Forum:GTA Chinatown Wars is non-canon.
Even though Rockstar havent officially said this yet (they never do state which are canon and which aren't) but it is obviously non-canon. it isn't realistic, Liberty City is basic and boring, and Rockstar Leeds just had a look at some names on the police database in GTA IV, found Huang Lee, and created a shit story around it. It is just a cash-in game.
Theres no way the next GTA game will reference CW ever happening, for Liberty City seen in GTA IV to be reduced to something like that is annoying.
it would nice to see Huang in a proper GTA game though, maybe as a friend and such. he sounds cool. Delo19xcrowbarx 07:22, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
You are wrong. Accept it. Chinatown Wars IS canon. Put it to bed.-- Tornmuscle 07:32, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
No, i am right when i say it is probably non-canon, not officially yet but still. What confirmation says it is canon?

Just so you know, Mr NT, the story you are so repulsed by was written by Dan Houser and David Bland. Dan Houser has been partly responsible for writing every GTA game since III, and Bland helped write the two Stories games. So it's not just R* Leeds mashing a story out of made up names on the database. Bluesboyjr 13:41, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
just because the game is shit doesnt mean its non-cannon . the only reason why they made chinatown wars is so it can have GTA IV era game on the portable consoles. what i want to know is why people are saying its non - cannon ,its got the same city and some characters. whats next people are going to be saying The Lost And Dammed and Ballad Of Gay Tony are non- cannon aswell . CMON PEOPLE!!! use your common sence.--Lozzy94 13:48, August 4, 2010 (UTC)
Chinatown wars does not have any GTA IV characters or relevance. When Rockstar wrote the story for GTA IV, both the TLAD and TBOGT were written into it for the DLC's, they were always planned from the start. Chinatown Wars was never planned into the GTA IV era when Rockstar wrote the full plot. CW is a spinoff and nothing more, the GTA IV era is next generation. I very much doubt that if Rockstar continue the GTA IV era into the next full game, they will bother mentioning CW.
i agree its a spin-off, but a lot of spin - offs are cannon .Also rockstar had plans for it thats why huang lee is on the data base with grand theft auto as a criminal charge. i think the grand theft auto criminal charge, i really dont think its a coinsidence that all the other protagonist have grand theft auto charged aswell.
