Gta Online Rockstar is shutting down for sony ps3 and microsoft xbox 360

The online multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto V, will no longer be accessible starting December 16th, 2021. Website stat tracking for GTA Online will cease operation on December 16th, 2021. Shark Cash Cards, which unlock the in-game currency for GTA Online, will no longer be purchasable on these consoles after September 15th, 2021.

The company said in a press release that shutting down GTA Online for these consoles will “have no impact on access to, or progress within, the Grand Theft Auto V story mode.” You simply won’t be able to go online with the game.

It speaks to the popularity of GTA Online and the massive install base of both PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles that Rockstar Games kept the lights on, so to speak, for so long. These consoles saw the initial release of Grand Theft Auto V almost eight years ago.
