GTA V on Steam is a great option for players who want to play the game on their PC, and it’s also one of the easiest ways to get the game if you haven’t already purchased it. However, if you have an existing copy of GTA V on the Epic Games Store, and you want to transfer it to Steam, that’s not possible.
If you’ve already played through GTA V on your PC via the Epic Games Store, there’s no way to transfer your progress over to Steam (or any other platform). You’ll need to play through the game again from scratch.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t a problem with all games on the Epic Games Store. Some games are compatible with cross-platform saves, so if you buy them on both platforms, they’ll be able to share save data between them. For example, Borderlands 3 has cross-platform saves between PS4 and Xbox One (as well as PC), so if you own both versions of Borderlands 3, you’ll be able to use your character on either platform without having to start over.
