Effect of GameSpy Closure on Past Rockstar Titles

Question: I read that GameSpy is closing. How will this affect past Rockstar Games titles?

Answer: GameSpy's hosted services for Rockstar Games titles will no longer be provided as of June 10, 2014.  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 on online-enabled play and your in-game experience. The majority of changes will be in the form of Rockstar Social Club services, including stat tracking and leaderboards. Unfortunately, it will be necessary to bid farewell to certain online features in older games. We appreciate the support and continued enthusiasm for the legacy Rockstar Games catalogue, and sincerely apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused.

Below, you can find a list of affected titles and what will be changing in-game by June 10, 2014:
