Take-Two Interactive's Rockstar Games division has announced that it will publish Grand Theft Auto III for the PC in May. The game was previously released in October on the Sony PlayStation 2, and it has since won numerous awards for its innovation and groundbreaking design, including GameSpot's number-one spot on the 2002 Game Developers Choice Awards. The game has also been a commercial success, selling more than 2 million copies in the US and becoming the best-selling PlayStation 2 game since the console's launch in October 2000.

"It is an honor to work on the Grand Theft Auto games," said Les Benzies, development director for Rockstar. "The PlayStation 2 version was a terrific achievement for us and now we're looking forward to maximizing the game's potential for the PC. We know that there is an enormous, avid fan base out there that has waited patiently for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto III. The final product will blow them away."

Grand Theft Auto III is scheduled for release in May. We've posted some new screenshots from the PC game in the gallery above. For more information, take a look at our full review of the PlayStation 2 game and visit the official Grand Theft Auto III Web site.
