Tech Update: Gamespy Server Closure Transition is Underway

Posted on April 29 2014, 5:07pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games, Social Club, Support

We want to give everyone a quick update on the actions we’re taking in light of GameSpy and GLU Mobile’s decision to shut down their backend servers this coming May 31. 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 to online-enabled play and your in-game experience. The majority of changes will be in the form of Rockstar Games Social Club services, including stat tracking and leaderboards.
For a full list of the changes, please head to the Rockstar Support page.

    We are currently investigating issues with players receiving "The Rockstar game services are unavailable right now. Please try again later." messages when accessing jobs in GTA Online, as well as errors on the Social Club site.
    Please stay tuned to our GTA Online Support page for the latest status updates at:

    Thanks all for your understanding as we work through this tech update.
    A reminder that for more info, you can check out the FAQ at the Rockstar Support site:

    For any other Support related inquiries about any title, please head to where your issue is likely already listed. If not, you can make a ticket there or hit up with questions.

        @skubigufi This is just... Stupid, sorry but it is. Why would you remove the online gameplay of a game, that's like taking part of the game. I just want "Rate My Ride" again it was so cool. Please put it back.

                          Hey rock so i was thinking that GTA5 should have hunting games like bears or wofls & we should have a bad ass snipers & hydraulics on cars & have a camp house & a way bigger map & when it stars to snow we should be able to drive to North Santos.
                          I really toke some time to do this :) we will have a lot of funny

                            What's up its Swaggmoney gt: PerceptiveEmu xbox360 I just wanted to give a DLC suggestion . I was thinking R* could implement something into Gtao that has to do with jail time which could go also with the heist DLC . What I was thinking is instead of having cops just come "shoot to kill " you every time you commit a crime , they should actually lock you up if they are too close to the online player with that they have a time period set in the jail and prison but also have the option to do a jail break using people on the inside with them or crew mates and or fellow online players and if and after players have successfully broken free they can't get arrested right away but have to hide in the city or fight it out toward the country until you're free using every option at your disposal . As for heist players can get arrested if captured during heist but also have the same option to break out but only once team members have completed or ended the heist

                                  I have had an issue all day today. When I attempt to join any online session I'm told that the cloud servers are unable to load my save. If you could please let me know if it is something I am missing or if it is something on your side.

                                    @geedunk24 This is not a large issue and Rockstar has done an amazing job at making such a nice open world game. So please do not be so immature by saying that they are the worst thing in the world and that they do not know how to make a video game at every little thing that happens.

                                    @geedunk24 My main crew is actually Kamikaze Drifters I just created this new one a couple hours ago. Sorry for the misunderstanding though, also if you are wanting to learn english a little better i will be willing to teach you to type it correctly.
