Rockstar Games has officially started a countdown for the end of GTA Online on old-gen consoles. The services will cease for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on December 16th, 2021.
As we continue to move forward with updates and support for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto Online — as well as prepare for this Fall's launches of the new expanded and enhanced versions of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S — the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of GTA Online, including website stat tracking via the Rockstar Games Social Club, will officially be shutting down on December 16, 2021. In addition, Shark Cash Cards for GTA Online will no longer be sold for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions after September 15, 2021.
We’d like to thank the GTA Online community for their continued support, and look forward to seeing players continue their journey in Los Santos with us on new platforms.
Social Club stat tracking will also end, as well as for Max Payne 3 and LA Noire on PS3 and XB360. Single player content will not be affected for any of the preceding titles.

It’s time to raise the stakes higher than ever before. You’ve broken a convicted spy out of Bolingbroke Penitentiary. You’ve saved the world from an egomaniacal tech billionaire. And you’ve beaten the odds to drain a casino of its cash. This time, you’re taking on an entire island.
Prepare to infiltrate the remote island compound of the world’s most notorious drug dealer in Grand Theft Auto Online’s biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition yet: The Cayo Perico Heist.
It’s up to you to find a way to breach Cayo Perico, one of the most secure private islands in the entire world, evade or neutralize the heavily armed security forces stationed there, and escape with valuable evidence along with as much art, gold and drug money as you can carry.
Choose your tools. Choose your approach. Choose your crew – or even go it entirely alone. Just make it back to Los Santos in one piece.
The Cayo Perico Heist is the biggest GTA Online adventure ever, introducing an all-new exotic Heist location, with a brand-new approach to Heist design that features the ability to play everything solo or with up to three other players. Plus you can acquire new vehicles and tactical weapons, experience new social spaces to dance and party in with your friends, and new world-class guest DJs, and listen to new radio stations with over 100 new songs. Oh, and a very large, very versatile, and very heavily armed submarine HQ with plenty of other surprises.
Stay tuned for more details as you prepare for The Cayo Perico Heist!

Grand Theft Auto V will be released on the PlayStation 5 console in the second half of 2021. Rockstar Games mentions the 7-year-old title will be released on "next generation consoles"
so it will more than likely be available on the Xbox counterpart when that releases as well. The game is being upgraded to take advantage of the new systems including graphics and controls.
Of course GTA Online will accompany GTA V. Rockstar promises plenty of more content to be added in the future for PC and the next generation consoles.
PlayStation Plus members on PlayStation 4 will get GTA$1,000,000 (deposited into their in-game Maze Bank account within 72 hours of log-in) each month they play GTA Online until the launch of GTA Online on PlayStation 5 too!

Pick yours up at Southern San Andreas Super Autos today.
SNOWFALL COMES TO SOUTHERN SAN ANDREAS
As you peek out of the window of your Executive Office this morning, you'll notice something markedly different about the landscape. An overnight snowstorm has painted Southern San Andreas with a fresh, thick coat of the white stuff and the experts predict it'll be sticking around for the next few days.

The stench of spiked egg nog stained on your Clubhouse floor and drunken Santas stumbling down Vinewood Boulevard can only signify one thing: the Festive Surprise 2017 Event has hit Los Santos and Blaine County. With Weazel News’ crack team of weathermen already calling for a frosty forecast this coming weekend, new festive gear along with all of your old favorites return to the shops of Southern San Andreas. Send sparks through the night with the Firework Launcher as you stomp through a crimson-coated winter wonderland in your favorite Elf mask, pay a visit to your favorite 247 Supermarket in a Mirthful Gingerbread Hockey mask or show your head-to-toe spirit in a festive albeit slightly creepy Reindeer Bodysuit. Plus keep an eye out for a few free unlocks in the coming days including new Krampus masks gifts starting on Christmas Eve. Because in this town, only the naughty get their stockings stuffed.
NOW AVAILABLE: UBERMACHT SENTINEL CLASSIC
Remember when a road legal coupe could moonlight as a performance rally car and no one batted an eye? Back before power windows and satellite radio, when it was just you, the car and the road. The Ubermacht Sentinel Classic is the no-nonsense, lightweight bucket of speed you've been dreaming about and it's here to rocket your ass back to the glory days. Pick up yours today, exclusively from Southern San Andreas Super Autos.
OCCUPY MODE OUT NOW
Land is the most valuable asset of them all and you can't afford to let any wannabe invaders encroach upon yours. Occupy is the latest addition to GTA Online, where victory is obtained by securing and holding capture zones across the map and fending off the circling vultures on the other team. It's also pretty important to know what you're doing with a flying attack bike, but don't get distracted; whichever team holds more zones will gain points faster and the first team to hit the target score wins the round. Time to see who really runs this town. Jump into Occupy now and earn Double GTA$ & RP through January 8th.
Snow may be in the forecast but that doesn't mean you can't make it rain. Luckily for you, we're discounting a suite of business properties and vehicles to make sure you get the most bang for your buck.
