Grand Theft Auto 5 introduced some of the most iconic and completely deranged characters in the 23-year history of the franchise.
But even though Rockstar Games’ latest installment of the open-world crime drama was praised for its innovative approach to interactive storytelling, it didn’t correct one of GTA’s most pointed mistakes: its problematic representation of women.
The series requires a female protagonist, and GTA 6 should be the game to include a woman in the leading role for a small part.
GTA Online lets players create female characters to run around the multiplayer Los Santos version, but starring a female as the principal character would take the GTA franchise where it has never been before without fighting one of its biggest problems.
The series has a controversial past with the misogynistic portrayal of women and the 2014 GTA 5 release nothing to change that.
While the game received a large share of reviews, many reviewers noted that Rockstar’s supporting female characters were all sexist that were the result of the game’s nuanced critique of 21st century life.
Those that might need this technology will finally see Rockstar with GTA 6, despite the fact that it is reportedly in early development.
A female as ‘GTA 6’s protagonist would take the series to places that it has never been before.
GTA 6 could render a female lead to the truth while also delivering a narrative and gameplay experience before it hadn’t been seen in a GTA game.
Rockstar could make its hypothetical protagonist a Femme-Female that enchants and locks its associates to extort her will.
Every rumor we heard about the possible plot of GTA 6 would make this type of leader work perfectly.
Unconfirmed details say the game will allow players to play as an emerging drug smuggler who expands his criminal enterprise across Vice City and parts of Latin America.
If this proves to be true, Rockstar could follow the real life story of drug lords, like and.
Unconfirmed ‘GTA 6’s leaks even hinting to an upcoming female protagonist.
This could also lead players to scenarios and give them certain options not mentioned in past versions of the series.
A female character could shoot her way out of a confrontation much as Trevor from GTA 5 would or maybe she could take a sneakier approach to certain missions.
She could go in all kinds of roles that men would not be able to play.
In fact, a female protagonist would give the player more choices in return than less.
A GTA with a female lead might not even be that far fetched
A portion of past GTA 6 rumours also included mention of a character – named Acey – that was described as a drug-smuggler.
While that alleged detail is still based on how far GTA 6 is estimated to be in development, there is hope that Rockstar might be looking to expand the scope of perspectives the GTA series provides to its fans.
GTA 6 is reportedly in its first development phase.
