Rockstar Games on GTA San Andreas for Windows Phone: ‘Coming soon’

Back at the end of November, Rockstar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was headed to iOS, Android and Windows Phone in the near future. The revamped popular game going mobile was a big deal, as anything GTA these days rakes in the money.

Since that announcement, we’ve seen San Andreas arrive of iOS and Android, though Windows Phone is still MIA. Some of you have perceived this when making off-topic comments on our articles, in some strange voodoo ritual on our site.

The good news is that GTA: San Andreas is still coming. The bad news is that’s about all we can say on the matter. On the official site for Rockstar Games, they have left a pinned comment on the top of the article that keeps it short and simple:

“Hey guys, it's great to see so much excitement for the release of San Andreas on mobile. Please note that it's also currently available for Android, and please stay tuned for the Windows Phones version release coming soon.”

The game arrived on Android only on December 20th and it arrived on iOS on December 12th. On both platforms it runs for $6.99 and reviews so far have been favorable. Unfortunately, there’s no firm date for Windows Phone and with only a few days left in 2013, there’s no telling if and when it will happen. It could be later today, it could be in early January.

For now, you’ll just have to sit submissively until Rockstar Games pushes the publish button.

Now, feel free to comment away and get it all out of your system…
