GTA 6 Leaks and Reports
Grand Theft Auto 6, which is the 8th entry in Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto series, will apparently include a female playable character in story mode. Female protagonists have never appeared in the game’s single-player campaigns except the first game; they have only ever been accessible as custom characters in GTA Online.
Dan Houser, a co-founder of Rockstar who has since left the firm, previously said the studio had considered a female lead as early as 2013.
According to a new report, some canceled plans included three cities, but Rockstar has decided to start the game with just one city and gradually add more places through updates.
