GTA Online PS3 & Xbox 360 Servers To Shut Down Later This Year

Rockstar Games has announced that they will shut down the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Grand Theft Auto Online on 16 December 2021.

Meanwhile, online services for L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3 on PS3 and Xbox 360 will shut down on 16 September 2021.

It’s not a coincidence that this is being announced now, considering that it was only last month that Rockstar Games announced that GTA V will be coming to the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on 11 November 2021, as well as a standalone edition of GTA Online.

Check out the details below via Rockstar Games:
