During game development, many things are being cut or added at the last steps. There is not so many reasons, and most of them are following esthetic purpose, optimization purpose, or things that are not working properly (a la optimization purpose). F.ex. let's take interior of the house that can be seen from exterior. Is it look good on the distance, how much it stands out when being the only house with interior visible, how does it works when you enter it? Better just to cut it out to make the entire scene more seamless.

You can search on youtube about beta stuff, some dudes did a good job talking about it I believe.

gtadrive's post explains it perfectly. It's not just GTA San Andreas that cut many beta features and etc. Just take an example of such games like Team Fortress 2 or series like Half Life. Really big changes

The common misconception is that there was a "beta" GTA SA. There never was a "beta" GTA SA, there was a GTA SA that was being developed. And just like any other project that was being developed it changed during the production process for various reasons.

 

Just look at cars: a paper sketch usually looks badass, then they make a body only prototype and change it's shape for better air flow, then the engineers design a frame and change the length for strength, and finally it goes to the production line, and they use the headlights from another model to cut costs. It looks little like the original sketch, but it doesn't mean that at any point there was a fully functioning "beta" car.

 

So various GTA features were dropped because they were too difficult to implement, they didn't go well with the game, they were considered controversial, they caused problems during testing etc. New things were likewise were introduced for similar reasons.

When you're making a game, a project, or anything ever, some things just don't work so you remove them.

I suggest you to look at Youtube videos who primarly focus on cut beta content of GTA San Andreas. Best channel that I can recommend is Vadim M. Worth your time and most likely an answer to your question.
