TL;DR: not going to happen.

There won't be cross platform in GTA V online, and it is for the best really. It would not be fair at all if there was crossplay between PC and console.

PC have the advantages of keyboard and mouse, higher framerates and mod hack menus. Last one is a good reason to keep PC out of crossplay.

Old gen consoles (PS3, Xbox360) are EOL and no longer supported and updated for GTA V, so they are out of crossplay. (and they have been jailbroken and overrun with script kiddies)

Crossplay between Xbox One and Playstation 4 is apparently not worth investing in for Rockstar.

 

edit: they didn't do cross-platform in RDR2 either as far as I know, but at least RDR2 got DX12 and Vulkan so it runs better on manycore CPUs than GTA V.

I'm afraid GTA V will forever be stuck with DX11.

Sure, we still get Online DLC but GTA V (the base game, not the online) is pretty much an End Of Life product otherwise.

In VI, maybe, but I doubt that. I speculate that the multiplayer will be P2P and the biggest fix will be the one that disables public solo sessions. I'm done with R* multiplayer after playing GTAO since 2013. Just a quick glance at RDO proves that they're not really learning from their mistakes.

I highly doubt cross-play will be happening in any upcoming GTA series games, the most you'd probably get away with is PS5 / XBS (Scarlet) crossplay and I'll explain why below. 

 

We've seen what goes on the PC side of things when it comes to GTAOnline, do we want to repeat history with GTAOnline MK II this time around while adding crossplay in? I think not. Adding full cross-play with PC in the mix is a surefire way to kill the game not long after it's release. Who wants to be spending their first couple of days in GTAOnline MK2 and get teleported & have sexual animations performed on their character?

 

We've also seen the power the online toxic modders have, the ability to disable incoming player reports and see who sent them and then if they want too disconnect them or screw with their account, I predict R* isn't going to have their act together when it comes to GTAO MK II so best to forget about any form of crossplay with PC in the mix while your ahead.

 

Unless R* / TK2 spare no f*cks anymore, I don't ever see cross-play happening and for a good reason. Best to not repeat history

All R* needs to do (and should have already done) is to server host the sessions. Add or increase security and most importantly secure and limit access to the players' database file.

Will have to or GTA will get left behind. I've been playing some of the new COD multiplayer and that's PS4 and PC sessions.

What makes you think we know?

 

But no, definitely not this one, they're scraping up whatever left over content they've had and shoving it into updates, maybe crossplay for Rdr2 but I'd expect that for the PS5/Xbox 2 remaster.

It's sad how people are falsely correlate cross-platform and PC-modding, while the issue is R* bad practices.There are many PC competitive multiplayer games with much less cheating issues, than GTAO. Forza Horizon 4 is cross-platform between PC anx Xbox and there are no issues with cheating, at least not to my knowledge and I'm playing the game almost daily.

 

It's R* fault that they can't and don't want to properly safeguard PC sessions, stupidly continuing this approach in RDRO. They continue to build on the micro-transactions ideas with no anti-cheat, while both are contributing to cheating.

V - no. 
VI - no. 
VII - possibly, but I'd bet there'll be a Rockstar title before GTA VII that has crossplay and cross-compatibility.

Even then I still don't see it happening

 

Until their security and architecture and back ends get a huge upgrade, there shouldn't be any crossplay with PC period. I know security can only be made as good as you can make it at the end of the day but if it's going to lead to week one modders & trouble makers then there's your telltale sign that opening the gates to mix with other platforms is going to be a sh*tstorm and that the devs haven't learned their mistakes from previous titles & releases. 

 

We're forgetting as well that PC players have the option to set up macros to do things on the push of a button. Want to EWO? well guess what just press E and all the work is done without opening that tiny interaction menu. Want to restock all ammo in your inventory? Just press A and all that is taken care of, again without needing to open a menu. 

