Official: Grand Theft Auto coming to iPhone
Apple gadget embraces virtual underworld
Gaming on the iPhone is about to get a lot more violent. Rockstar has confirmed that the Grand Theft Auto videogame series is coming to the handset.
Rockstar plans to release the Chinatown Wars version of the game on the iPhone - no great surprise as the edition has already been ported onto similarly small-screen consoles the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS.
Chinatown Wars will also be launched for the iPod Touch, Rockstar confirmed.
Sam Houser, Rockstar’s founder, described the title as an “incredibly ambitious version of Liberty City”.
Both the iPhone and iPod Touch versions of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be available this Autumn.
