The Rockstar Social Club branding appears to have been removed from the studio's official website, with the company renaming its online membership system ahead of the December reveal of Grand Theft Auto 6.

The details:

  • As reported by PC Gamer, X user, and unofficial Rockstar news reporter @videotechuk_ noticed that the company appears to be discontinuing the Social Club brand. The user shared a before and after comparison of messages seen on Rockstar's website, showing all references to the service have been removed. The platform's branding appears to be changing to the more simple "Rockstar Games Platform."

  • Rockstar has not officially announced any changes to Social Club, and some references to the service can still be found across the company's website, including the URL for the Social Club landing page. It also appears that the functions of Social Club have not changed, which means that GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 players who use its features can continue to do so for the time being.

  • Beginning with the console releases of GTA 4, Social Club has allowed players to add friends, join groups called "Crews," and check in-game stats, leaderboards, and events. Although there was a significant push for the service around the release of GTA V, it has since taken a back seat, and Rockstar is likely attempting to refresh everything for the upcoming GTA 6.
