Rockstar confirmed this rumor today through a posting on their support site. “GTA: San Andreas on the Xbox Marketplace will be available again for purchase beginning October 26th, 2014, through Games on Demand. This version features 720p resolution, enhanced draw distance, and Achievement support.”

If you purchased the game previously, Rockstar notes: “The Games on Demand version of San Andreas is not compatible with the Xbox Originals version. Save files will not transfer from Xbox Originals. Owners of the Xbox Originals version will still have access to the old version on their consoles and through their download history, with the option to purchase the new version to experience the added features on a new save file.”

The original story appears below.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas may soon be re-released for Xbox 360, a new set of Achievements suggests. Developer Rockstar Games has not announced a new version of the game for Xbox 360, but Xbox Achievements has posted a new list of achievements that seem to indicate a re-release is in the works.

In addition, the Xbox Originals version of San Andreas is oddly no longer available to download for Xbox 360–though it remains available to buy for PlayStation 3. On top of that, October 2014 marks the game’s tenth anniversary, which would be a fitting time for such a re-release, if it were to happen.

San Andreas was released in October 2004 for PlayStation 2, though the game has since come to platforms such as Xbox, PC, Mac, and various mobile devices.

We have contacted Rockstar for comment, and will update this story with anything we hear back.

Grand Theft Auto V comes to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 18. The PC version is scheduled to launch in January 2015. The open-world game has already shipped more than 34 million copies.

The latest Sid Meier game, Civilization: Beyond Earth, launches later this week exclusively for PC. Mac and Linux players won’t get to play right out of the gate, but Aspyr Media announced today that Beyond Earth will be available for those platforms through Steam and on Apple’s Mac App Store sometime “this holiday season.”

Mac and Linux players can preorder a Steam code for Beyond Earth today through Aspyr’s GameAgent.com. Preordering will net you the Exoplanets Map Pack as a free bonus.

According to Aspyr, a prolific developer of Mac games, the Mac and Linux versions of Beyond Earth will “retain the same features and gameplay as the Windows PC version, while also offering cross-platform multiplayer via Steam.”

You can follow Aspyr’s progress on the Mac and Linux versions of Beyond Earth through a special “Dev Diary” series at blog.gameagent.com.

This is not the first time Aspyr Media has teamed up with Firaxis Games and 2K to bring a Sid Meier game to Mac. The developer was also behind the Mac versions of Civilization III, IV , and V.

For more on Beyond Earth, be sure to watch the game’s impressive intro cinematic (above), and then check out our previous coverage of the upcoming strategy game. Just yesterday, 2K announced that the Windows PC version is now available to pre-load, and that you can play Civilization V for free until October 23.

Evolution Studios, the games developer that has been working frantically to solve the server problems that has marred the release of Driveclub, says the free version of the game will be available as soon as possible.

Prior to the release of the PlayStation 4 racing game, Evolution and Sony had agreed to release a free abridged version of the game to PS Plus subscribers. However, due to major server problems affecting the game, coupled with the likelihood that a surge of new players would make matters worse, Sony decided to postpone the PS Plus edition.

But on Monday Evolution Studios claimed it had begun to gain ground in restoring full online services for the racing title, and four days later it has released another update (1.04) which it hopes will bolster online stability even further.

“More servers and new upgrades are still coming online hour-by-hour, so we expect improvements to server connectivity and reliability for everyone,” the studio wrote on its Facebook page.

“Essential diagnostics are still running periodically (for the next 12 hours) to help us continue to improve server performance,” it added.

“We are still also working hard to get the PS Plus Edition of Driveclub out as soon as possible and hope to update you on this soon.”

The studio has apologised on several occasions for the downtime, and hasn’t ruled out compensating those affected by the problems.
