However, please note that this data transfer is a one-way transfer, and that saves and progression are not cross-platform. While you can continue playing on the PS4 version and transfer the data to the PS5 version, you will not be able to transfer data from the PS5 version back to the PS4 version, so pick the version you wish to play on wisely.
