The two most features fans look for the most before a popular game launch, are the release date of the game and the characters going to include in the game. GTA 6 is also not an exception, and the fans are already psyched about this immensely popular open world action-adventure video game. Although the franchise has kept things under the wrap about the GTA 6 release date, some concrete news on the GTA 6 characters is currently storming the internet.
GTA 6 Characters: Rumours or Truth?
The most rocking news we heard till date regarding the Grand Theft Auto 6 characters is that the game will feature a female character in the lead role if not as a protagonist. Not only that, for even the renowned Hollywood actress Eva Mendes will lend her voice to the female protagonist character. Though when the journalists asked Dan Houser, the head writer for Rockstar Games, in this matter, he did not spill the bin. Instead, he replied, “We didn’t really think about it, this time, That’s not to say that we couldn’t or we wouldn’t. This GTA 6 character set is just what came to us: it wasn’t, ‘we’ve got X and Y so we need Z,’ we weren’t trying to do it off a checklist – I don’t think that will ever give you something that’s believable or engaging.”
Later Houser added, “In the future, could we do a game with a female lead character? Of course. We just haven’t found the right game for it yet, but it’s one of the things that we always think about. It didn’t feel natural for this game but definitely for the right game in the future – with the right themes, it could be fantastic. But for GTA V, this was the organic thing that came up; these were the characters what would display the themes we wanted to think about.”
The fans also get divided over this matter and giving different reactions about the female protagonist. While some fans are completely supporting this rumoured introduction saying that the game will now appeal more fans; particularly the female gamers will be interested in playing the video game, some are saying that introduction of a female protagonist will not be a very fruitful for the legacy of Grand Theft Auto franchise.
Another news that surprises the fans is the rumoured casting of Ryan Gosling, the real-life partner of Eva Mendes and another superstar of Hollywood. According to many sources, Gosling will play a surprise character in the game. He will portray the character of the descendant of John Marston, the protagonist in “Red Dead Redemption. In a way, Rockstar Games is planning to merge characters of GTA and Red Dead Redemption in the upcoming GTA 6.
The developers portrayed three main protagonists, Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips and Franklin Clinton in the GTA 5. This instalment of the video game revolves around these three characters. But in GTA 6, it is more likely that the whole plot will be revolved around a single main character who will lead the story. Apart from that, Rockstar is also thinking about introducing a good guy character of a ‘cop’. The players will get an option to play as a good guy or a bad guy. If the developers finally introduce this GTA 6 characters, that will be a very welcoming decision.
