GTA Online features intense multiplayer action every day across many different platforms, but this puts a strain on the servers, so check to see if your platform’s servers are operational right now.

Eight years after its original release and GTA V is still going in strong, particularly its online multiplayer component.

GTA Online continues to break ground in terms of players and monthly revenue, and with the upcoming relaunch of GTA V on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, we expect even more GTA online traffic.

However, like anything that requires online connectivity, GTA Online uses servers, and they don’t always work. Our guide should assist you in finding out if the servers for your chosen platform are currently in perfect working order.

Are the GTA Online servers currently online?

Naturally, GTA Online’s servers might be overwhelmed now and again, due to how many people are playing the game.

Before you start checking your internet connection and the status of your platform’s network, first check Rockstar’s official server status update page.

The latest major outage was reported on September 23, 2021, with the GTA Online servers going down on several platforms.

How to check the status of the GTA Online servers?

If you’re desperate to keep on top of the situation so that you know when you can go back online, then we have the right place for you to check.

On Rockstar’s official website, they have their own dedicated Rockstar Service Status page that details the status of each of their major game’s online servers.

Its easy-to-use system lists the various platforms for Red Dead Online and GTA Online, in particular, and it highlights if the system is fully operational, partially operational, or unavailable at the moment.

GTA Online PS3 and Xbox 360 servers shutting down

The status page isn’t going to have to update the status of the PS3 and Xbox 360 servers for too much longer as Rockstar confirmed that they would be going offline in 2021.

“The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of GTA Online, including website stat tracking via the Rockstar Games Social Club, will officially be shutting down on December 16, 2021. In addition, Shark Cash Cards for GTA Online will no longer be sold for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions after September 15, 2021,” Rockstar’s news post said.


So if you’re ever having an issue connecting to the GTA Online servers, then consider checking out Rockstar’s service help page for potential guidance.

Real Madrid midfielder Isco is available via SBC during the LaLiga TOTS promo. Here’s how to complete the FIFA 22 Isco Flashback SBC with the cheapest solution.

EA have been releasing incredible Flashback SBCs on the same day that each of the major leagues begins their week-long TOTS promo. Dele Alli was available with the Premier League TOTS and Axel Witsel was available with the Bundesliga TOTS.

Now it is Spain’s turn as the Isco Flashback SBC enters FIFA 22 alongside the LaLiga TOTS squad. Isco is looking like a top-tier midfielder alongside the new boosted cards from LaLiga.

Here’s what you need to know about the FIFA 22 Isco Flashback SBC, including the cheapest solution.

Isco is the ideal offensive midfielder to play right under your forwards. The Spanish midfielder boasts a great combination of 5* skills and 4* weak foot. This is excellent for top players who utilize skill moves to make space on the pitch.

Isco shouldn’t be too difficult to link given the plethora of meta LaLiga cards that just entered Ultimate Team. He’ll compliment TOTS Benzema and Vinicius Jr. well with superb Dribbling and Passing stats. His Finishing, Shot Power, and Long Shots stats are also impressive, which proves he can get in on the goals as well.

How to complete FIFA 22 Flashback Isco SBC

To complete this SBC, players will need to give up three squads: Real Madrid, Spain, and LaLiga. With a value of around 290,000 coins, Isco is certainly expensive, but it’s fair value considering his overall rating and quality. You might want to consider getting him into your FIFA 22 squad alongside any LaLiga TOTS players you might pack.

You can check out the cheapest solution below.

Real Madrid requirements

  • # of players from Real Madrid: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70

The Flashback Isco SBC will be available for two weeks as it expires on June 3. This should give you plenty of time to save up coins and fodder to meet the SBC requirements above.

Isco is certainly a meta midfielder for FIFA 22’s endgame and if you use any LaLiga players, he’ll prove to be an asset to your team. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the Ansu Fati and Jesus Navas LaLiga TOTS objectives, which are free cards that also pair well with Isco.
