As someone once said, all good things must come to an end. Today Rockstar games let PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers know that their Grand Theft Auto Online journey will come to an end this December.
To make matters worse, there is no way to transfer your PS3 character to the last-gen (PS4) or to current-gen when it releases on the PS5.
Here are the official answers to all of your burning questions to whomever of you still plays GTA Online via your PS3:
GTA Online on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
- September 16, 2021
- PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Shark Cards for GTA Online no longer sold.
- December 16, 2021
- GTA Online services for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, including website stat tracking via the Rockstar Games Social Club no longer available.
- GTAV Story Mode for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 not impacted.
Will I be able to transfer my progress from GTA Online on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 to current console generations before it is shut down on December 16, 2021?
No, this is not possible. There is no feature available to transfer character data or progress from those platforms. All website stat tracking for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 via the Rockstar Games Social Club will also be removed.
Can I get a refund for Shark Card purchases for GTA Online on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 or transfer the balance to current console generations?
Virtual currency and virtual goods purchases are platform-specific and cannot be refunded or transferred. Please see our End User License Agreement for additional details.
On another sad note, online functionality for L.A. Noire and Max Payne for both will end on September 16th. Offline will not be impacted whatsoever.
This one goes to all the GTA Online characters who will no longer exist this Fall, Brah!
