Grand Theft Auto III Will Go On An App Store Killing Rampage Next Week!

Grand Theft Auto III Will Go On An App Store Killing Rampage Next Week!

We heard it was coming, but now, we’ve got a release date: Grand Theft Auto III is coming to iOS next week!

Rockstar’s genre-defying 3D open world game Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary Edition is scheduled to drop next Thursday on the App Store.

Not every iOS device will be supported, though. You need an iOS device with an A-series chip, so that includes both iPads, the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and 4th generation iPod touch.

The price? A totally reasonable $5. Heck, that’s not just reasonable… it’s a downright steal.

I’ve got a coast-to-coast flight that day, so I guess I know what I’ll be doing. Let’s hope that from here, we see Vice City and San Andreas come to iOS… open world havoc just doesn’t get better.

    This looks like it has to be a game I play on the iPad.  All those controls would just be cramped on a 3.5″ screen.   Too bad the iPhone/iTouch isn’t a 4″ screen.  The added real estate would be a little nicer

    bring on vice city this is brilliant news! GTAIII should open up what games can do on iOS devices, there are only a few at the moment, even tho the graphics are 10 years old I think they will look great on these devices. the controls look simple enough too.

    Why GTA 3? We’re up to GTA 5 next year. I can understand going back to the iconic days when GTA went to 3D and escaped the 2D aerial realm, but GTA 4 or the sequels would be well suited for the processor I think.
