For the only visual rendition, see Las Venturas (3D Universe).

Las Venturas is one of the fictional locations featured in the Grand Theft Auto series. So far, it has only had one rendition, appearing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


The city also exists in the HD Universe, which started afresh in the current canon. It has been mentioned many times in Grand Theft Auto IV and The Ballad of Gay Tony, along with other locations from the GTA series and other Rockstar titles. As the HD Universe is apart from the old GTA games and follows a separate canon, it is possible that Rockstar will redesign the city in the same way they did with Liberty City and Los Santos if it is to make an appearance in a future GTA game. However, images from the earlier version of Las Venturas do appear in GTA IV, by way of the Venturas Poker Challenge TV program.

It is implied that Las Venturas is based on Las Vegas, Nevada. While Las Venturas was in the State of San Andreas (which is based on California) in its previous rendition, if it is to be done again, it could have its own state, based on Nevada, as during the Venturas Poker Challenge, Las Venturas is shown in a state similar to it.
