You may have seen the news that after 8 long years, Rockstar's shutting down Grand Theft Auto Online's PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 servers on December 16. While they've abandoned adding new GTA Online content to either platform since 2015, servers were never taken offline.
For those of you still playing GTA V's original edition on PS3, you might be wondering whether those saves can be transferred to newer PlayStation consoles. After all, it's still fully supported for PS4 and come November 11, PS5 too. Rockstar are looking to move on, so is it possible?
Can I Transfer GTA Online Progress From PS3 to PS4/PS5?
Sadly, it is not. As outlined in a recently updated support page, Rockstar offered this FAQ:
Will I be able to transfer my progress from GTA Online on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 to current console generations before it is shut down on December 16, 2021?
No, this is not possible. There is no feature available to transfer character data or progress from those platforms. All website stat tracking for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 via the Rockstar Games Social Club will also be removed.
It's worth noting that Grand Theft Auto V's story mode won't be affected by this move, though it's not possible to transfer that save data either. For more information on GTA V's latest updates, we've got you covered right here.
