GTA 5 Account Transfer (2022): How To Transfer PS4, Xbox One Saves to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S

 

August 15, 2022

GTA 5 and GTA Online have finally arrived on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, but for those of you who’ve been building your criminal empire on PS4 and Xbox One for the past few years will no doubt want to know how to transfer your accounts over to the new next-gen consoles.

Frankly, why wouldn’t you? The new next-gen versions of the game feature new graphics modes including up to 4K resolution, a framerate of up to 60 frames per second, improved texture qualities, HDR options and ray tracing, faster loading times, immersive 3D audio, platform-specific features, and more.

Initially, Rockstar was having a few issues migrating accounts, but now players can transfer without any issues, so read on, we’ll explain everything you need to know if you want to upgrade your Grand Theft Auto experience.

Can I transfer GTA 5/GTA Online saves between PlayStation and Xbox accounts?

Yes, you can. If you’ve previously been playing GTA 5 and GTA Online on Xbox One or PS4 you can choose to bring your save data over to the other console brand when you make your next-gen account transfer. To confirm this means PS4 players can transfer to both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One players can choose to transfer to Xbox Series X|S or PS5. This is done via a one-time transfer through Rockstar Games Social Club.

In addition, although most people know this by now, just to be clear, you cannot transfer Xbox 360 or PS3 saves to next-gen consoles.

If you need a quick table to make it crystal clear, look below.

Platform Transfer Can you transfer your account
Xbox One → Xbox Series X/S Yes
Xbox One → PlayStation 5 Yes
PlayStation 4 → PlayStation 5 Yes
PlayStation 4 → Xbox Series X/S Yes
Xbox 360 → Xbox Series X/S No
Xbox 360 → PlayStation 5 No
PlayStation 3 → PlayStation 5 No
PlayStation 3 → Xbox Series X/S No

How to transfer GTA Online profile to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S

Below you’ll find the steps you need to follow to transfer your GTA Online profile to PS5 or Xbox Series X|S. Do note, once your progress has been transferred from PlayStation 4 or Xbox One to PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S, your migrated profile will no longer be available on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. This is also a one-time migration, so additional profiles cannot be transferred between PlayStation 4 or Xbox One to PC in the future. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Sign-up or sign-in to the Rockstar Games Social Club at www.rockstargames.com/socialclub.
  2. Under Settings, verify the preferred console account is linked to your Rockstar Games Social Club account
    • If you are transferring your save data from PS4 to PS5 you need to link your PlayStation Network account.
    • If you are transferring your save data from Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S consoles you only need to link your Xbox Live account.
    • If you’re planning to transfer your save data from Xbox One to Ps5, or PS4 to Xbox Series X|S, you’ll need to ensure that both accounts are linked to your Rockstar Games Social Club.
  3. Now you can migrate your profile through either the GTA Online Landing Page or Pause Menu once you have signed in to the Rockstar Games Social Club on your preferred console. Follow the on-screen steps.
  4. Keep in mind, any unspent purchased GTA$ are not eligible for transfer across platforms (i.e., PlayStation 4 to Xbox Series X|S, or Xbox One to PlayStation 5).
  5. An alert screen will let you know when the migration successfully completes.
  6. Players will then be brought to the Review Character screen where they can choose to start a new character or continue with their existing one.
  7. Choosing to continue with a new character will overwrite the existing character slot. If you have not created a new character via the Career Builder, you will be brought to the Career Builder selection screen.

That’s everything you need to know about how to transfer your account in Grand Theft Auto 5, but stay tuned for more GTA 5 news, guides, and updates from Turtle Beach.
