According to Bloomberg, one of the main characters of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto VI will be a woman for the first time in the history of the series, at least in the 3D parts of the game.
An article by renowned gaming journalist Jason Schreier claims that the game will feature at least two main characters, one of which is a female Latina. And in general, the story of Grand Theft Auto VI will partially resemble the story of real bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde. In addition, the developers have become a little more careful about making jokes about representatives of various marginalized segments of the population.
According to analysts, the next GTA should be released in the 2024 fiscal year, that is, somewhere between April 2023 and March 2024, but the developers themselves are a little skeptical about this date.
The original plans for Grand Theft Auto VI called for the new game to be bigger than any previous game. Moreover, GTA VI was supposed to include large areas in both North and South America. But for now, the developers decided to limit themselves to one city, which is a fictional version of the real Miami. Rockstar plans to continuously update the game in the future, adding new missions and cities on a regular basis. The management of the company believes that this way they will get rid of crunches at the final stage of development.
