Later, on December 16, 2021, the servers of GTA Online will be shut down. With this, Rockstar Games Social Club will be out of service as well.
Some Bad News
Sadly, you can’t transfer your GTA Online characters, progress, and other assets from Xbox 360 and/or PlayStation 3 to another console or PC. Along with that, there is no refund for Shark Cards. Therefore, when the server gets out of service, everything will be lost. This is going to be an end of an era for all GTA lovers.
Some Good News
However, you will be able to play the single-player stories of these games without any issues. Just the online components and gaming won’t be accessible to anyone and everything else will remain the same.
