GTA 6 Based In Miami; Features Female Protagonist, Says Insider

The anticipated titles is still at least, "two years away."

There is no doubt that Grand Theft Auto 6 has been the most awaited game since the inception of this decade. GTA 5 was a massive success and has only grown in recent years instead of simmering down. GTA Online has played a big role in retaining the allure of GTA 5. Over the years, the player base and staggering sales rise have proven that an excellent open-world game can surpass even the next-gen AAA titles. 

Despite the startling dominance of Grand Theft Auto 5, the fans have been wondering for a long time about Grand Theft Auto 6. The community had been plagued with fake rumors over the years, but some light finally slipped through the cracks. In February 2022, Rockstar Games ultimately affirmed that “active development for the next entry in the series is underway” in a memorable tweet.

Fans have wondered about the setting and protagonist(s) of Grand Theft Auto 6 since the well-renowned announcement whirred around the community. A plethora of new details has come to light regarding GTA 6. According to a Bloomberg report, the title will likely feature multiple protagonists, including the first female protagonist in history.

The report states, “The woman is Latina and will be one of a pair of leading characters in a story influenced by the bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde.” Additionally, GTA 6’s single-player map will get “future updates,” adding new missions and cities over time to ensure less pressure during the last few months of development. These constant updates will also help secure the longevity of the game.

The original plans for the game were to make GTA 6 bigger than any Grand Theft Auto title to date. The code-named game Project Americas had large portions of North and South America territories planned for it, according to people aware of the plan. Grand Theft Auto 6 new map is now focusing on a fictional version of Miami and the areas surrounding it.

Moreover, the developers have eased down on the potentially offensive humor the prior titles featured. Previous installments in the GTA series usually objectified women. The report elaborates, “Developers are also being cautious not to “punch down” by making jokes about marginalized groups, the people said, in contrast to previous games.

Furthermore, the game is at least two years away due to Rockstar Games making crucial changes to the development process to ensure there is less to no overtime. Bloomberg reports that the changes in development are an extensive process for the goliath company. “Due to some of the changes that the company implemented in an effort to improve working conditions, such as a restructuring of the design department and a pledge to keep overtime under control.

Grand Theft Auto 6 also incorporates more interior locations than any previous installments. That has also impacted the development process. All in all, these additions will only make the world more immersive. Even though this is crucial insider information, we suggest taking this with a grain of salt.
