Before the release of Grand Theft Auto 2, there were features that were changed or removed from the final product. These include vehicle design changes, vehicle removal, and changes to weapons.



  • In the promo movie & inside the game files, districts by the names of Chernobyl Docks, Romanova[1], Azimuth[2], Barking[3], and Kyabetsu[4] were going to be in the game, but they were removed. Also, Arbo[5] and Gonad[6] were actually referenced by name in the police dispatch instead of being called "South Central".

Radios and songs

  • Ridiculous FM - a progressive rock radio with a single song that would have lasted 20 minutes.
  • Rev. Rooney & The Rocksta Choir's "God Bless All The Universe" was going to have more profanity.
