After more than 8 years and three console generations, Grand Theft Auto 5 is now also appearing on the PS5 and the Xbox Series X / s. Veterans, however, have to think closely if they dare the change. The character transfer comes with a restriction.
GTA 5: Players have to decide
More than eight years after the original release, the developer Rockstar Games Grand Theft Auto 5 also publishes for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X / S . Anyone who wants to experience the improvements in the Next-Gen version in GTA online, but must be careful with the character transfer to the new consoles.
The GTA expert TEZ2 writes on Twitter that the transfer to the PS5 or Xbox Series X / S automatically deletes all character data on the PS4 and the Xbox ONE . The change to the new console generation is therefore a one-way street. This restriction is not good at the fans at all. In the comments, you realize that you now have to decide whether you want to enjoy the graphic improvements in the Next-Gen version, or if you prefer to play with your friends, who do not have a new console yet . Currently there is no crosplay between console generations.
GTA Online: PC players can not even change
The character transfer for GTA online, however, still comes with additional restrictions . Shortly after the release of the new version, numerous players reported that they could not switch from PS4 or Xbox One to PS5 or Xbox Series X / S because they had already transferred their character to the PC.
