To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III, Rockstar has just announced its plans to release the game on both Apple’s iOS platform and Android.
The publisher plans to support the iPad 2 and the newly launched iPhone 4S, both of which carry hefty processing power in comparison to previous iterations.
“Grand Theft Auto III showed us the potential of open world games. It helped set the vision for the company, and we have been expanding on those possibilities with every game ever since,” said Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser in a press release.
Rockstar plans to exhibit a playable version of the game this coming weekend at the New York Comic Convention.
The game’s controls will be given a complete revamp for the mobile devices. I can only pray that the airplane controls aren’t as tedious as they were for the PC release almost a decade ago.
A full list of supported devices include:
Apple iOS Devices: iPad 2, iPhone 4S
Android Phones: Droid X2, HTC Evo 2, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Atrix, Samsung Galaxy S2
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
