Are Red Dead Redemption and GTA in the Same World? | The Leaderboard

Rockstar games have huge sprawling open worlds, filled with tons of things to do and NPCs to talk to. Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA V are the latest iterations that greatly expanded their world. With some locations and names shared across their library of games, is it possible that there is one defined Rockstar Games Universe? Let’s see if we can find the answer on Console Conspiracy!

  1. Well, you can call Madam Nazar. You even hear a market in the Background and the number you have to dial is the number lady Braithworth mumbles. So pretty good connection to me.

  2. Isn’t there a book in one of the gta houses about the Wild West, written by one J Marston?

    But also, haven’t the devs flat out said that these are just easter eggs and that NO, they’re NOT the same universe?

  3. I actually have a theory for the inconsistent geography, because Francis is a Time travller, his antics must have caused changes to certain places like LA becoming Los Santos and NY becoming Liberty city just because of Francis doing something in the past

  4. My theory is that the whole story of red dead is actually told from the eyes of jack. What I mean by that is that he wrote the book after he killed Edgar Ross and that is why there is a book in gta 5 called red dead.

  5. There is also donner falls in rdr2 which clearly resembles the donner party which could make it take place somewhere more northern like Oregon or Idaho or Utah or even California which could explain everything because the biomes that we see in rdr2 can be seen everywhere around there.
