Rockstar titles Red Dead RedemptionGrand Theft Auto IV, and Max Payne 3 will all be affected by the GameSpy server shutdown on May 31. However, the developer is working to transition these titles to ensure that online play remains unaffected.

“While Grand Theft Auto V is unaffected, our teams are currently working to patch specific older titles to keep the transition as smooth as possible and minimize the impact on online-enabled play and your in-game experience,” Rockstar wrote on its support page. “The majority of changes will be in the form of Rockstar Social Club services, including stat tracking and leaderboards.

“Unfortunately, it will be necessary to bid farewell to certain online features in older games. We appreciate the support and continued enthusiasm for the legacy Rockstar Games catalogue, and sincerely apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused.”

Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Max Payne 3 will all see their online multiplayer components unaffected by the shutdown. However, access to leaderboards, Social Club  stat tracking, and in-game Social Club services will all be removed. The PlayStation 3 version of Midnight Club Los Angeles will see its online multiplayer component removed, while other platforms will retain access.

Other titles such as Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown WarsBeaterator, and Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition will see all online gameplay and systems removed.
