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 a number of classic Rockstar titles.

If you own a disc-based copy of any backward 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.

Either way, you’ll be able to pick up right where you left off. 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.

I feel like this was obvious for XSX. Doesn’t virtually everything just work?

I think since they are rereleasing GTAV they probably just wanted to be super clear to people about it.

I'm almost certain they said they were porting GTA 5 to the new consoles. Not just as a BC-Title, but a full blown PS5 port. When they did that shark thing 1 million per month.

I am terrified of Microsoft and am always concerned about them.

Without improvements in resolution or framerate, info about simple BC seems redundant.

Well you know they want to sell GTA V for the fourth time. So if you want the improvements buy the game again. I've had the game for free on PC the last time. I'm to old for this bulls***.

I remember when Andrew House was saying how you can import your save from Xbox 360 onto PS4 with GTA V... Hopefully my mind is not acting out, but I am almost sure of it.

I think that was your GTA Online character only.
