Grand Theft Auto remains a distant dream for the fans of the series. However, speculations have not stopped for one second. Everything has been discussed, from maps to vehicles. One thing remains essential for GTA: the protagonist of the game.
In Grand Theft Auto 5 the three protagonists were the heart and soul of the game. Their characters were likable and they soon earned a place in our hearts, despite their flaws. Therefore, for GTA 6 we expect a protagonist just as memorable.
Bringing back old protagonists
There are some theories online which claim that main protagonists from the previous installments will make a comeback for Grand Theft Auto 6. While this might not be true, the possibility of having at their cameo appearances in GTA 6 is very high.
A female protagonist
Women haven’t been main characters in GTA games and many feel like this should change. Having a female protagonist could encourage girls to try out the game.
Co-writer of the series, Dan Houser discussed this back in 2013: In the future, could we do a game with a lead female 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 [‘GTA V’] but definitely for the right game in the future – with the right themes, it could be fantastic.”
Brand new characters
In the end, there is a big chance that Rockstar will surprise us with something new in Grand Theft Auto 6. Since developers haven’t disappointed us in the past, there are plenty of reasons to trust them and see what they come up with.
There have been plenty of rumors, including one that claimed that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes will voice the protagonists. At the moment we can only wait and see what’s next.
