The HD Universe is the third and current canonical universe of Grand Theft Auto series, after the 2D Universe and the 3D Universe. It is named for the high-definition 3D graphics introduced in it. The generation comprising the games set in HD Universe is the HD era, previously known as GTA IV era.

The HD universe started out in 2008 with the release of Grand Theft Auto IV. The game was followed by two DLC packs called The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, both of which occur in the same time as GTA IV. In 2009, Rockstar released Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, a game for mobile platforms set one year after GTA IVwith a stand-alone story. The generation was known as the GTA IV era until the announcement of Grand Theft Auto V in 2011, which revealed that games within the series are set in different universes based on their graphics (2D, 3D and HD), contrary to the previous belief that each numbered title started a new era.

The HD Universe is mainly set in the city of Liberty City and the southern part of the state of San Andreas, both located in the United States of America. Widely detailed, its locations are much more similar to their real-life counterparts than those of the previous universes. Its protagonists are Niko BellicJohnny KlebitzHuang LeeLuis Fernando LopezMichael De SantaTrevor PhilipsFranklin Clinton and the GTA Online Protagonist.
