I'm guessing with the success of GTA 3 Anniversary, they'll do a Vice City Anniversary for 2012. With GTA V expected in 2012, I'm thinking they'll be a mobile tie-in coming 2013. I'd expect Sony to put heavy pressure on securing it as a PS Vita exclusive initially, but just like Chinatown Wars, I have no doubt it would come to iOS and they'll probably have this in mind from the beginning so will design with both platforms in mind. Interestingly, the 2011 Apple A5 with it's dual core ARM Cortex A9 CPU + SGX543MP2 is basically half the PS Vita's quad core ARM Cortex A9 + SGX543MP4+. Granted PS Vita gets some speed advantage from close-to-metal hardware access, but a 2013 GTA V universe mobile title launching first on the PS Vita wouldn't have to sacrifice much visually to run on a 2012 Apple A6 and could potentially run better on a 2013 Apple A7 than on the PS Vita. The advantages of steadily progressing hardware vs. stable console specs.
2014 could then be San Andreas Anniversary, for a basically yearly mobile GTA release schedule.
