I agree about GTA VC and VCS. You can clearly see that those games are set during the summer, but I think that VCS is actually set during August of 1984, because that's what it said in the manual. And I agree that San Andreas is set in December of 1992, because The Chronic was released in that date and two songs from the album are in the game. Also, it was snowing in LC in the introduction.

I read somewhere that San Andreas is set in late 1992. So I suppose that the date you posted is right.

I'd say either January-March 1992 or December 1992 since there's snow in LC at the time.

You're right. Since San Andreas is set in late 1992 according to many sources, I'd say it's set in December 1992.

I'd say that GTA V took place somewhere in Spring, reason being is that the weather isn't always sunny but it isn't always cold, the coldest you'll get is a fog or something, also GTA V's original release date was in Spring 2013.

 

Another reason is that there is snow in GTA Online in December, and GTA V's story takes place a few months after GTA Online.

I'd say it was a bit before Spring, since it's still snowy in the Midwest during the game.

VCS - August 1984
IV - Mid to late 2008
TLAD and TBOGT - Late 2008/early 2009

III - October 18, 2001 (common knowledge?)
VC - July 31, 1986 (The only GTA with damn near zero NPCs with long sleeves/sweaters)
SA - December 15, 1992 (Saint Marks is covered in snow and a couple months later LS Roits)
LCS - October 30, 1998 (states it in the manual)
VCS - August 24, 1984 (VCS manual states August '84)
IV - September 12, 2008 (damn near every npc and all customization options were winter wear with no snow)
TLAD - September 12, 2008 (same time as IV)
TBOGT - April/May 2009 (starts after the three leaf clover mission, months after Nikos arrival)
V - September 1, 2013 ( most NPCs are in sweaters/winter-ish gear and Yanton is blanketed in snow)

Overall, here are the dates the GTA games are set in at the start of the story.

GTA 3 - October 16, 2001
GTA VC - June 22, 1986
GTA SA - December 15, 1992 (It was snowy in LC in the introduction, and Dre's Chronic CD was released in that month of the year.)
GTA LCS - October 30, 1998 (The date is on the manual.)
GTA VCS - August 6, 1984
GTA 4 - September 22, 2008 (Just because it was released in April doesn't mean it's set in that month. It was chili in the storyline.)
GTA TLAD - October 2, 2008
GTA TBOGT - April 22, 2009
GTA 5 - November 3, 2013

Just how I see everything.

Well since the official dates aren't revealed in some of the games, we're just surmising based on the season and dates the songs were released.

Yeah, because Nuthin But a 'G' Thang came out in like late 1992.

A little late to the party, but as far as the HD Universe goes, IV would take place in early September-mid November. Most of the NPCs are bundled up in cold weather clothing, and I remember some of the trees having an orange color to them, while some having green. I would think that TBOGT ends in late-November.

V probably takes place from the beginning of August to the end of October. My reasoning is that there's signs around the map stating its August, and some areas show pumpkins.

As for GTAO, it could be at any time really, as far as canon goes.

Nah it's Spring. For V it's Spring. Those cherry blossoms don't bloom until then. And the northern Midwest gets snow until April, worst case scenario it's May. Same with New York but New York can get snow in November so SA was likely set in November 1992. IV, probably late September.

The pumpkins? The storefront saying "August sales"? There's even a calendar in Trevor's place with August still as the month. There's reasons for both of times, but I've seen more reasons for V to be in Autumn.

As for IV being in September, I can believe it. There's a lot of times it can be in.

When they can, it would be nice for Rockstar to have a seasonal feature in the next game they can.

We know Vice City and Vice City Stories are set during the summer based on the time of the game. GTA San Andreas is definitely set sometime in November or December 1992 since it was snowing in Liberty City. GTA 4 is set during the fall since you could see the characters' breath in the air when they speak.

Are you guys sure about VC being set in the summer? I always thought it was warm all year round in South Florida.

I think the time in-between IV's start and Thee Leaf Clover is two or three months at most. It makes more sense that the whole game takes place through late summer(?) and autumn because it never snows and the temperature and weather patterns remain the same.

 

Sort of? It's still comparatively chilly enough for many locals to want to wear sweaters in the colder months.

I always thought San Andreas was set during the fall of 1992 since the weather in that state was pretty humid. But now that 'I've watched the introduction and saw the snow in Liberty City, I believe that the game is set in winter of 1992, December to be exact.
