GTA 6: one of the two main characters would be a woman, a first for the saga

GTA 6 could allow players to play as a woman. If the information is confirmed, this will be the first time that Rockstar has given this possibility. However, as with other leaks involving the game, this reveal should be taken with a grain of salt.


In recent months, GTA 6 continues to reveal itself. The future opus of the saga is the subject of numerous leaks on the city, the gameplay or the characters. It is on this last aspect that the information revealed by Tom Henderson, CEO of the social media agency Viral Junkie, is interested. According to him, “For the first time in GTA history, GTA 6 will have a female and male playable character”.

Indeed, of its history, Rockstar never gave up the possibility of playing a woman on screen, whether in its most popular game series than in its other titles. The rumor has already been started in 2018, and therefore seems to be confirmed today. At the time, she predicted a GTA 6 release in 2022 as well as a return to Vice City.

Will we really be able to play a woman in GTA 6?

The map of the game would also have leaked on the net, also indicating a return to Vice City. Only here it is: in all likelihood, this map is a fake. It is still very difficult to distinguish the true from the false with regard to the 6th installment of GTA, so much Rockstar remains silent on this subject. The studio teased its video game on Google Maps recently, but since then it has been walled in silence. Although this is not the first time that such information has surfaced, it is therefore still impossible to confirm with certainty.

In the meantime, the players themselves go fishing for the news. One fan reportedly discovered weapons from the game in Red Dead Redemption 2, another hit title from Rockstar. It should be noted that Tom Henderson indicates that it will be possible play as two characters, which would mean that the studio would have taken the formula of GTA 5, which offered the possibility of playing three characters by changing almost at will. His successor could very well be inspired by this game mode.
