Players face the difficult decision to either stick with their existing platform, or sacrifice all the characters and progress they’ve built up over the years.

They also stand to lose any vehicles, properties, weapons and clothing they’ve acquired.

The problem only affects anyone wanting to move from PC to next-gen consoles PS5 or Xbox Series X/S.

Hours before launch, developers managed to address the fault, saying “migration is now working as intended”.

But it’s little comfort to any PC gamers wanting to jump in the other direction, as they will remain blocked.

“GTA Online profiles on PC cannot be migrated to PS5 or Xbox Series X|S,” the firm said.

The publisher has also warned that some profiles may not be eligible for migration for other reasons.

This includes suspended or banned accounts, or those that have “illegitimate or insufficient progress”.

Rockstar has published a full support page detailing how users can migrate their accounts.

All players have been reminded that any unspent purchased GTA$ cannot be transferred from one platform to another, too.

So anyone wanting to shift from Xbox to PlayStation, or vice versa, will have to leave funds behind.
