Grand Theft Auto Online: Crime World was a Grand Theft Auto title in development for PC around 1999. It was seemingly cancelled sometime around 2001 before GTA III saw release. The game was never heard from again after its brief and silent announcement in a gaming magazine. Almost a decade later, this idea would come to fruition with the introduction of Multiplayer in Grand Theft Auto IV, and later expanded upon in Grand Theft Auto Online.
- Had the game not been cancelled, it would have been the first fully online Grand Theft Auto title.
- While it was cancelled, it is possible they planned to make GTA III online instead of releasing this stand alone title, although the online play for GTA III was cut early in development.
