With GTA 5 releasing on all the latest consoles, console players playing GTA Online might want to upgrade and start playing on the newest console. After all, there are plenty of weekly updates for the game happening and the game is very much alive.
So to do that, you will want to migrate your GTA Online account if you want to change which console you play the game on. Here, we go over how you can transfer your GTA Online account.
The Process Of Transferring GTA Online Accounts
The key to transferring your GTA online account is through the Rockstar Games Social Club website. Without having an account with this site, you will not be able to transfer your accounts between consoles.
Rockstar Support says that you need to not only have a Social Club account but also must link it with your PlayStation Network account or Xbox Live Account.
When you turn on GTA 5 and hit the landing page, head over to GTA Online. There, you will have the option to migrate profiles to the current console you are using. You will be able to choose a profile to migrate to your console. The process from there is pretty automatic.
You will have to note that once you transfer your GTA Online account, there is no going back. This is a permanent transfer so do be sure that this is what you want.
Who Can Transfer GTA Online Accounts?
Transferring GTA Online accounts is a process made for console players only. PC players cannot transfer accounts. The way it works is that the previous generation consoles, meaning Xbox One and PS4, can transfer to any next generation console, meaning PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Please note that PS3 and Xbox 360 players cannot transfer to PS5 or Xbox Series X/S.
