Rockstar Games’ Online Multiplayer To Be Affected Due To GameSpy Shutdown

The GameSpy servers will be shutting down fully on May 31st with a lot of games hosted on the servers affected, including a number of Rockstar titles. This shutdown mainly affects the older library of games from the developer, while Grand Theft Auto V will remain unaffected. Some of the big changes include the removal of some Social Club support for games like Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto IV, while online multiplayer for Midnight Club Los Angeles on PS3 is removed. All online multiplayer for Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition will also be shutdown.
