Grand Theft Auto 5 has been a great addition to the Grand Theft Auto franchise. It might be getting old now, but it certainly is aging well with its strong player base. However, one can?t help but wonder, just when will GTA 6 come out and just how will it be?

There isn?t much official info out on GTA 6 yet, but rumors of big things coming to the next game are starting to hold some weight. One of the biggest rumors raises the notion that GTA 6 may just have a new female lead in the franchise and it may all happen in Vice City.

Female Lead

A female lead for GTA 6 would be a very interesting take on the franchise since every lead protagonist has always been a guy. But the thought of having a female lead in the GTA universe may not just be fan fiction any longer. It seems some of the heads at Rockstar are seriously looking into the idea of having a female lead.

Dan Houser, one of the company?s co-founders revealed in an interview with IGN that having a female lead in Grand Theft Auto is very plausible.

?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 this game but definitely for the right game in the future,? he said on IGN.

It seems GTA 5 may not have had the best environment for a female lead to rise in. But with the thought of making a female lead for years, GTA 6 may just be the perfect new setting for this female lead to make her debut.

We Might See Vice City Again

GTA 6 may make a return to Vice City. Its sounds like a long shot but it certain isn?t impossible. GTA 5 had several areas from San Andreas and GTA 4?s setting was in Liberty City.

Leslie Benzies, the former Rockstar North head said that the franchise returning to Vice City is very possible. Benzies said, ?It is always a possibility. There are a few references to the city in our current-gen GTAs so it is part of that HD universe, and it is certainly somewhere we would love to revisit.?

In addition, if GTA 6 were to be set in Vice City, it might be in a time period close to the original title?s. Benzies added that Miami in the 1980?s was a very iconic time and it would be a good chance to revisit Vice City at a different time period.

Finally, GTA 6 has no real release date yet. It could probably come out anywhere from 2018 to 2020. But with continued support on GTA Online, we might just see GTA 6 debut on the next generation consoles at this rate.
