"...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.

There are currently three universes in the GTA series:

  • 2D Universe
  • 3D Universe
  • High Definition (HD) Universe





2D UniverseEdit

There are a total of four games (including two DLC's) that take place in the 2-D Universe:

This universe has more games than any of the other universes. It has also sold more copies (over 57 million) than the others. GTA III introduced a breakthrough in gaming by giving people a 3rd person view of a 3D world that they could explore. Every GTA after that has used the 3rd person view.

High Definition UniverseEdit

The High Definition Universe is the most recent GTA universe in the series.
