Facebook Connect is already off to a great start with the announcement of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas coming to Oculus Quest 2, although no release date has been confirmed at this stage.
Literally, nothing else has been announced about the game, not even a snippet of in-game footage. The Oculus website has the following blurb, however:
“Today at Connect, we announced that the Rockstar Games classic Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is in development for Quest 2. Get a new perspective on Los Santos, San Fierro, and Las Venturas as you experience (again or for the first time) one of gaming’s most iconic open worlds. This is a project many years in the making, and we can’t wait to show you more of it.”
