AFAIK, the servers are P2P as of the GameSpy removal patch released a few years back so there's nothing to turn off.

They may be P2P, but have some kind of authorization server, like Uncharted 2 and 3 did. Everyone in 2018/17 kept saying they won't ever go down, as long as PSN works, but then they announced the shutdown. BUT people were still able to play the game, before their PS3s crashed or were kciked out of it, by their internet connectons.

Max Payne 3 uses Sonys Internal Playstation network matchmaking (games are P2P but matchmaking is handled by Sony). They will shutdown the login server and the back end database (Playerstats and Leaderboards) on Rockstars end.


Red dead redemption uses a simpler back end only the matchmaking is handled by Rockstar and no database to store user information is used. Same for GTA IV. 

GTA 5 is full of hackers and uses database servers too to store player information so they axed it to cut cost and embarrassment on there end as a customer going into that game will have a bad first impression.
