Yep, it looks as though this fall Android and iOS devices owners will be getting the ever popular Grand Theft Auto III from Rockstar games. Yeah there’s no official release date yet, but this fall is all it says. Something to look forward to I guess. It will be nice to have a decent game to play on my Android tablet. To celebrate the 10th anniversary they’ve also announced a contest and several limited edition items in the Rockstar store as well.

Rockstar Games is proud to announce the 10th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III on October 22, 2011. The anniversary is a landmark moment for the Grand Theft Auto series and Rockstar Games. The release of Grand Theft Auto III in 2001 was a pivotal step in the series’ path to become one of the biggest entertainment properties. In conjunction with the celebration, Rockstar will release Grand Theft Auto III for select new generation iOS and Android devices in the fall. A full list of devices is available at www.rockstargames.com/newswire.

Mobile versions of the game will be available to play at the 2011 New York Comic-Con from October 14-16, 2011. Attendees of the show will be able to tour the Grand Theft Auto III gallery featuring the game’s signature art, and will also have the opportunity to win special anniversary edition Grand Theft Auto III and Rockstar Games merchandise. For those unable to attend, the Rockstar Warehouse (www.rockstarwarehouse.com) is relaunching today, where the special anniversary edition items will be available for purchase throughout October.

Beginning today, the limited-edition action figure of Grand Theft Auto III lead character, Claude, will be available for pre-order through the Rockstar Warehouse. The action figure will be on sale on October 20. The fully articulated 1:6 scale Claude figure comes dressed in his original attire of cargo pants and a bomber jacket, and is also supplied with his iconic Liberty City Prison-issued jumpsuit. The Claude figure is equipped with an arsenal of classic weapons from Grand Theft Auto III, including a bat, knife, grenades, pistol, sniper rifle, and assault rifle. Rockstar Social Club members can enter to win one of three Claude action figures through October 16 by visiting www.rockstargames.com/socialclub*.

Grand Theft Auto III was originally released in October 2001 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. It was the first three-dimensional, open-world Grand Theft Autotitle and introduced players to the fictitious Liberty City. The game was released to critical and commercial success and is widely credited as one of the most influential video games of all time. Upon its release in 2001, Grand Theft Auto III delivered cinematic levels of immersion, an innovative approach to open-ended gameplay and an unprecedented fusion of gaming and popular culture.
