Facebook (now known simply as ‘Meta’) has been slowly cornering the VR market with the focus on their Oculus Quest headsets (now known as ‘Meta Quest’). After recently porting over an old and beloved Capcom title to VR, the company now has their sights on the next big VR port: GTA San Andreas.

This new version of what I think is one of the greatest games ever made will offer players an entirely new way to experience this iconic open world in virtual reality,” said Mark Zuckerberg during the recent Facebook Connect livestream. And according to a blog post by Oculus, the project has been “many years in the making.

We don’t have any details yet on gameplay, nor any screenshots or trailers unfortunately. So it’s unclear whether it will be the original San Andreas or the newly remastered version in the upcoming Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - Definitive Edition, though that is most likely the case.

We also don’t know what kind of VR port it will be, like whether it will be first-person or include motion controls, and we have no idea when it will be released. Though it is highly likely to be an Oculus exclusive title. Thankfully, Oculus has listened to feedback, and will be dropping the required Facebook login on Oculus VR headsets.

What do you think? Are you interested in a GTA San Andreas VR port? WHat kind of VR port are you hoping for? What would be the first thing you do to experience San Andreas in VR? And which other Rockstar/GTA games would you like to see officially in VR? Let us know!

Are you interested in a VR port for GTA San Andreas?

I own a Quest 2, rarely use it but enjoyed the Star Wars games on it.


What GTA: San Andreas concerns, I'm intrigued but I'm not sure if the graphics and gameplay will pull it off in VR.


Wait and see...

UE 4. If they went to the older version, the graphics would at least have some consistency.

Saw a RE4 VR stream that was hype but the way to capture was so janky (with remote destop) and it was dropping frames (poor ARM chip was probably screaming). On a desktop set up its probably perfect. Lizard man is trowing around money for the "meta-verse" what ever the hell that is...luckily its only timed.

How is Alyx exclusive? You can pretty much use any VR headset with it.

You can play alyx with every somewhat capable headset out there, they specifically implemented a lot of settings to make it work for as many people as possible.
