GTA Online: Can I Transfer My Character To Another Console?

Unfortunately, it's not currently possible in GTA Online to transfer characters to another console. Despite support ending soon for Xbox 360 and PS3 editions of GTA Online, Rockstar hasn't opened up a way to transfer characters again.

GTA Online: Could I Transfer My Character Previously?

Yes, back in 2014. Rockstar initially allowed you to perform character transfers, though this was removed in March 2017. As for why, that's probably due to hackers on PS3 and Xbox 360. Previously, players could mod accounts on the older consoles, then transfer onto PS4 or Xbox One. As a result, Rockstar likely removed support for this reason.
