According to reports, GTA 6 will have the first female protagonist in the series as Rockstar changes the office environment.
According to reports, Grand Theft Auto 6 will feature a female Latina protagonist due to Rockstar’s internal cultural shifts.
The article is from Bloomberg(opens in new tab), and reporter Jason Schreier mentioned the brand-new protagonist for GTA 6 in the following tweet. According to the rumour, which cites unnamed current and former Rockstar developers, GTA 6 will have a female protagonist for the first time in the history of the series.
This appears to be a result of Rockstar’s recent culture adjustments, which were first implemented in 2018 in response to complaints from multiple developers about management’s bullying and crunch mentality. The new report claims that Rockstar has made an effort to turn things around, and many of the developers it quotes think things have improved.
It’s believed that as a result, Rockstar is now more careful with its development. For instance, Rockstar consciously decided to abandon the Cops N’ Crooks feature for GTA Online following the shooting of George Floyd in 2020. As a result, the new Latina heroine for GTA 6 was created. She is one of two female characters Bonnie and Clyde modelled.

Additionally, the article notes that GTA 6’s production has taken longer than anticipated. The pandemic and Rockstar’s departure from its crunch culture, which gave devs more time to work on game features and extended the entire development period, are the causes of this. The developers who Bloomberg spoke to expressed optimism for the future, and there is a strong sense that things have improved at Rockstar in the report.
