Facade (Stylized as FACADE) is a computer applications company in the HD Universe appearing in both Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V. In GTA IV one of their products "Wing It" is advertised on the in-game radio. In GTA V they have a slightly larger role and are featured on the BAWSAQ and the LCN as FAC. A Facade is a flashy object that is usually empty on the inside, this could suggest that the company produces products that are all style and no substance.
The company is likely based on Microsoft due to both companies being in the computer applications industry featuring four squares in their logo, and a mobile OS user interface design similar to that of Windows' "Metro" UI. Also, the design of Facade's computer operating system bears an uncanny resemblance to Windows 7.
- Trevor Philips' phone is made by Facade.
- Jackson Skinner, according to Lester, is the head of product development for Facade. He is killed in The Vice Assassination by Franklin under orders of Lester.
- Facade is the name given to the frontal part of houses, where windows are usually located, proving that Facade may be some kind of pun for Windows.
- Façade is the word given to someone who tries to act like something they're not, like a woman who gets bashed by her partner and tries to pretend everything is fine. It is also a song by the band Disturbed.
