What year(s) is Grand Theft Auto IV taken place in? I've done a bit of research and wasn't able to find the time setting.

This could be interesting..

I reserved the GTA IV special edition for xbox 360. Any of you guys planning on buying or have already reserved it?

^ +1 I wonder the same thing. I assumed it was around 2000-2002.


Number 4 is the newest one, is it not?

Why would it be then?
#7
Because vice city was 86. san andreas was 92. they were released in 02 and 04 respectively.

it doesn't need to be present day. i think this one is though, if not a couple years in the future. i don't remember <_<

Yes, GTA 4 will be the latest one; it comes out on April 29th.

Vice City was set in 1986 and took a lot of stuff from 1980's American culture. It was released in 2002.

Hmm, setting it in present day/2000's would make sense..

I've got a feeling its early 00's.

Or present day.

I'm really not sure.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

Woah, i never realized. I always thought they were all modern day. But come to think of it, why would all the cars be so old in Vice City?

Yeah, sorry, it is possible that the new one won't be present time.
#14
Present day, read it in Game Informer I think. They're gonna make use of wireless internet, cellphones, and I think even some futuristic stuff.

Vice City had crappy graphics anyway..

It seems like the setting of GTA 4 could be predictable is Vice City was in the 80s and San Andreas in the 90s.. and then fill in the blank for 00s

They should make a GTA for the 1500s. It was give me teh lulz.

GTA3 was in the 2000s.

Vice City graphics weren't bad, they fit the 80s mood. But considering that's about 5 and a half years ago, they're pretty outdated.

if its in NYC, has anyone seen a screenshot of the NY skyline from the game?
we can narrow it down by looking for the WTC
look for WTC in NYC in GTA

It's not New York, but Liberty City is heavily based on New York.

It's set in New York city, right? From the teaser it looks like they completely copied NYC for the game. Would be cool.

well they call it liberty city but its based on NYC

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

GTA has always had semi dissapointing graphics, it always looks better before the game comes out, however it makes up for it with vast envoirnments and endless activities and fun. I think GTA 4 will be either now or a few years in the future due to the use of GPS systems, cellphones and internet. GTA III was like 2000 or 1999 i forgot it was supposed to be set like a year before it came out. i wonder what the soundtrack for IV will be.
