GTA: Vice City Coming To iOS This Fall
The touch-controlled ports, which Rockstar says will "[bring] the full experience to mobile devices, featuring native high-resolution graphics and several enhancements unique to the iOS and Android platforms," will be available "later this fall." Last year, Rockstar highlighted the 10th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto 3 in the same way, with updated versions for iOS and Android that launched in mid-December.
Originally released on PlayStation 2 in October 2002, Vice City is regarded by many fans of Rockstar as one of the highest points ever touched by the series. With a satirical look at Miami in the 80's, Vice City went on to become one of the best episodes of GTA thanks to a mix of "open world" gameplay and engaging plot.
Last year, Rockstar brought Vice City's predecessor, GTA III, to iOS devices, but hasn't updated the game for the iPhone 5 and Retina iPad yet. Hopefully the port of Vice City will be natively optimized for Apple's latest devices. According to Rockstar, the game will feature "native high-resolution graphics and several enhancements unique to the iOS and Android platforms".
