LONDON – APRIL 29: A young man plays Grand Theft Auto IV on the game’s day of release on April 29, 2008 in London, England. The game designed for the Playstation 3 was in high demand and sold out in stores across London during its first day of sale.
Kotaku further suggested that the VR version of the “San Andreas” is likely to be based on the remastered version of the classic console game that was first released by Rockstar Games way back on Oct. 26. 2004.
The remastered version of the said “GTA” title is apparently a part of a bundle, which also remastered other flavors of the franchise, such as the “Vice City” and the “GTA III.”
The collection of the classic “GTA” gaming titles is scheduled to see the light of day on Nov. 11.
It is worth noting that “GTA” games have repeatedly received multiple VR mods for years now.
However, as these releases are not officially from the developers of the iconic franchise, it is not the best playing experience due to tons of compatibility issues.
That said, the official VR version of the “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” will be the first of its kind, which its fans have been looking forward to for years.
