Grand Theft Auto 6 is one of the most awaited games this year. Since the beginning of 2021, a bunch of rumors and speculations about the yet to be launched GTA 6 game have surfaced online. While leaks are quite common when it comes to games that are keenly awaited by fans, the kind of anticipation this upcoming game by Rockstar Games has generated is rare.
When Will GTA 6 Be Released?
According to a recent leak, Grand Theft Auto 6 will be launched sometime around October 2023. Yes, you read that right!
If this rumor turns out to be true, one will have to wait for more than two years for the upcoming version of the hugely popular game to arrive. There are also strong indications about the game having a retro feel to it. The first two chapters of the game, reportedly, will be set in the 1970s. Florida is expected to be the city that the game would be based in. All this information has definitely taken the excitement around the game to another level.
Playable Male and Female Protagonist in GTA 6?
As stated earlier, there have been several leaks pertaining to the game this year. There are innumerable fans of the franchise across the globe that track every development very closely. The last three months, however, have given a tremendous amount of fodder for their imagination.
One of the first leaks around the game was courtesy YouTuber Tom Henderson (more popularly known as LongSensation) who stated that Grand Theft Auto 6 will feature a playable male and female protagonist. If his claim turns out to be correct, then this would be a first for a Grand Theft Auto title. Though his claim remains unverified, another popular YouTuber named LegacyKillerHD has corroborated it.
On a more serious note, the leaks the last few years of a female protagonist being featured are true. I can verify that someone in the know, a few years ago confirmed that & the entire Project Americas leak to me.

In the first week of February, one came across another major leak. This time around, the platform was Reddit. According to this leak, Grand Theft Auto 6 would feature a chapter that would be very similar to the one which gamers came across in Red Dead Redemption 2. The leak also pointed towards the fact that the Rockstar Games had toyed with the idea of having a female protagonist lead the narrative this time but it was a matter of time before they put the idea aside.
This was quite an elaborate leak which also stated that the map in the game would cover a smaller distance but the areas it would touch upon would be densely populated. Unlike the earlier versions of the game, which boasted of a fairly outlandish look, the upcoming version is expected to have a more grounded feel to it.
There have been many more leaks in the last three months that have offered a glimpse into the kind of things Rockstar Games has in store for the fans of the franchise with GTA 6. With an official launch of the game being far away, one should expect many more exciting leaks to come our way in the times to come.
