The follow-up to Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. This time around, developer Rockstar North and publisher Rockstar take players to San Andreas, California. The choice of San Andreas goes back to the original 2D game Grand Theft Auto, which featured a three-stage structure, offering the levels Liberty City, Vice City and San Andreas. San Andreas was the second area players moved to as they progressed through the quest. Expected to feature a look into Chinese and Mexican gang life around San Andreas, the anticipated third-person action game is slated to be released exclusively for PlayStation 2 in October 2004.
