Prime Gaming Benefits End for GTA and Red Dead Online

It was revealed through a Rockstar Support article (not even through an announcement) that Prime Gaming benefits are set to end for both Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online, and it’s happening as we speak.

From March 31st, GTA Online players will see their Prime Gaming benefits options for the game disappear, and from April 3rd, Red Dead Online players will follow suit. This marks the end of a deal put in place way back in 2019, which has long rewarded players with money, gold bars, outfits, emotes, and much more, simply for being a member of Amazon Prime.

Prime, Roll Out

It’s simply stated in the support article on Rockstar’s website:

Prime Gaming benefits are no longer supported as of March 31, 2023, for Grand Theft Auto Online and April 3, 2023, for Red Dead Online.

However, those that are subscribed to Amazon’s premium service can still pick up some last-minute goodies before the service is sunsetted forever.

For GTA Online players that logged in between the 30th and the 31st of March, there’s a one-time payment of $125,000 waiting for them. And, for Prime Gaming subscribers that play Red Dead Online before April 3rd, there’s a little more awaiting them:

  • Five Gold Bars
  • Howl Emote
  • Buckley Hat
  • Rivera Hooded Tunic

It’s a bitter end to a service that fans have been taking advantage of for quite some time. There are nothing but positive things to say about Prime Gaming, which rewards gamers who are actively a subscriber to Amazon Prime with free content across a vast string of titles.

At the time of writing, Prime Gaming members can claim bonus, in-game content in the likes of Overwatch, League of Legends, VALORANT, FIFA 23, Hearthstone, New World, Just Dance, PUBG, and many more. Not only that but Prime Gaming regularly offers up full, free games for its subscribers.

But now, that offering has been slimmed down ever so slightly, and within a matter of days, all benefits associated with GTA Online and Red Dead Online will disappear.
