The rumour mill is suggesting that the main protagonist of the next Grand Theft Auto game could be female, but there’s something a little odd about this supposed leak…
The rumour started a few years ago now, but has resurfaced thanks to a new report from Daily Star.
According to “inside sources” we’ll be playing as a woman in Grand Theft Auto 6, but the “news” directly contradicts another supposed leak we’ve heard…
Back in April this year, a leaker claimed to have details not only about GTA 6’s map, but also some details of the story [via Dexerto].
The file originates from Pastebin, and states: “GTA 6 is going to feature multiple big cities which players can travel across.
“In the title which will make you a kind of a drug lord. You will start as a small time guy in Liberty city doing odd chores and small time thefts and eventually work your way to Vice city where you will join a famous gang. You will be tasked to look after business in liberty city until you are brought back to Vice City and soon become the drug lord.
“Rockstar games has an idea about when they want to release the game but the corporates want to analyse the sales of PS5 and the Xbox 2. This game cant come for ps4 because of memory restrictions. We have 2 major cities along with a vast stretch of highways and blaine county like country sides in the middle of it all.there will also be some kind of timed era between the missions with flashbacks. Certain shops will sell diff types of items in diff eras. Rdr2 type stranger dialogues will be implemented.
“There are big plans in online and with major content like newer towns. They are working closely with microsoft [and] sony on cloud gaming which will help them enable Online to be a continuous process.”
The leaks definitely makes no mention of playing as a female, and seeing how detailed the above information is, it doesn’t seem like something that would be left out…
One of these rumours is wrong: so which one is it?
Well, unfortunately there’s no way to tell until Rockstar Games decides we’re all worthy of the knowledge.
Maybe we’ll get a reveal trailer for GTA 6 at E3 2019? Maybe…but probably not.
