much less content than GTA Online, so there will be fewer problems when it comes to accepting this news from their players.
GTA Online is also available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S where progress is transferable.
