Lazlow returns for Integrity 2.0, R* answers GTA-related questions

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 12:33 PM MDT | By Ash_735
Rockstar games revealed earlier on their New Wire page that radio personality Lazlow has recorded more Integrity 2.0 content for The Ballad of Gay Tony.

After Rockstar revealed the information about Lazlow they went on to answer a couple of fan questions, which included the GTA related questions as follows:
"Hey Rockstar! I've been a huge fan of Vice City... and was wondering; is that Victor Vance who is gunned down in the intro of Vice City? All sources seem to say "yes", but no official word has been given on that." - received via Mouthoff

Yup... that's Vic. After having been dragged back into the Vice City criminal underworld by his brother Lance following the events of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Vic Vance dies in the ambush that occurs in the opening scene of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
"Does anyone know the name of the song in the Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars trailer?" - received via YouTube

The song featured in the trailer for Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is aptly named "Chinatown Wars" by Ghostface Killah and Doom. It was produced exclusively for the game by Oh No (of Stones Throw fame, from the west coast), and is currently available on iTunes.
"In GTAIV, there's a wall that contains the names of previous protagonists in the Grand Theft Auto series, and after some of those names, there are the words 'R.I.P.' or something similar. Is this a way of confirming that the GTA3 timeline is over, or will you bring it back someday?" - Rodrigo6411

This was a little joke for fans of the series. The Grand Theft Auto III timeline is not necessarily over - but it is a different world to Grand Theft Auto IV - only the branding and certain radio personalities exist across both worlds. The reason for this was that we felt Grand Theft Auto IV was a high-definition experience and required different kinds of characters. That - and the fact that most people from the previous world are dead.
"One mystery gone, another to explain :):
Did Claude kill Maria at the end of GTAIII?"
- Mastah27

Certainly gun shots were fired, but nobody is sure as to exactly what happened.

I had a felling they were going to give that kind of answer for the last question

I always wonder what happened to Tommy after the storyline of VC. Is he still alive over 20 years later as GTA IV is taking place in that different world?

I want to know what happened to CJ, and Tommy.

Claude is pretty much assumed dead.

Also I want to know more about The Truth, and Mike T from SA.
