Rockstar Games has announced that its “Christmas gifts” will be available for a longer period due to the PSN and Xbox Live outages.
The new cars, outfits, weapons and snowball fights were meant to be available only up until January 5th, but will now be available for longer. The developer has not yet declared when they will actually stop allowing users to get their GTA Christmas fix, but the news will be welcome for players.
Both console networks have experienced long periods of downtime over the Christmas period thanks to suspected denial of service attacks by ‘Lizard Squad’. Both services have come back online, although PSN is still experiencing some issues.
Due to issues with PSN & XBL connectivity, we’re extending the GTA Online Festive Surprise Christmas Day inventory gifts for the time being.
