GTA Online is best played with friends, but what if you have a PS5 but your friends play on PS4 – can PS5 players play GTA Online with PS4 players? What about those who have Xbox One – can they play with those having Series X|S? Find out if there is cross-play between PlayStation and Xbox consoles for GTA 5 Expanded & Enhanced as well.
Can PS5 players play GTA online with PS4 players?
The answer is no. If you have bought the GTA 5 Expanded & Enhanced (next-gen) version for the PS5, you cannot play with friends who have the original GTA 5 game on PS4. In case you purchase the original game on PS5, then you can play with other players who have a PS4. This has some cons, of course, because you won’t be getting the next-gen experience despite having the next-gen console.
Can Xbox Series X|S players play GTA Online with Xbox One players?
No, if you have the GTA 5 Expanded & Enhanced version on Xbox Series X|S, you cannot play with others who are using the Xbox One console. But, similar to PS, you can download the original game made for the Xbox One on your Series X|S and crossplay with players who have the previous-gen consoles.
Can PS5 players play GTA Online with Xbox Series X|S players?
The answer is no, PlayStation 5 players cannot play GTA Online with Xbox Series X|S players. Whether this feature will be added in the future is yet to be seen.
