In what is very reminiscent of the original launch on the Xbox 360 and PS3, it would appear the next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V is doomed to repeat an unfortunate part of its history.
It’s reported that players some who are attempting to migrate their previous GTA V accounts over from their last-gen consoles are facing technical problems. Fortunately, Rockstar is right on the ball as usual. They’ve wasted no time throwing up a support page , addressing this very issue:
- Question : I haven’t played GTA Online since 2013. When I try to transfer to PS4 or Xbox One, it says “No previous Grand theft Auto Online data is associated with your Social Club account.” I then tried to go back and play GTA Online on PS3 or Xbox 360 to verify, but it says the Rockstar services are unavailable. Help!
- Answer : We are looking into an issue preventing character transfer and GTA Online login on accounts that haven’t played GTA Online since 2013.
