For the most part, being a protagonist in a Grand Theft Auto game meant playing as a tough male carving out his empire. It’s a recipe that has remained mostly unchanged throughout the series’ history. But all that might change soon.
While the next instalment in the Grand Theft Auto series is yet to be announced, we are guessing it will most likely be called Grand Theft Auto 6, this hasn’t stopped all sorts of rumours from popping out of the internet. The latest of these rumours come via the Daily Star and seems to suggest that the next game could indeed feature a female protagonist.
This isn’t a new rumour. It was first reported by The Know a few years back, who cited an inside source. As far as rumours go, this is one that should be taken with an overly large pinch of salt. It is only natural for unsubstantiated rumours to make the rounds as we get closer to E3 2019.
Having said this, it would be interesting to see a franchise that has mostly focused on male protagonists bringing a strong female protagonist into the mix. Who knows, maybe the next Grand Theft Auto could use the same mechanic the previous entry used and have us play as more than one protagonist. And maybe one of them will be a woman.
Maybe, just maybe, we might see some GTA 6 news breaking at E3 2019.
