A few days ago, we mentioned how Rockstar hasn’t mentioned how their older games work on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. We just had to bring up the issue – they delivered.
„With the imminent launches of both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S later this month, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2 will be playable on these new consoles via backward compatibility, along with the most recent versions of L.A. Noire (including the PlayStation VR version of L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files), and several classic Rockstar titles.
If you own a disc-based copy of any backwards-compatible game, you’ll be able to insert that disc directly into your new PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X (excludes PlayStation 5 Digital Edition and Xbox Series S consoles). Meanwhile, digital game owners will have instant access to download any compatible Rockstar Games titles they already have tied to their PlayStation Network or Xbox Live accounts. On PlayStation 5 these will be available from the Your Collection section of your Game Library and on Xbox Series X|S from the Ready to Install section,” Rockstar’s website claims.
Don’t worry about using your progress either: „Transfer save files and full games via LAN cables, connecting wirelessly, or with USB storage. You can also transfer the most recent cloud save tied to your PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live account – you may want to ensure cloud saves are enabled on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One console before playing on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S. Your current progress and accomplishments in both Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online will also carry over, provided you are using the same PlayStation Network or Xbox Live account on the new console,” Rockstar added.
The following Xbox and Xbox 360 games are supported on the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S: Bully: Scholarship Edition, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Midnight Club: Los Angeles, Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis. These PlayStation 2-PlayStation 4 titles from the PlayStation Store will be supported: Bully, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Manhunt, Max Payne, Red Dead Revolver, The Warriors. Each PS Plus subscriber will get 1 million GTA dollars each month if they play Grand Theft Auto Online on PlayStation 4 until the standalone GTA Online arrives on PlayStation 5 next year.
