GTA 6 is still not officially confirmed, but rumors and leaks about the title have been increasing for a while.
The latest forecast comes from Tom Henderson – and thus from a well-known source that has already distinguished itself in the past with correct predictions.
These predictions include the announcement of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. In the case of the latest GTA installment, Henderson wants to know something about the playable characters:

Who do we play in GTA 6?
Henderson explains succinctly that for the first time in the history of GTA we will control a female and a male protagonist. Incidentally, this also suggests that there will probably be another character change, as already announced in GTA 5.
Why does that indicate a change of character?
Henderson’s statement initially leaves some room for interpretation. Having a playable male and female protagonist in a game could also mean that you simply set your gender at the start of the game or create your own character entirely.
According to Henderson, however, this is a first for the series. In principle, individual female characters were already selectable and playable in the past: on the one hand in the first GTA from 1997, on the other hand in GTA Online.
Character change on board again: GTA 5, on the other hand, was the first part of the gangster series in which you could switch between different protagonists in the course of the game. This wasn’t just cosmetic, as each of the three anti-heroes had a special skill.
According to the leak, we can expect a similar system again in GTA 6, only that, according to Henderson, for the first time you will also welcome at least one woman in the group.
Fulfillment of a fan wish: If GTA 6 does indeed have a female protagonist, it would one of the biggest fan requests to be met. At least that was the result of a survey of more than 5,800 players.
