Does GTA 5 support crossplay?
At the moment, GTA 5 does not support crossplay. This means PC players would only match with others who are on PC. Xbox and PS4 players would match with players on the respective platform.
A Reddit user who goes by the name u/BindaI explains the complication that may arise as a result of crossplay in GTA 5.
PS4 and XBox might work, but due to the way how PC has entirely different balancing at times (most obvious: PC players don't need to pay insurance when destroying other players vehicles), they'd still be on their own.
I wouldn't really count on it, however.
