For the first time, ‘GTA 6’ to have a female protagonist!

There’s never been an option for players to choose a female protagonist in Grand Theft Auto games in its history. That might change with GTA 6!

According to Gamesradar, GTA 6 is rumored to have a female protagonist. Tom Henderson, the famous Call of Duty leaker, recently posted a tweet on his account. It mentioned that there would be an option to choose either a female or male protagonist for the main story for the first time.

Despite this being just early speculation, it’s an interesting topic of debate. Rockstar Games is the parent company behind all the Grand Theft Auto titles so far. And there’s been no emphasis on female characters like their male counterparts since its inception.

GTA 6: Early game details

Speaking of the tweet again, by Tom Henderson, then there’s no valid source mentioned with his words. So everything must be taken with a grain of salt as of now.

Talking about the protagonists, then GTA 6 might change the way players used to switch between them previously. The practice of switching the characters was common in its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto 5.

When it comes to the new game itself, it first made headlines last year in November. An online teaser presented several coordinates that pointed towards a remote location in Virginia. And since then, fans are speculating about it to be the main setting in which the next installment is based.

On the other hand, Rockstar is yet to reveal any official information on the highly-anticipated successor to the last title in the iconic franchise. But it will surely be a next-gen experience for all the gamers.

Video games with female protagonist options

Although there are not many titles that allow you to have a proper female-led storyline, several games are just epic. There are many options to choose from when it comes to video games, choosing a female character as a protagonist.

Franchises like Fallout, Assassin’s Creed give you a brilliant experience if you want yourself to be a female hero. However, previous releases in the Assassin’s Creed legacy didn’t give such choices. But the developer changed that practice with Odyssey. 2020’s best-selling Christmas title Valhalla also provides the option to choose a female character.

If you want to have a pure female-led campaign, then there is the rebooted Tomb Raider series. Its last release, 2018’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider, provides impressive gameplay.

But again, being a fan of Grand Theft Auto, if you want a female protagonist right now, there’s time for that to happen. GTA 6 is still away from its official announcement.
