They say it at 16:38 on head radio.. how did you know this was going to happen rockstar!?

 

I asked in the comments since I was sure GTA2 was set in 2013, and someone said yes it was.. very weird. here is the head radio station from gta2, they say it on the "news" at 16:38

rockstargames.com/gta2/journal/journal_list.html always had 2013 file dates, so it's a possible date for GTA2 time setting. The real Crimea riots happened in 2014, so the Rockstar psychic must have been drunk.

Well, actually we don't know if GTA 2 is set in 2013 or 1999.

Hmm, so what about this... if the intro took place in 1999 where Claude got shot and probably put into a cryogenic sleep afterwards and those file dates tell us that at least up to the end of 2013 the bosses were still alive, Claude might as well woke up in 2014 or even later. But this would be only true if we consider that Claude kills all bosses in game as the real end of the game.

Riots in Krimea. The GTA2 version of Krimea, a district in Industrial, under control of the russians. But I find it pretty interesting how R* included it, seeing as the riots are happening nearly in the same date.

Still, it's broadcasted as international news. Strange.

Well, conspiracy theories are funny but after you read 4327984 about middle-age secret societes and the same amount about modern politics things stop being so funny.

 

BTW, GTA 2 is set in 1999 so it's bullsh*t.

Isn't it set "Twenty minutes into the future"? I thought the manual said something like that.

Saying it's set in '99 is just as wrong as saying it's set in 2013. Quite ironic, isn't it?

GTA 2 has no proper timeline, it's just '3 weeks into the future'.

We have an in-game proof that GTA 2 is set in 99' and there are only e-mails for 2013.

 

Because in the beta stage GTA 2 was probably planned to be futuristic and even cyberpunk-ish - and that's why Ray Larabie's cars were cut.

There is no proof of anything whatsoever, neither for it taking place in 99 or 2013. There are only some indications on which basis we can speculate. Basically nearly everything in and about the game indicates that the game takes place in a futuristic setting. To list some: the concept art, the car designs, the online journals, the weapons, some stuff in the missions like human cloning and cold-fusion generators, but the only thing which doesn´t seem to fit is the intro.

 

It can be easily explained with they couldn´t afford to make an intro with cg cars and special effects like there are in movies like the fifth element or making special costumes or they cba to put the effort to design some 3d movie scenery just for some intro, because the whole game is 2d anyway.

There is. If you don't know about this, shame on you :D

 

GTA 2 was planned to be set in the future - look at Ray Larabie's cars, artworks that show a touch of cyberpunk.

 

But the final version of this game is set in 1999. Johny Recaro show. Rings a bell?

This radio phrase is more like a proof of a little mistake from the DJ and nothing more than that. Because the rest just overwhelmingly indicates a futuristic setting. :)

 

Edit: Btw, he says "millenium is coming" right? So it might as well be 2999 then...

2999 is too far away and it couldn't be if we have mails that are telling 2013.

Radios are always recorded in some short time before the finish of the development and the official release so I think it's legit.

Come on, dude, game developers do not simply overthrow the whole game concept/idea they were working on in the last minutes and then try to set it in another time with one radio phrase. ;)

 

They used the futuristic weapons, mission ideas, cars.. everything is in the game according to their concept arts. What would be the purpose of suddenly setting it in the present? To me it just doesn´t make any sense.

A foul-mouthed radio host. Head Radio's co-host in GTA 2.

Also, his name's Johnny Riccaro, not Recaro.

yes I know, I thought he was referencing something else, like it was a rhyme of a real world radio host name or something

It does sound very coincidental, if you ask me. Still, the game has some amazing music in it.
