GTA 5 cross-platform support

You may want to enjoy the new updates for GTA Online with your friends. If you play on a different platform, you should be careful to avoid any nasty surprises. Because while GTA 5 already offers cross-play support on some platforms, this doesn't apply to others.

To avoid confusing GTA 5 cross-play and cross-platform support, we'll give you detailed information about all platforms.

GTA 5 cross-platform on PC

PC players cannot team up with Playstation or Xbox players. GTA 5 doesn't have cross-platform support on PC.

There are very logical reasons for this decision by Rockstar Games. First, since you play the game entirely online, the servers where your progress is saved must be different on each platform. In other words, the save files of PC players and PS5 players will be stored in different locations.

GTA 5 cross-platform on Playstation

GTA 5 already has cross-gen support for Playstation. PS5 and PS4 players can play together if they want.

However, Grand Theft Auto 5 doesn't have cross-platform support for the Playstation. Rockstar Games hasn't commented on the fact that this situation will change. Considering that it's technically tricky anyway, we can say that you can't meet Xbox players on the same server.

Playstation players can't play with PC players too.

GTA 5 cross-platform on Xbox

GTA 5 already has cross-gen support for Xbox. Xbox Series X, Series S, and Xbox One players can play together if they want.

However, GTA 5 doesn't have cross-platform support for the Xbox. This will not change ever because it's technically challenging for Rockstar Games. If you want to play with Xbox players, you can check out different games like Sea of Thieves.

Cross-play support between PC and Xbox, which is present in many games, isn't included in GTA 5.

We can say that the release of GTA 5 on next-generation consoles is the last technical development of the game. Considering that Rockstar Games has now shifted its focus to GTA 6, it doesn't make sense to expect more.
