One of the top-selling games of all time for the PlayStation 2 is heading to Android and iOS later this year. Rockstar Games on Friday announced Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will be coming to mobile devices in honor of the game’s 10 year anniversary on October 29th. Vice City was originally released in October 2002 for the PlayStation 2 game console as the sixth game in Rockstar’s controversial cop-killing and chaos causing open world Grand Theft Auto series. Along with featuring native high-resolution graphics, both ports are said to contain several enhancements unique to the iOS and Android platforms.
“Grand Theft Auto: Vice City gave players the freedom of a massive open-world in one of the most iconic and vibrant settings ever realized in a game,” said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games. “It was a defining moment in the series and we’re delighted to be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year with a stunning, updated version for phones and tablets.”
Rockstar did not announce a release date or say whether the game will be available for Windows Phone 8 devices in the future.
