Grand Theft Auto III Coming to Dual-Core Android and iOS Models

Rockstar Games became one of the most talked-about studios of the past decade thanks to the runaway success of its Grand Theft Auto titles. When the series made the leap to 3D with Grand Theft Auto III, it redefined the sandbox style of gameplay, captivating players with its vast, intricate world. Now, ten years later, Rockstar will be shrinking that world down to fit on a smaller screen, announcing plans to release GTA III for select Android and iOS devices.

When we say “select”, we mean it; the list of supported smartphones is a short and exclusive one. If you don’t have a dual-core handset, don’t count on being able to play GTA III. Compatible Androids include the Galaxy S II, Droid X2, Optimus 2X, and Motorola Atrix (The HTC Evo 2 is also mentioned – future phone or typo?). At least that gives Android users some options – the iOS version of the game will support only the iPad 2 and the new iPhone 4S; the original iPhone 4 just isn’t up to snuff.

There’s already been one release from the GTA world on smartphones with Chinatown Wars on the iPhone, but that’s a port of a mobile edition of GTA, rather than the full GTA experience from consoles. GTA III will arrive for Android and iOS sometime this fall.
