Although the publisher currently has no plans to utilize the new gadget, he believed that several potential issues, such as motion sickness, have already been addressed. Strauss Zelnick also added that he is “encouraged by anything that gets people more engaged with interactive entertainment” when talking about the virtual reality headset technology. You can find a set of “GTA 5” screens in the slideshow to the left of this article and his comments below:

Oculus Rift was a big smash and wonder at CES--and our folks were very impressed with it. It remains to be seen what we can do with it, but [Oculus] has already addressed some of the big challenges (such as users getting motion sick) that it faced early on. ... I'm encouraged by anything that gets people more engaged with interactive entertainment.

One of the video games that could take advantage of the Oculus Rift is the rumored PC port of “GTA 5.” Although Rockstar Games may not update the open-world action-adventure video game to support the virtual reality headset, hardcore fans will most likely released custom mods for the device.

Sony Computer Entertainment is also speculated to be working on a similar device to the Oculus Rift on the PS4. The company is expected to announce the virtual reality headset for the next-generation system sometime in the near future.

“Grand Theft Auto 5” on the PS3 and Xbox 360 was made available in 2013. Take-Two Interactive has not yet announces a potential port of “GTA 5” to other systems like the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
