Grand Theft Auto to get its first female protagonist

The Grand Theft Auto series is set to get its first female protagonist. After iconic characters like CJ, Tommy Vercetti, Michael, Franklin, and Trevor, Rockstar will finally add a playable female protagonist.

The woman is reportedly a Latina who will be a part of a pair of protagonists. The leading characters have reportedly been influenced by bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde.

GTA 6 is reportedly based in Vice City, a fictionalized version of Miami. Rockstar will reportedly add more cities and updates in the future in a phased manner.

GTA 6 expected launch date

The development of GTA 6 has been moving at a slow pace, in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic and part due to the changes being made in the organization.

The game will reportedly take at least two years and is expected to be launched sometime in 2024.

The exit of Dan Houser, the man behind the creative direction at Rockstar, is also expected to have a huge impact on the game. For those unaware, Dan Houser founded Rockstar Games along with his brother Sam in 1998.
