How to transfer GTA Online characters from Xbox One and PS4 to Xbox Series X/S and PS5?
Log in to your Rockstar account and load GTA Online on your next-gen device. You will then be prompted to verify the GTA Online profile associated with the account you are transferring. Just select the correct profile and wait for the process to complete, and you will be able to access your GTA Online characters.
How to transfer characters from GTA Online to PC in 2022?
To proceed, you must have a Rockstar Games Social Club account. If you do not have a Social Club account, you must create one when installing the game on your PC.
Launch Grand Theft Auto V on PC and log into Social Club. Start GTA Online through the character select menu or the pause menu. You will be prompted to transfer your old GTA Online hero and achievement data to the new system and change their appearance if desired.
You can defer the transfer to a later time. To return to this function later, you must open the “Network” section in the pause menu.
After accepting the previous offer, the screen will show the currency balance, accumulated RP count, and level of all previous characters. This character will be transferred to PC.
You will be prompted to select one dataset if you have characters from different systems. Only one set of characters and their data can be migrated to the PC. Once the transfer is complete, you will be prompted to select a hero and enter GTA Online.
How to migrate Grand Theft Auto Online characters and progress to PlayStation4?
Things you should have to start the process:
- One copy of Grand Theft Auto V.
- The original character on PlayStation 3.
- Rockstar Games Social Club account. If you do not have a Social Club account, you will need to create one.
- Your Social Club account must be linked to your PlayStation Network account.
Now let’s move to the process:
- Sign in to GTA V on your PlayStation 4 and sign in to PlayStation Network if you are not already signed in.
- Then you will see a list of characters with data such as amount, RP, etc. This data is transferred to
- PlayStation 4. Only one character can be transferred to PlayStation 4.
- After the transfer, you will be asked to select a character and enter GTA Online.
Note: The money you earned in the game will be transferred. Any new in-game purchases will only carry over if the console is in the same family (e.g., PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4).
You can continue to play as an existing character on PlayStation3, but your progress for that system’s character will remain on that system only after the transfer.
How to transfer GTA Online characters to Xbox One?
Transfer your character to Xbox one will require these things:
- One copy of Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox One.

- Rockstar Games Social Club account.
- Account Xbox Live Gold.
- Your account Social Club should be linked to Xbox Live.
Launch Grand Theft Auto V on your Xbox One and sign in to Xbox Live. Enter GTA Online from the pause menu or the character select wheel.
When you log in, you will be given the option to reshape your character and transfer your GTA Online character. To complete the transfer, you can return to this option later via the Pause menu.
Then you will see a list of characters with data such as amount, RP, etc. This data is sent to your Xbox One. Only one character can be transferred to Xbox One. After the transfer, you will be asked to select a character and enter GTA Online.
Some things may not be transferred

2. Published to-do and featured playlists are not transferable between game systems from different manufacturers.

GTA Online character transfer issues 2022:
1. You cannot try the new “Career Builder” in GTA Online while using existing GTA Online characters. You will need to create a new character to try that option. If you have already reached the character limit, you must delete your character before starting your Career Builder profile.
2. Do not turn off the console during this (or other) part of the migration process. The saved data may be corrupted. You can start your GTA Online profile from scratch on next-gen consoles, but we recommend transferring your save data when prompted. This ensures secure access when needed, and data can be deleted anytime.
