For GTA 5, crossplay is not going to happen for a number of reasons.

 

Firstly, the differences between PC and consoles are too large. Consoles have only controller with or without auto aim, PC have keyboard and mouse, with optional controller and auto aim, higher frame rates, and most importantly, mods. It wouldn't exactly be balanced unless you limit PC to 30fps and controller only. I'm sure most people on PS4/XB1 wouldn't be very welcoming of PC players with mods in their sessions.

 

Secondly, between Xbox1 and PS4, the hardware is similar enough but both platforms use different subscription services for Online. Rockstar would need support from Sony and Microsoft to make it happen.

 

Third, GTA Online is now 6 years old, and crossplay is quite a fundamental feature in any game (often used as selling point) that should be added on release or at least early in its life cycle. Rockstar wouldn't be willing to spend the necessary resources for crossplay on a 6 year old game, when they could instead release the Oppressor Mk3 and just sell more shark cards.

 

As for why Rockstar did not add crossplay for GTA 5 in 2013 or for GTA 4 multiplayer before that, I guess they thought it wasn't worth it back then, but it certainly isn't worth it now.

 

For GTA 6, if they add it on release it would certainly be worth it. I would petition for that (and maybe they can save RDR2 by adding crossplay in next update)

Little bit of false info there, only PS4 doesn't have access to keyboard and mouse.

Sorry for not being more specific, I meant native support by the game, without an adapter that emulates a controller, I know Xbox One has KBM support these days, but not for GTA 5, unless you use an adapter, and it probably wouldn't work that great.

I couldn't find GTA 5 on the list of Xbox One games with KBM support.

By the way, PS4 supports keyboard and mouse too.

Looks like the only issue with KBM on consoles today is games not supporting it.

I know I'm late, but all they have to do is make it so you can only play with other platforms in an invite only session. They might not be able to do this between xbox 1 and ps4, but they can still do it between xbox 1 and pc, and ps4 and pc.

I wanted to add something.
