Grand Theft Auto 6 will feature a playable female protagonist and be set in Vice City, sources have told Bloomberg's Jason Schreier.
GTA 6 was originally codenamed Project Americas and was to span across North and South America. That plan has been scrapped, and GTA 6 will now take place in Vice City, a fictional rendition of Miami.
The sequel is set to star two main characters based on a modernized Bonnie and Clyde. One of them, a playable female protagonist, will also be Latina, Bloomberg has learned. Unlike GTA V, whose story was set in stone and hasn't been touched since 2013, GTA 6's story campaign will also evolve over time with new missions and cities as the game shifts towards a service model.
As for a release date, Rockstar employees are skeptical that GTA 6 would release by March 2024 as we predicted (which was later supported by analysts). Rockstar's internal shake ups have left GTA 6 will multiple directors, creating congested leadership that has complicated the game's development.
