Rockstar Games has revealed the effect that the upcoming closure of GameSpy servers will have on its library of Xbox 360 and PS3 games, with Grand Theft Auto V being the only title in the company's back catalogue completely unaffected by the change.

"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."

The full list of changes that'll occur following the GameSpy shutdown on May 31st can be found below, with Rockstar Social Club stats and leaderboards to be disabled in the likes of Red Dead Redemption, GTA IV and Midnight Club Los Angeles.
