If you’ve purchased Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and you haven’t played GTA Online since 2013, you’ll want to hold off on attempting to transfer your online character. There’s an odd bug that’s preventing transfers, a feature promised for launch with the game.
If you haven’t played GTA Online since 2013, when you try to transfer accounts, you’ll be met with a notification that says “No previous Grand theft Auto Online data is associated with your Social Club account.”
Rockstar is aware of the issue, and has responded to it on its official support page. Here’s what they offer.
