Remember when AAA games released totally bug free? No, neither do we. The latest addition to this dubious trend is the next-gen rerelease of Grand Theft Auto V, which won't let players transfer online characters from their last-gen games. Specifically, the much-touted feature, which would even accept transfers from the Xbox 360 version, has stopped working for anyone who hasn't logged in since 2013.

The error itself warns that "no previous Grand theft Auto Online data is associated with your Social Club account". What's more, the bug prevents you from logging onto your file in the original release as well. You needn't panic too much, though, as Rockstar is on the case, stating that it is "urgently looking into an issue preventing character transfer and GTA Online login on accounts that haven’t played GTA Online since 2013". Indeed, the developer has set up a support page dedicated to the issue, which can you look at through here.
