With many players expected to jump into GTA Online during its free period, Rockstar has allowed players to transfer their PS4 progress to the PS5 version ahead of time. The only problem was that the migration process wasn’t working for players who have previously migrated their characters to PC. The good news is Rockstar has managed to fix the GTA Online migration issues for PS5 and those players should now be able to migrate their profiles.
Who can transfer their GTA Online profile to PS5?
All PS4 and Xbox One players can migrate their profiles to GTA Online on PS5 with a one-time migration process. This process can be carried out right now by heading to GTA 5 on PS4/Xbox One and going to the Game tab of the Pause Menu. Here there is an option to upload a save game to the Rockstar Games Social Club and this must be downloaded to PS5 within 90 days of uploading to the Social Club. Be aware that once migration is complete, all GTA Online progress will have been removed from PS4/Xbox One and can only be used on PS5. This includes all Characters, GTA$, Progression, Stats, Vehicles, Properties, Weapons, Clothing, and Player-Created Jobs.
PC players players cannot migrate their profile to PS5. This unintentionally led to a problem where PS4 players who had previously migrated their accounts to PC could not then migrate them to PS5. Rockstar has now confirmed “the issue blocking GTA Online profile migration of PS4 and Xbox One accounts that were previously migrated to PC has been addressed, and that migration is now working as intended.” Those who had previously faced the migration issues with GTA Online should now try again.
In other news, Otherside Entertainment has confirmed the team hasn’t worked on System Shock 3 since 2019. With the franchise now in the hands of Tencent, it’s unlikely the game will ever see the light of day. Elsewhere, EA Seattle is currently hiring for a new AAA third-person open world RPG.
