GTA San Andreas VR Is Officially Happening on the Oculus Quest 2

GTA San Andreas

GTA San Andreas is coming back better than ever very soon, as part of the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Definitive Edition, but a separate version specifically designed for the Oculus Quest 2 Virtual Reality device was announced yesterday at Connect 2021. We didn't really learn anything else, other than the project has been in the works for several years; that makes us hopeful for a reveal sooner than later.

Anyway, Oculus is clearly trying to repeat the recent success of Resident Evil 4 VR, remaking an all-time classic from the PlayStation 2 era for its popular Quest 2 VR platform. GTA San Andreas is one of the highest-rated and best-selling games of all time, only surpassed by the more recent Grand Theft Auto V, so it's bound to attract some players.
