As part of the 10 year anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III, Rockstar Games today announced that it will release iOS and Android versions of the classic Rockstar North-created title later this fall.

The game will be made available for specific, more powerful smartphone and tablet devices, including iPad 2, iPhone 4S, the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Grand Theft Auto III was released for PlayStation 2 on October 22, 2001, and holds a 97 Metacritic rating.

Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games, explained, "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."

Earlier this year, analysts estimated that Grand Theft Auto V, the next in the series, could sell more than 25 million copies worldwide in its first year on sale.

That's pretty cool, I don't get how it will work with a touch screen though.
