Oculus, the virtual reality company owned by Facebook, has revealed that it is currently working on bringing the classic Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to its Quest 2 device.
This news comes by way of Facebook’s identity-changing livestream today, where the company is expected to announce its new name. During the stream, it was revealed that Oculus is working on a “built-for-VR version” of the famed GTA.
“Today at Connect, we announced that the Rockstar Games classic Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is in development for Quest 2,” an Oculus blog post reads. “Get a new perspective on Los Santos, San Fierro, and Las Venturas as you experience (again or for the first time) one of gaming’s most iconic open worlds.”
Oculus says this project has been “many years” in the making and that it’s excited to reveal more, but more was not revealed today. There weren’t any screenshots of what the VR perspective in San Andreas might look like, nor were any details shared about whether or not this would be a port of the classic game to VR, a port of the upcoming remaster, or a complete remake.
This news comes hot off the heels of Resident Evil 4’s Oculus Quest 2 VR release, which was well reviewed, including here at Game Informer where we gave it an 8.75 out of 10.
While waiting to learn more about this VR version of San Andreas, catch up on news of the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition coming out soon, which includes a remaster of San Andreas. Be sure to read up on all the changes and improvements coming to that trilogy remaster after that.
