On 19 March 2020 Grand Theft Auto IV will return to Steam, but without multiplayer, because Microsoft no longer support Games for Windows Live. Also the radio station RamJam FM, Self-Actualization FM and Vice City FM will be temporarily unavailable and the leaderboards will be removed.
People who already have GTA IV will receive automatically an update in March that removes the multiplayer from the game. They will still be able to continue to use their old savegames in the new version. The new version will be called the “Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition” and will replace both Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City. The update will be 6GB for players who had the normal GTA IV and for players of Episodes from Liberty City the update will be 22GB.
