Grand Theft Auto V is likely one of the most worthwhile leisure franchises within the historical past of video games. It got here alongside as a return to type after what many followers would argue was a misstep with the extra gritty and reasonable GTA 4. Originally launched again in 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3—sure, it spans three console generations—developer Rockstar has supported the game’s on-line mode with continuous updates including new content material, new areas, and even all-new mechanics.
GTA V was such a runaway success—and GTA The Trilogy: Definitive Edition was such a dumpster hearth—that Rockstar gave up engaged on a Red Dead Redemption 2 DLC, and has now reportedly deserted plans to remaster extra of its beloved older titles to as an alternative give attention to each additional GTA Online content material in addition to the event of GTA 6.

Naturally, expectations for GTA 6 are extremely excessive, and given the superior age of GTA V, followers are chomping on the bit for any bit of stories. That’s why there’s a lot buzz round a report at Bloomberg that focuses on Rockstar’s new company tradition. Company co-founder Dan Houser left Rockstar in 2020, and ever since then the event home has been making an attempt to reshape a company tradition that the report refers to as being “like a frat house”.

Given the character and tone of the humor within the Grand Theft Auto sequence, it is actually not shocking to listen to that the ambiance inside Rockstar was juvenile and chauvinistic. The report remarks that the office tradition at Rockstar was “full of drinking, brawling, and excursions to strip clubs.” That could sound like an excellent time to some, but it surely’s admittedly not very skilled.

As a part of the report, writer Jason Schreier casually reveals that GTA 6 can have no less than two playable protagonists, and that considered one of them will likely be a Latina girl. This technically is not the primary playable girl nor even the primary playable Hispanic girl within the GTA sequence; the very first GTA game featured a Latina named “Katie” as considered one of its eight playable characters.

Still, only a few of the sequence’ fashionable followers even keep in mind the outdated DOS-based Grand Theft Auto, so we will forgive everybody for forgetting about poor Katie. Regardless, the brand new woman will apparently be a part of a Bonnie-and-Clyde-like crime duo, calling to thoughts the partnership between Claude and Catalina to start with of Grand Theft Auto III. Hopefully the partnership between the brand new participant characters in GTA 6 does not finish the identical approach that one did.
