GTA Universes are the different fictional "universes" that GTA games are set in. They are different from eras in the sense that a game is in the same era as the most recent numbered game (ex. GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City are in the same era as GTA III) while universes are the different sequences of events that have happened in the games. The universes are named based on the visual quality in which the game is played. They are separated based on the same principle and the events that have taken place in the universe.

"...the “universes” are the worlds interpreted at different definitions, 2d, 3d and high definition..."
―Rockstar Games during a GTA III Q&A

GTA Universes are the different fictional "universes" that GTA games are set in. They are different from eras in the sense that a game is in the same era as the most recent numbered game (ex. GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City are in the same era as GTA III) while universes are the different sequences of events that have happened in the games. The universes are named based on the visual quality in which the game is played. They are separated based on the same principle and the events that have taken place in the universe.
