Rockstar Games has revealed the effect that the upcoming closure of GameSpy servers will have on its library of Xbox 360 and PS3 games.
"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," Rockstar writes on its support page. "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."
Red Dead Redemption / RDR Game of the Year Edition / RDR Undead Nightmare
- Online multiplayer gameplay: Unaffected
- Social Club website stat tracking and leaderboards: Removed
- In-game Social Club services: Removed
- In-game multiplayer leaderboards: Removed for PlayStation 3 version only
Let's hope that by MP gameplay being "unaffected" they don't mean they plan on leaving the servers in the buggy state they're in now.
