The game's publisher Rockstar Games has yet to release any official information about the upcoming GTA VI, but many sources have already confirmed that the game is in the later stages of development already. Previously anticipated to arrive earlier, the game's delay came as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which halted production on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The game was allegedly planned to be a launch game for both devices.
According to credible leaker Tom Henderson, who has previously given inside scoops on Call of Duty, the newest GTA will include both a male and female protagonist. Right now, it is unclear whether players will have the option to choose which character to use from the start or if you'll switch between the two throughout the game. More news on the game's development is expected to arrive as its release date gets closer.
