Learn about the Universe in GTA

The Grand Theft Auto World is a conceptual fictional world (or universe) consisting of the places shown in GTA games, such as, Liberty City, San Andreas, Vice City, Carcer City, London and others.

All the locations in the GTA III Era games must exist in the same fictional universe/world, since characters, storylines and brands cross between them, and in the whole there are no contradictions. Liberty City from GTA III is replicated almost identically in GTA Liberty City Stories, but set at a different time to GTA III to account for the differences. Likewise with GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories.

However in GTA IV, the new Liberty City is totally different to that shown in GTA III or GTA 1, so these games are assumed to take place in different universes.
