During today’s Facebook Connect, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that Rockstar’s classic open-world game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is coming Oculus Quest 2.
While no footage of the VR port was shown, Oculus Quest 2 is no stranger to porting classic games and re-imagining them for VR. Oculus previously worked with Armature and Capcom to bring Resident Evil 4 to VR.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is set in the fictional southern California city and tells the story of the CJ, a framed man who returns to his old San Andreas neighborhood to save his family.
Like other Grand Theft Auto games, San Andreas is an open-world game where players can freely explore San Andreas and its neighboring areas. Facebook didn’t reveal details about how this open-world saga will be translated into VR.
