According to reports from the latest rumors, Grand Theft Auto 6 or GTA 6 should have a female protagonist, the first for the series.
Rockstar Games has yet to announce or confirm that a new game in the series is in development, but according to some sources, it appears that GTA 6 is already in development for next-generation consoles and PC.
Unfortunately, in the current state of things, no further information has emerged on the release of the game, but recent rumors would suggest some news related to the protagonist of the game. That information was leaked by Tom Henderson, an industry leaker and insider widely known for his scoop on the Call of Duty franchise.
On Twitter, Henderson recently revealed that Grand Theft Auto 6 will have a female lead alongside a male lead. Unfortunately, however, the information ends there.
It is not clear if the game has two playable protagonists in a similar way to what happened in the previous chapter of the series or if we will be able to choose the gender of the main character. It is important to note that Henderson did not disclose his source.
That said, he has proven reliable on numerous occasions in the past, although he has given information related to the Call of Duty saga. In general, however, as this information is neither official nor confirmed by the directly interested parties, we invite you to take what you have read so far with a grain of salt.
