Reports have been coming in that GTA 6 will have a female character as the main character in the upcoming game. This is a first for the series. Rockstar has not even announced the game to the public yet, but according to rumors and leaks, the game is pretty far into development.
Tom Henderson, a fairly common source for gaming information especially in the Call of Duty franchise, was the one to drop the information about the female lead for GTA 6. Similar to GTA 5, the game will have multiple protagonists that you can control, one female and one male. Sadly for fans of the series, this is all the information he gave. Although he did not give credit to where he got this information, I honestly believe him as he showed to give solid information in the past.
I do not think Rockstar is going to comment on any of this as they have kept a pretty strict “no comment” policy throughout the years.
I personally cannot wait for this game and I think it will bring all the hype that Cyberpunk 2077 did but actually bring the quality product to back it up. But for now, I suppose we will just have to wait patiently for more information to come out. I for one am at the edge of my seat.
