Events concerning the

Real World Events
The events of could take place.
Grand Theft Auto 2 Police records on the
Grand Theft Auto 2 website are dated between 13/07/2013 and 03/11/2013 . This, along with the game's futuristic setting indicates the game is taking place during  2013. However, the game's manual uses the phrase "three weeks into the future," and the website's clock is always set three weeks ahead of the current time — this puts forward the notion that the game takes place in an  unspecific time and place, fitting with the game's setting of " Anywhere, USA." In-game, radio host Johnny Riccaro mentions in the game that "the millennium's coming" and also mentions the Y2K bug, which would make the possibility that the game could also be set in 1999. The events of the
