Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas coming to iOS next month

It was inevitable, we suppose.

After the critical and commercial success of the iOS versions of GTA III and GTA: Vice City, it was only a matter of time before Rockstar got around to porting its first Los Angeles-inspired epic to iPhone and iPad.

Well, it turns out that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is set to tear up the App Store in December.

That's THIS December. Next month. Within four weeks.

Just like the other iOS ports in the crime sim series, GTA: San Andreas will feature contextual touchscreen controls. According to a press release from Rockstar, there will be no less than three different control variations for steering vehicles, and support for those new iOS controllers we've heard so much about.

Thankfully, the team has reportedly made the checkpointing on missions a bit more generous, presumably taking inspiration from GTA V's handy mid-mission checkpoints.

We're curious to see how Apple's hardware copes with GTA: San Andreas' enormous world map, which was by far the biggest of the last-generation GTA games.

As soon as we have a solid release date, you'll be the first to know.
