How to transfer your GTA 5 save game to Xbox Series X/S and PS5


RockstarGames has brought its best-selling action sandbox, Grand Theft Auto V, to consoles Playstation 5 (PS5) and Xbox Series X/S , extending the title to the latest generation. Yes OK GTA V has enjoyed nearly a decade in the spotlight after its original release in 2013, one of Xbox’s best games has now received another graphical update with new content. The paid upgrade costs $40, though a limited-time promotion cut the price by 50% for the first few months on sale.

GTA V, now “extended and improved”, features mostly the same content, now available in up to 4K resolution, with support for 60 frames per second (FPS), ray tracing and other updates. Rockstar Games allows players to present all the progress of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (PS4) era, ensuring a smooth transition to the latest consoles. But the process isn’t exactly obvious, and this step-by-step guide makes it a little easier once you know where to look.

With GTA V moving to Xbox Series X/S and PS5, Rockstar Games is allowing players to carry current progress over to the latest builds. While the next-gen version of the game is completely separate from the Xbox One and PS4 copies, there is a manual process to migrate existing GTA Online and Story Mode save files on launch day. It’s not completely seamless and requires some work to get everything moving forward, but it ensures that you won’t lose eight years of progress after the switch.

GTA V uses the Rockstar Games Social Club service, which allows players to link their Xbox and PlayStation accounts to a central Rockstar Games account, which is used for transfers. It’s also a one-time migration for GTA Online, meaning you only get one chance to transfer your data, should you keep progressing on previous Xbox One and PS4 builds.

Moving GTA Online progress is relatively simple, with a remote transfer to the cloud via the Social Club service. Offline Story Mode save transfer requires a bit of extra work as it asks players to manually load their previous save file before re-downloading it in the upgraded version.

Can I transfer game saves between Xbox and PlayStation accounts?

Yes, GTA V allows Xbox One and PS4 players to bring their GTA Online and Story save data to next-gen consoles, regardless of their previous console. While Xbox One saves can be transferred to Xbox Series X/S, and PS4 saves work with PS5, Rockstar Games also offers a migration between console families. Xbox One players can move to PS5 and PS4 players can move to Xbox Series X/S via one-time transfer through Rockstar Games Social Club.

Can I transfer progress from GTA V for PC to Xbox Series X/S and PS5?

No, GTA V on Xbox Series X/S and PS5 only allows players to transfer data from Xbox One and PS4 consoles at launch. Rockstar Games has stated that it does not plan to allow PC save transfers with these latest console releases, although it will allow cross-ecosystem transfers between the Xbox and PlayStation families of consoles. As you might guess, Xbox 360 and PS3 saves are also non-transferable. Below is the full breakdown of possible scenarios, detailing cross-platform compatibility.

GTA Online Transfers allow players to carry over multiplayer progress from previous platforms to the latest console versions of GTA V. The feature means you won’t have to abandon all those years of investment when moving to a new platform.

According to Rockstar Games, the one-time transfer seamlessly migrates most of GTA Online’s progression, transferring characters, progression, player-created jobs, and other unlockable rewards. While your current GTA$ balance will carry over as well, those moving to a new family of consoles (for example, switching from PlayStation to Xbox) will not see GTA$ purchased translated. While the currency earned won’t matter to the platform, it’s best to spend any GTA$ purchased through Shark Cards before moving on.

Migrating the GTA V Story Mode transfer requires some additional work, uploading GTA V save data to the Rockstar Games Social Club cloud before re-downloading to PS5 or Xbox Series X/S. Unlike the interconnected nature of GTA Online, the offline story mode is not designed to sync up seamlessly with online servers. You will need the previous version of GTA V available to upload your Story Mode data, along with the next-gen version to download your save file from the cloud.

As we have mentioned in AmericanPost.News, single player save transfers require a Rockstar Games Social Club, registered in both versions of the game, to deliver the save file.
