Almost a decade after it originally hit store shelves, Grand Theft Auto III will finally see its debut on the Mac, according to a surprise reveal by Rockstar. But in even more exciting news, Rockstar says GTA III won't ship as a standalone product. It will instead be bundled in the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy pack, which includes Mac versions of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
This news comes via a FAQ column on Rockstar's Facebook page, and as a result of the unusual means of this announcement, no substantial details, including price, were dished out. The studio mentioned that more information will be provided via a "proper" reveal at a later date and that plans are in place to get the game out "later this year."
I know this is a vibrant world filled with adults who want to wear diapers or dance on video with teddy bears, but I find it hard to believe that there's a single Mac user who's been refusing to purchase the GTA classics until they appeared natively on that platform. But then, so many Mac users are running on laptops that these older games might be just the ticket to run on lesser hardware.
