Well, we all pretty much knew that it was just a matter of time until this day would finally come, so you might want to start thinking about an upgrade if you’re serious about continuing.

We’re talking about the fact that Rockstar Games gave Grand Theft Auto Online servers an end-of-lifetime warning for outdated platforms such as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Therefore, fans that are still enjoying the game on the above-mentioned consoles, will no longer be able to connect to Online starting with the 16th of December, 2021.

No more GTA Online for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

The studio responsible for the franchise, Rockstar Games, previously confirmed that the servers on the oldest two platforms supporting GTA Online will go dark before the year is out back in the summer.

Not that big of a deal, some would say, considering that the game is almost pretty much dead already, so all-in-all not that big of a loss.

It was a pretty clear move, seeing how GTA Online stopped getting new content after Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

That was also the last Online update that also added single-player content to the game, and only support updates were provided for these versions of the title.

Understandable, seeing how the largest percentage of players still invested in GTA Online is playing from PCs or PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and up.

Everybody is anxiously waiting for the release of the sequel, the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 6. However, things are looking too bright, as developers had to further delay their reveal.
