Should the next GTA game feature a female protagonist?

It surely can't be that long before Rockstar announces a new GTA game now. Once they have got the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 out of the way, I suspect it will just be a matter of time.

A female protagonist is certainly an interesting concept. After the enormous success of GTA 5, Rockstar are going to have a tough task creating a sequel that lives up to it's predecessor. Perhaps a female protagonist is just the kind of thing the series needs to take it in an exciting new direction. It's not really something that's been done before (the PC version of the original GTA allowed you to choose from several characters including some women, but that I'm not counting that). I think if done well, it could really work.

  • I certainly think if they keep the 3 protag idea from GTAV, that a lot of people liked, having a female character would be neat.

    They used Trevor to explore drugs and arms dealing, Franklin for vehicles and racing and Michael had more of an emphasis on juggling his family life.
    With this is mind, I think having a female protag explore something like prostitution or something might be really cool.

  • Would be quite interesting if they can pull it off. I personally would like a female version of Trevor from gta5 ie quite unhinged and psychotic but I guess a female in any form would break the mold. Also would like gta6 to be set in the UK ie London

    • There was a GTA London back in the day, but that was before the series went 3D. I would love to see a modern take on it. Something with a Krays-style setting would be awesome.

    • Will be perfect, with a voice cast with Vinnie Jones, Jason statham and Danny Dyer to name but a few. Danny Dyer has already played Kent Paul in VC and SA

  • Well why not? You can play GTA online as a female character as well, so why not include one in the story.

  • I don't think it should be done for the sake of a "female protagonist and equality" but it could be interesting seeing it from a female perspective

  • I think it would be interesting. It could show the differences in a female perspective.

  • Would be unrealistic and cringy af. Making your own character a girl sure thats nice. But forcing people to play as a girl would suck.

    • The GTA series has never been renowned for it's realism anyway.

    • Show All
    • Out of curiosity, how would you feel about them doing what they did in GTA 5 and having three protagonists again, only this time with one of them being a girl?

    • If they would get it right it could be awesome. But i highly doubt they would get it right because of the fact that they lack experience and the female characters in GTA V sucked.

  • Time to think out of the box. Why not a transgender-bisexual-crossdresser?
