GTA Online is launching as a standalone product alongside its release on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S and Rockstar Games are allowing players to transfer their online progress to the latest consoles.
This means that all of your vehicles, your apartments, and the tips you used to make money fast in GTA Online won’t all be lost when you do upgrade to the new versions of the game. But, how do you go about transferring your progress to the new consoles and can you take that progress back to PS4 and Xbox One?
All the details have been revealed by Rockstar with an explanation of how a GTA Online save transfer for PS4 to PS5 and Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S will work. So, keep reading on for a run-through of the steps you need to take to transfer your progress to this new “expanded and enhanced” version of the game.
GTA Online SAVE TRANSFER FOR PS4 TO PS5 AND XBOX ONE TO XBOX SERIES X|S
In order to perform a GTA Online PS4 to PS5 and Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S save transfer, you will need to upload your save data to the Rockstar Games Social Club. From there, the following steps can be taken:
- Enter Grand Theft Auto Online on PS4 or Xbox One
- Go to the Game tab
- Here you will be presented with the option to upload your save file
There are some restrictions when it comes to save file transfers with GTA Online. You cannot transfer your save data back to PS4 or Xbox One once it has been uploaded to the latest versions of the game.
You can begin transferring your save files right now but once uploaded, the data will only be available to download for 90 days. You can also only perform a save transfer with one game save per platform at a time.
Any money purchased through your console’s storefront will also not be able to be transferred to platforms outside of the same console family. However, money purchased will move from PS4 to PS5 and Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S. Any money earned in the game, though, will be able to be transferred across console families.
That covers GTA Online PS4 to PS5 and Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S save transfers. This method will also transfer your GTA 5 save data to the full game.
