According to reports, the long-awaited grand theft auto 6 will include a Latina female lead who will be one of the two main characters in the upcoming game. If accurate, this will mark the first entry with a female playable lead. The decision coincides with Rockstar’s internal drive to improve workplace practices and culture, with fewer overtime hours required and improvements to the company’s gender gap.
This comes via a report from Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the game’s development. The outlet spoke to more than 20 current and former Rockstar employees, most of whom view the company’s recent changes as positive, leading to improved morale, overall.
According to the report, the protagonists of GTA 6 they will be influenced by Bonnie and Clyde. You may be able to swap between the two on the fly, just like in GTA V, though it’s unclear how this will work when the game finally launches.
By all accounts, Rockstar (and GTA 6) they aim to be very different from before. The company, once known for poking fun at everyone, including marginalized groups, is becoming more mindful of what kind of content its games will include. For example, the company apparently scrapped plans to include a Cops ‘n’ Crooks mode in GTA Online after a police officer murdered George Floyd in the summer of 2020.
Similarly, Rockstar has also improved its gender pay gap, with a greater focus on equality and overall health in the workplace, both physically and mentally. As Rockstar has improved workplace practices, employees have had healthier work schedules, with fewer crises, which has extended the development time of GTA 6.
Some Rockstar employees do not expect GTA 6 It won’t release until 2024 at the earliest, though the company has yet to reveal a firm release date.
