A new leak has revealed potential information about Rockstar Games' GTA 6, involving details about the game's protagonist.
GTA 5 is one of the most successful games in Rockstar's history. It's Online Multiplayer experience, GTA Online, also continues to garner more and more success.
It's clear that GTA 6 might still be far from players' grasp, however that doesn't mean information isn't floating about.
Although Rockstar is preparing their next-gen release of GTA 5, a recent leak has suggested that the GTA 5 'Expanded and Enhanced' edition could include a major upgrade on next-gen consoles.
In fact, one insider has already confirmed that GTA 6 is currently in development.
This means that at some point we are going to see information emerge regarding the next game in the series.
GTA 6 Leaked Protagonist Details
The leak for GTA 6 involves the protagonist, which as of this moment, unsurprisingly, is unknown.
This information comes from Twitter, from Tom Henderson. Who tweeted out revealing information regarding GTA 6 and its plans for the future.
Henderson has proved reliable in the past for leaking information to the public, especially regarding the Call of Duty franchise.
It's important with any form of leaked information to remain skeptical but quietly optimistic.
Here is what Henderson had to say regarding GTA 6 and its protagonist:
According to Henderson's tweet, for the first time in the history of the GTA series, the game will feature a female protagonist.
If this information is correct, this will be a turning point for the series, which up to this point has always featured male characters.
The GTA 6 protagonist is certainly a very important element. Rockstar Games has always been very good at crafting well-written and interesting characters, often with rather volatile personalities.
So perhaps we can look forward to the surprise appearance of a female protagonist in GTA 6, with Rockstar's well-developed penchant for writing personalities.
Given the fact that GTA 5 features a rather unusual switchable character system, maybe we can expect to see more than one female character in GTA 6 too.
Rockstar Games Rumors and Speculation
As of right now, information regarding GTA 6 is extremely scarce, undoubtedly it's still very early days.
However, there was a GTA 6 teaser possibly discovered in a recent update trailer. This could indicate that GTA 6 is closer than we think, although this could be wishful thinking.
In the meantime, players can still enjoy GTA Online and look forward to continued updates.
The most recent update is the Cayo Perico Heist, which tasks players with taking down El Rubio, a notorious drug lord on a private island.
Furthermore, the most recent update has added new cars and a free submarine upgrade, so be sure to pick this up whilst you still can.
We will continue to cover both news regarding GTA Online, and any rumors or speculation about GTA 6. For now, however, players can only envisage what GTA 6 might look like.
Perhaps we can expect something similar to Red Dead Redemption 2, or maybe some mechanics from this game will be transferred over?
One thing is certain, it's an exciting time for GTA 6 news and rumors, with the recent launch of next-gen consoles.
