Rockstar has said it will continue to support the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of GTA Online with new content after Heists.


Answering questions from players on the official site, the company said it had no plans to drop support for older systems although it admitted there will come a point when it just won’t be technically possible.

Some players have expressed concern that now the game is on PS4, Xbox One and PC soon, support for the older versions released in 2013 would dry up. But time isn’t up for the Xbox 360 and PS3 yet – more content will come after the release of Heists in early 2015.

“Players on PS3 and Xbox 360 can look forward to Online Heists and other updates that are in the works coming soon,” said Rockstar.

“We are incredibly thankful to our original generation of GTAV and GTA Online players on those systems and wish to continue providing content to them for as long as we can.

“Of course, at some point in the future, there may be a point where we reach the limits for the previous generation of consoles as there may be some updates that are only technically possible on the new hardware – but we do hope to continue delivering as many updates as we can for all four consoles for as long as possible.”

The next update for all four versions of Grand Theft Auto Online will be a “Christmas gift” to keep players busy over the festive period.
