Grand Theft Auto 4 is one of a handful of Rockstar games affected by the closure of Gamespy, with various Rockstar Social Club and online multiuplayer features getting the chop. Read on to find out how your favourites have been affected.

GTA 5 is too new to be affected by the closure, but Rockstar is having to make some change to older titles as a result of the closure.

Unfortunately it looks like some games won’t be migrated, with several games losing some or all online features.

Here’s the break down of affected games and modes. Note that if something isn’t listed here, it’s going to be fine – online multiplayer will remain in Red Dead Redemption and GTA 4, for example.
