Grand Theft Auto: The Ultimate Save Transfer Guide (PS4 to PS5 & Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S)

It’s evident that Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) and GTA Online can be played on both old and new console devices.

With next-gen consoles becoming more affordable, there is a growing demand for players to continue playing on their existing account/profile/progress from their old device onto the new consoles.

If you are looking for a method to transfer/migrate your profile completely, this post is perfect for you.

What Are The Purposes of Transferring/Migrating Your GTA Progress?

GTA Online and GTA 5 offer cross-platform, allowing you to transfer your progress between console devices in the same generation.

As a result, transferring your GTA 5 story mode progress or GTA Online profile ensures that you continue from where you left off with all your progress, stats, cash, and achievements intact. Additionally, playing on a new-generation console brings better graphics and performance improvements.

Important note: Transferring your profile data or progress is limited to consoles within the same brand. For example, you can move from PS4 to PS5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S. It’s important to note that you can’t transfer data from a new console to an older one.
