Those curious about transferring GTA Online data from PS3 to PS4 or PS5, sadly, that’s not available. There is no refund option available for Shark Card purchases as well.

Will I be able to transfer my progress from GTA Online on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 to current console generations before it is shut down on December 16, 2021?

No, this is not possible. There is no feature available to transfer character data or progress from those platforms. All website stat tracking for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 via the Rockstar Games Social Club will also be removed.

Can I get a refund for Shark Card purchases for GTA Online on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 or transfer the balance to current console generations?

Virtual currency and virtual goods purchases are platform-specific and cannot be refunded or transferred. Please see our End User License Agreement for additional details.

Bear in mind, this does not affect each game’s story mode, so there’s at least that. However, this news still blows for how many people still playing the game.
