Events concerning the Grand Theft Auto series in 2013.
- Grand Theft Auto V was released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17.
- Grand Theft Auto Online was released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 1.

- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was released for mobile devices, with the iOS version being released on December 12, and the Android version being released on December 19.
- The events of Grand Theft Auto 2 could take place.
- Police records on the Grand Theft Auto 2 website are dated between 13/07/13 and 03/11/13. 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."
