Trivia

  • The Rockstar North logo appears several times in game; for example, in GTA San Andreas it can be seen on the parachute pickup, on the casing of Let's Get Ready to Bumble arcade machines and on a Hotring Racer.
  • One of the missions given to players in Mafiya Work or Team Mafiya Work multiplayer games in Grand Theft Auto IV references Rockstar North's efforts researching New York City for the development of the game's rendition of Liberty City. The players' client and boss, Konstantin Petrovic, calls to inform that a team of researchers from a "Scottish" video game company are in Liberty City to research the city for the purpose of developing a video game. The players are tasked to pick up the developers so that they have a better understanding of criminal activities; in reality, they simply serve as muscle protecting the player, shooting at any enemies.
