Hunger Games fans have just eight more months to wait: the as yet untitled third and final book in Suzanne Collins’s dystopian fantasy trilogy will be released in English worldwide on August 24, 2010. An audio version from Scholastic Audio will be released simultaneously.

In other news, the trade paperback edition of the first book in the trilogy, The Hunger Games, will be released on July 6, 2010.

The Hunger Games, released in September 2008, has 800,000 copies in print; book two, Catching Fire, came out this past September and has more than 750,000 copies in print. Foreign rights for the books have been sold into 37 territories to date, and Lionsgate has optioned movie rights.

The title for book three will be announced early next year.
