In a world of progressive changes, it’s no wonder Rockstar Games has decided to stay on point with today’s culture shift. After five “Grand Theft Auto” titles featuring male protagonists, Rockstar has finally decided to set its sixth installment with a playable female character. This mysterious woman will be blasting through story segments with a male counterpart, just like Bonnie and Clyde. This news comes hot on the tail of developer backlash about current culture in the work environment.
The sixth installment of the franchise has reportedly been in development since 2014, and the scope of the game will change dramatically due to Rockstar’s pledge to counter game production crunch time. Which has been a growing menace to game makers in these past years with incredibly tough deadlines.
Fans of “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City” might be happy to learn the sixth game is set to take place in a fictionalized version of Miami. Which might make it possible for some characters of that specific period to make a comeback for story purposes and missions. Of course with “GTA Online” becoming so popular, the game won’t just stop there. New content will be continuously added over time, with Rockstar Games having no plans to keep fans waiting for exciting GTA experiences even after launch day.
While the sixth game is about two years away from an official release date, fans still have plenty of DLC content for from “GTA Online” to keep them going. Currently, a DLC starring rapper Dr. Dre has dropped, and GTA radio has been blessed with six new songs by Dre. Fans shouldn’t expect a lag in content for the next couple years.
