What's the source for 2013 being the year in which GTA2 is set? I don't remember ever hearing the year referred to in-game. --MattyDienhoff 15:53, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

There is no source and no confirmation that GTA 2 is set in 2013. The game was set in the near future, which may be 2013, although it could be any year. However, 2013 is mentioned on the GTA 2 website, as dates for journal entries and for police records. A-Dust 15:57, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! --MattyDienhoff 16:02, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Matty is right - this needs to be explained somewhere on the wiki. It isn't common knowledge, and it isnt obvious, so we should explain why we believe it to be that year. Funnily enough, it isn't mentioned on the GTA 2 page except in the infobox. Gboyers talk 19:36, 7 January 2009 (UTC)


In rockstars website, the police records show most of these people and the date is written in DD/MM/YY, an example is 13/07/13, so either they somehow made records of people before they did a crime, or obviously, it takes place in 2013!

Yet, in the same website, it shows a clock which shows the current time and the time three weeks from now.

Also, the game's manual says GTA2 takes place three weeks into the future. There's not enough proof that the game takes place in 2013. It could just as easily take place in 1999. Kevin70 12:01, January 23, 2010 (UTC)
