I doubt it. Imagine how many "Claudes" are out there, and imagine all the people with the last name "speed"

They are not the same person. The only thing that's connecting them is the name which was recycled by R*.

Claude is not mute, he just doesn't talk. But I don't think they're the same person.

I never believed they were. Did anyone think they were in 2001 before Claude was given a name? I mean it's like saying EL Burro (drug dealer from CTW) and EL Burro from GTA III are the same.

 

Just stupid.

Does the last name "Speed" exist? I never saw a person with the name "Speed".

Scott Speed. An American race driver. It's certainly not a common last name though.

Hard to say. We all know the Claude in GTA 2 has the last name "Speed" (probably named after the movie "Speed" with Keanu Reeves), and the Claude in GTA III isn't known to have a last name. However, there is a rare GTA III desktop wallpaper featuring artwork of Claude, and he's referred to as "Claude Speed" as in GTA 2.

What did you expect from a game released in 2001? GTAIV-style HD graphics?

Artwork is rarely a true representation of the in game character. Toni's GTA III artwork makes him look like Joe Pesci. wow.gif

What about Salvatore Leone? His artwork looks NOTHING like this in-game rendition. He's too fat and he lacks a mustache. It may have been based on a beta model or something. mercie_blink.gif

Yeah I never knew who the fat guy was in the artwork, until to my shock I read that it was supposed to be Salvatore.

Although when you think about it with each game the artworks have been getting closer to the in game characters.

 

GTA III was the first GTA in 3D after all I guess. Its artwork is much more cartoony than in game.

Money Over Bullshit

Who better to answer this question than Rockstar themselves.. they say of Claude:

 

 

He’s a bank robber with a noisy and psychotic girlfriend. More than that, it is hard to say. Definitely a drifter, probably from the west coast, new to Liberty City. Surname may or may not be Speed.

 

They also said in a seperate article that although they can't confirm wether or not the two are the same person it is unusual that there would be two guys with the same exact name or something along those lines.. I'm struggling to find a link to the article however confused.gif

I'm pretty sure it was in the one where they were talking about Darkel. It was def. something to do with the 10th anniversary.

Just stupid.

He had a name in 2001, he had a name in GTA 2 in the 90's....

 

They might not be directly the same person, but I at least think they are alternate realities of the same person....kinda like how batman has a million versions of himself....Claude has a couple.

 

Although if Rockstar did want the two characters to be the exact same guy, then I'm OK with that as well as they do fit together.

 

As for El Burro...yeah this time it's two different guys...BUT El Burro as in GTA 3 is still the same one as in GTA 1 though....so I'm sure that if Rockstar do want to re-use characters as well as names...they can...and have. Lazlow is another example of him appearing in GTA 4 as an alternate reality version of the one in the GTA 3 era. So alternate reality versions, or the exact same character....they have been re-used...all be it not very often I will admit.

He's never referred to as "Claude" in GTA III though. IMO R* gave him the name Claude in SA to mess with our minds. Why is he only given a first name and not a last?

 

Though I undertsand what you mean about alternative realities.

Irrational

The poll results are a big FAIL.

 

 

“Hello, I just want to know if Claude Speed (GTA 2) and Claude (GTA III) are the same person. So, are they the same person? Anyway, thanks for all fun you guys are giving me with these games, I'm a BIG FAN of the Grand Theft Auto series and Red Dead Redemption!” - received via Mouthoff

 

Probably. It seems very likely but it’s also possible that there are just a lot of angry silent car thieves called Claude out there.

Source.

 

 

He's never referred to as "Claude" in GTA III though.

He is called "Claude" on the GTA III game files and is called "Claude Speed" on his official artwork.

I've always thought that they are different people. I dont see why people dont realise the fact that there will be more than 2 Claude's in the world. I havent played GTA2 much but you can tell they both have different personalities. Also in different eras of GTA games characters from the previous rarely re-appear (Other than El Burro) with radio being an exception (According to Rockstar)

I think they are the same person, but because of the different universes, they are different, just like there's probably a universe where i don't exist, they are the same thing just with a few changes.

“Surname may or may not be Speed” leads me to believe that it’s up for interpretation. I think personally that they are NOT the same person.
