On this page, we're going to explain how to transfer PS4 save data progress to PS5. It goes without saying that before you get started you'll need to own GTA 5 on the PS4 and have started the single player storyline involving Franklin, Michael, and Trevor.
Upload PS4 Save Data
Load into GTA 5's single player mode and once you have control of any character press the Options button on your controller. Navigate to Game and select Upload Save Game. You'll be presented with a list of saves, so pick the one you want to transfer — presumably your most recent save data. Keep in mind that you can only upload one save per console family and it will only be retained on Rockstar's servers for 90 days, so don't start this process unless you plan to buy GTA 5 on PS5 within the next three months.
Depending on your Internet connection speed, it'll take a few moments to upload and then you'll get a confirmation prompt if the upload was successful. You can navigate back to Options > Game > Upload Save Game to see which save was uploaded and when if you want to make sure it worked.
Download PS4 Save Data Progress to PS5
Once you've downloaded and installed GTA 5 on PS5, boot the game and from the main menu select the Story tab. Choose the Resume Story option and you'll be given the option to Download Save Game Data. You can skip this step if you'd like to start the single player campaign from the beginning, but assuming you want to transfer your PS4 save data progress to PS5 you should see the save that you previously uploaded in the steps above. Confirm that this is the save data progress you want to transfer and wait for it to download. You'll get a Success prompt if it's worked, and you'll load into the game.
Any of the Trophies that you've unlocked in GTA 5 thus far will automatically unlock once you successfully load into the game, and you'll be able to pick up exactly where you left off on PS4. And that concludes the process of how to transfer PS4 save data progress to PS5.
