New information for GTA 6
GTA 6 will allow us to embody two characters, including a female of Latin American origin. This is a great first for the franchise, which has always been content to have players embody male characters. It is Jason Shreier, famous journalist at Bloomberg, who gives us the information. Obviously, this unofficial information must be taken with a grain of salt, even if he is often very well informed. The story of the next opus would be strongly influenced by Bonnie and Clyde, two American criminals. The map should be smaller than expected, based on Miami and surrounding areas. And for the date, some investors expect a release for the fiscal year of 2024, to understand between April 2023 and March 2024. Jason Schreier indicates however that the developers are skeptical.
