The new and upgraded versions of Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S are only days away from release. Rockstar Games announced its plans to open its doors once again to enable players to migrate their GTA Online progress to next-generation platforms, with PC unfortunately being absent in the migration platform category.
GTA Online users on PC often struggle to play due to online cheaters interfering with their gameplay experience, people who cheat gain so much power to cause disruption to players. These disruptions can include in most cases, DDoS attacks as cheaters can view anyone’s IP address through a mod menu. Throughout the years, Rockstar hasn’t taken many actions against online cheating, only very little action is pursued via the company’s legal team.
Many players in the GTA Online community had high hopes to transfer their PC progress to either PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S due to both platforms having very tight security to prevent any form of online cheating.
Lots of content creators can hardly play GTA Online on PC because their fans and trolls can easily locate their Social Club ID in order to gain access to the said creator’s online lobby – which often ruins the creator’s livesteam. This problem has even happened to an official Rockstar livestream, once in a 2020 livesteam featuring Danny Brown, it was a terrible time for Rockstar and the livesteam had to finish early due to this one major issue.
If Rockstar isn’t going to keep improving upon the cheating issue, let PC players transfer their hard-earned progress to the console versions so they can have to play the game without anyone ruining it for them. The company has announced the new console versions will feature a new 60FPS graphics mode across all the new versions, so it would be a huge win for PC players if Rockstar allows this.
Rockstar, if you’re listening please do the right thing and let PC players migrate their progress to PC.
Hell fucking no. I don’t want to see massive level 8000s filling rooms on consoles. I worked hard getting to level 1500 on ps5 don’t want hackers transferring account over they will just end up selling accounts.
Fk no. Start everyone off fresh! It’s gonna be a totally different feel and everyone should start of new again. Think about it Rockstar you’ll be making that fat cash again for a grip longer.
Rockstar is so Smart they are Dumb they are so hard up sales & money This game Should have the upgraded expanded & enhanced from PS4 & Pc Rockstar is basically being greedy juicing a 13 year game are you serious? Grow up Rockstar PC users need more just like PS4 users we don’t need to keep upgrading our systems for a 13 year game PC modding is needed because Rockstar don’t listen to their fans nor make the game exciting just very Limited and tbh PC is way better I need to switch even if we get a PS5 the PC experience is better it’s more opportunities Rockstar needs to have it for all consoles because it’s a old game and let PC get the E&E because it will be better than PS5 & ps alot of ppl still want their PS4 Think about that and alot of ppl will cross of over to PC because Rockstar don’t have the consistent ideas like PC modders I’m switching to PC because PS5 is a waste of money
I’m kind of torn ATM… I have my PC account but I own a ps5 now.. if they let PC migrate then that’s awesome, but if not, it’s not a big deal I don’t think.
Rockstar even if you decide not to go with PC to Xbox to stop all the hackers moving across, could you not just add in a function to move from xbox to PC I rarely play on xbox now, and I never had a good PC that could run GTA5, but since I have a compatable PC now after I got my xbox one, it would be nice to continue from where I left off.
Ok lets take a minute to think about this ☝️
Pc migration would be a dream for honest players to migrate onto console but would also be a nightmare as this would open the floodgates for exploited mod menu Accounts with superior character advantages for trolling or purchasing goods in next gen high security consoles that pride themselves on keeping such exploited accounts away that have violated the T&C’s with menus therefore upsetting the balance of fair play use.
Migration from Exploited PS3 & Xbox 360 consoles on Next Gen was troublesome at first that angered many legit players who worked hard for what they have vs exploited acc’s and the battle has been even bigger for pc gta online that microsoft has decided to treat all pc GTA Online as so never to crossover platforms due the numbers in the thousands which is far too many to filter out.