 

I know there's a lot worse compared to marcos and I could go on with the Keyboards & Mouse sh*t but I shouldn't need too

 

Crossplay I think works well when it comes to certain genres, others not so much. Turn based games I don't see a problem with Crossplay, certain sandbox games I see it working decently, racing games I could see it working.

probably not? it feels way too late in this game's lifecycle to implement cross platform as a thing to sell people on it, and i doubt the game's bones are going to play nice on it. it feels like the kind of thing that's got to be in at launch (or at least planned at the time of) or not in there at all and i'm pretty sure in this case it's the latter

What makes you think that at the time VII will be released,  any "console" will still exsist next to a handful providers for game streaming? 🧐 Pabulum era.

For sure, but that'd be several years time, and didn't mention PC - that should be kept alone unless someone can prevent cheats or mods being used (and that won't happen because "hackers" are always one step ahead).

The closest thing to cross play I get is the fact that I'm a guy who plays a female character online.

GTA Online isn't going to be ending anytime soon according to the most recent reports, so not really.

 

Although it's a really fat chance regardless of when you ask.

Hopefully (and most likely) not. Maybe between the consoles (in a future title if anything), but leave the PC out of that. There are enough of bad skilled players, no need to add all the pad people. Besides, consoles would still be separated since most of those play with auto-aim... The only positive side of a pad is that all the kids using those can't easily spam.

Idk if it's been dealt with but the carnage in new CoD was hilarious, but got boring quickly. Pad people were (or still are) used to wipe the floor with.

On the positive note, player bases on each platform are big enough that no merges are necessary.

The best thing would be the freedom of choice. Just an extra menu like "Join mixed platform session" since (as I know) all platform using the same server, but if Im wrong there was plenty of times and money to solve this.

Another thing is the invite only/solo/crew session which is totally could be the players choice (as at public lobby) that they wanna play with "disadvantage" or not, because as I (as many others) could experienced so far,  the huge disadvantage is the lack of cross-play, not the keyboard_mouse which is can be use for xbox and ps4 as well. Modders do nothing to normal players, new session......

The game is more than 7 years old, dont you (and other cross-play-haters) think that enough time to develop an extra lobby for mixed platforms and for solo/invite/crew?

Nope, I don't think that will happen, ever. Imagine all the consoles-players crying their eyes out when they get owned hardcore by mouse/keyboard players.

Not to mention the framerates.

For the record, I am not a cross-play-hater, I love cross-play in racing/flying/non-fps games where you can play together with all consoles and PC. Difference between that and GTA Online is the dedicated servers instead of peer-to-peer, and the absence of hackers. If I come accross as a cross-play-hater, it's only because I think it should not happen in GTA Online only.

And yes, Rockstar has had plenty of time to implement it, but their shareholders are controlling them, and they don't think it is worth the investment, and would rather sell you new games.

Whether cross-play will be optional or not in GTA Online does not matter, it is the total lack of cheat protection on consoles that matters. You don't want to add cheating PC users in their sessions. I would support cross-play between Xbox One and PS4, but leave PC and old gen consoles out of it.

If the game actually made it onto the Nintendo Switch I could see that being some kind of feature that would be worth them adding but all these years and seeing they still haven't added the game to the system says to me I think they are done with trying to put GTA onto another system.

I think the last time Rockstar released one of their games on a Nintendo home console it would've been Table Tennis & Bully - prior to that the only one I can think of would be Smugglers Run Warzones.  (Of course, they have released GTA games on the handhelds over the years - including the original GTA, GTA2, GTA Advance and Chinatown Wars)

After hearing all the horror stories on PC I do not want cross platforms ever. Just F off with that sh*t exploits on PS4 is bad enough, I don't want to deal with actual modders.

Definitely something I'd do given the way R* treats PC gamers like crap and do so little to help, lol.

 

PS and Xbox I'd love but if PC is allowed to join, I stay well away from online in any game really.

 

Not that I'm bashing the PC players, just I'll never trust it.
