Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas VR looks to be made by former LA Noire developers

Australian studio Video Games Deluxe will reportedly be the team behind last week’s surprise announcement of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas VR.

Upload VR calls attention to a LinkedIn post from the Sydney, Australia based studio seemingly confirming the appointment. “As announced at the Facebook Connect event we are beavering away on one of the world’s best loved games for VR. We are heavily recruiting for this and other projects.”

As a studio, Video Games Deluxe has an interesting history. Former Team Bondi creative director Brendan McNamara founded the studio following Bondi’s closure. Team Bondi were responsible for 2011’s L.A. Noire, but were sadly put into liquidation just a few months following the game’s launch.

Six years later McNamara’s new company worked with Rockstar to rebuild a specific version of the game for VR. LA Noire: The VR Case Files launched back in 2017 on PC VR headsets followed by a PSVR version a few months later.

If true then, it certainly seems like the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas VR project is in trustworthy hands. The project was a surprise announcement last week during the Facebook Connect conference. There’s no specific release date yet, but it will be an Oculus Quest 2 (or Meta Quest) exclusive.
