The GTA San Andreas VR was first unveiled in 2021 during the Meta’s Connect 2021 live stream event. The game was going to be featured for playing on Meta Quest 2.

Also, at the event, Zuckerberg claimed that Oculus has been working on the game’s VR implementation for many years. Due to this, many assumed that it could be launched anytime soon.

However, ever since Connect 2021, no noteworthy developments related to the game have been reported.


Meta Quest 2 and GTA San Andreas VR debut

According to reports (1,2,3,4,5), some Meta Quest 2 owners are concerned because of the consistent delay in the game’s release.

The GTA San Andreas VR is being developed by Video Games Deluxe for the Meta Oculus Quest 2. This studio also released the popular AAA title ‘LA Noire: The VR Case Files’ last year.

The San Andreas fans are anxious regarding the game’s release and have taken to the web forums to express their views on the same.


A user believes that Meta is doing a pivot and moving some of their pending projects over to Quest 3. Doing so will help the company benefit a lot as they won’t have to deal with any hardware constraints, like in the case of Quest 2.

Another user is of the view that the pending titles may be released with compatibility for Quest 2, as the device was a commercial success.


Is it still happening? meta announced it like a year or two ago same time as among us vr and its still not here, i just want more info

Is it just universally agreed that it’ll never see the light of day? Haven’t heard jack about it since when zucc announced it

Others assume that the development of San Andreas VR will probably be outsourced to a different studio, as was the case with the remastered version.

Some are still hopeful that Meta Quest 3 will debut with the game

Quest 2 owners (1,2,3,4,5,6) are still hopeful that the GTA San Andrea’s VR implementation will be released with the launch of the Meta Quest 3.

Some believe that the game will be a Quest 3 exclusive as this will help them easily push sales of the next headset.

A user says that the boost in hardware with the Quest 3 will allow for better textures and a smoother gameplay experience to be rendered to GTA fans.


GTA is going to need the additional processing power of the Quest 3. Highly doubtful it will be on Quest 2.

Hope it’s on Quest 3.

We do hope that GTA San Andreas makes its debut in VR with the release of Quest 3 later this year.

Until then, we’ll keep tabs on the latest developments and update this article as and when something noteworthy comes up.
