The events of Grand Theft Auto 2 take place.

  • Mock police records on the Grand Theft Auto 2 website are dated between 13/07/13 and 03/11/13.[1] 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 [2] — 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."

  3. "The world of Grand Theft Auto Online is set slightly before the events of GTA V, and so while it shares some of its experiences and it shares characters, the stats are all separate."
    Leslie Benzies, former president of Rockstar North (CVG Interview, 2013).
  4. The events of the mission It's a G Thing are mentioned in a old post at the very bottom of Lamar Davis' Lifeinvader page in Grand Theft Auto V.
  5. Jay Norris is still alive during the events of the GTA Online: Import/Export update, and he can purchase a vehicle cargo collection from the GTA Online Protagonist.
