Will a Female Be the Lead Character in Grand Theft Auto V?

The video game industry has an annual revenue of over $25 billion. One largely anticipated game set to be released in 2012 is Grand Theft Auto V (date yet unannounced), and it assuredly will not disappoint. One reason game forums await the release of GTA V is to find out if the male protagonist streak will be broken. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Judging by the trailer, not likely. There was a male voiceover and absolutely no hints about female lead.

Who knows. If they did that, I really would love Pam Grier as the lead character. She's is probably the baddest mutha lady in films. I can see her in a 70s era GTA in San Andreas. But since they are going modern with probably Hollywood themes, and west coast issue, who knows.

Still holding out for a GTA in the winter, in the Detroit region. I want the Arabs, Canadians, the countryside, the city. The snow! Christmas! It would be really awesome..1!!

Prefer Male Characters for my shooters and Female Characters for my Fantasy needs.

I honestly don't think that they would ever make a female the lead. Unless its a dual story where you can choose Male or Felmale both with complete stories.

if there is multiple protagonists then rockstar should let one of them be a female.

but i prefer male protagonists, most gta players are male and won't be able to relate to a female protagonist.

all of the past gta characters were easy to relate to because they had male problems.

GTA going multiplat has ruined this franchise. Should've stayed exclusive to Sony.
BlmThug  +   1288d ago
Never was exclusive to Sony in the first place

Not sure if going simultaneous multiplatform is the reason, but GTA 4 was indeed a huge let down.

A Female lead would make zero sense. I mean, can anyone name a famous, or infamous, woman gangster? No, they've all been men because men are the ones that are naturally more violent and aggressive.

Iknow a lot of develoopers want more female leads in games, but it has to make sense. You don't have to put it in every game.

I don't know what gangsters are like in America, but a buttload of gangsters here in Australia are women. You should try checking out the 'Underbelly' tv series. It's based on real stories about Australian gangsters, and the female ones are just as scary as the males. Especially Underbelly Razor, which centers around the crime-lords Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine:

And recently there have been a lot of gang related articles on the news, particularly about the deceased crime-lord Carl Williams (who was married to another gangster Roberta Williams). There is also Judy Moran who is one of the best-known gangsters in Australia. She worked with Suzanne Kane, who is also a female gangster.

I wouldn't buy it if a woman was the lead character. However I think there should be a option for all walks of life, man, woman, white, black, straight and everything else!

Bad idea. Just look at how much Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 are hated.
TheColbertinator  +   1282d ago
The games aren't hated because of the women.They are hated because they just plain suck.
