Rockstar Discusses Why GTA Online Freemode Events Isn’t On Xbox 360 and PS3

Following the announcement that GTA Online ‘Freemode Events’ update isn’t going to release on last-gen consoles i.e. Xbox 360 and Playstation 3; the developer has clarified its stance on the decision.

In a blogpost on Rockstar Newswire; the company stated that the ‘Freemode Events’ update is only possible on current-gen consoles:

The Freemode Events Update is only for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. As we’d mentioned previously in our Asked & Answered series here at the Newswire future content updates like this one would only be possible on the newer and more powerful systems.

However, one thing to note here is that the developer may release less demanding future updates on Xbox 360 and Playstation 4. Nothing can be said with utmost certainty though.

As for the GTA Online ‘Freemode Events’ update, according to developer, it takes full advantage of the PC hardware and current-gen consoles:

[It takes] full advantage of the latest generation of consoles and PC hardware, there are no menus, lobbies, or load times.
