The next-gen update for Grand Theft Auto V and GTA online is out now on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and a potential issue for some players has been resolved just in time for release. Apparently, players who previously migrated their GTA online account from PlayStation 4 or Xbox One to PC have been prevented from transferring their accounts to next-gen consoles. This led to a lot of frustration for players who were eager to enjoy the game on their PS5 or Xbox Series X, but it looks like Rockstar Games has now fixed the issue, allowing players to migrate their accounts, as intended!
“The issue blocking the migration of GTA Online profiles from PS4 and Xbox One accounts previously migrated to PC has been resolved and this migration now works as intended. Please note that GTA Online profiles on PC cannot be migrated to PS5 or Xbox Series X|S,” Rockstar wrote on Twitter.
It’s good to see that this issue was resolved quickly, so players can enjoy the next-gen upgrade with their original accounts. On Twitter, many fans reacted in surprise that Rockstar had fixed the issue; it originally seemed like it was an intentional decision on the part of the developers. However, the patch is now live, and that should come as a relief to gamers who have spent years with the game. Some fans seem to believe that Rockstar changed course on the decision based on fan feedback, but it’s impossible to say it with certainty.
While GTA onlineThe next-gen upgrade isn’t released until tonight, Rockstar let players begin the migration process earlier this month. The idea was that players could jump into the game as soon as it went live. It didn’t quite work for players affected by this issue, but the resolution came at a very opportune time, regardless!
