Can You Transfer Your Online Character to PC from Console in Red Dead Redemption 2?

The short and sad answer is: no, you can’t. There’s no option to transfer your online character from Red Dead Online on PlayStation 4 and / or Xbox One to PC. Everybody has to start from square one. I’m not sure why Rockstar have decided to do this. It could be in order to have a level playing field on PC, since the developers have no plans to introduce cross-play to Red Dead Online. Then again, they let you transfer characters in GTA V, so who knows. Bottom line, you cannot transfer your Red Dead Online from PS4 / Xbox One to PC.
