GTA 6 story ‘inspired by Miami drug trade’ and Escobar cartel claims new rumour

GTA 6 could have a storyline based on one of the most infamous drug baronesses in US history, according to rumours.

Eagle-eyed GTA observers noted that in a 2013 interview, Rockstar Games co-founder Sam Houser said that a 2006 documentary about the Miami drug trade is 'potentially good source material for a Rockstar game about female criminals'.

The film follows the growth of the drugs trade in Miami throug the 1970s and 1980s, including the smuggling ring between Florida and south America.

It also explores the story of Griselda Blanco, aka the 'Black Widow', who was the matriarch of Pablo Escobar's cartel and is said to have played a key role in the drugs trade in Miami.

The story is said to have inspired Scarface and Miami Vice. If true, it would move the series to focus on criminals involved in the drugs trade, unlike GTA V which followed a group of bank robbers.

Twitter user GTA 6 News & Leaks shared the interview, saying: "Sam Houser cited 'Cocaine Cowboys' a documentary about the Miami drug trade, as potentially good source material for a R* game about female criminals."

They added: "Rumour. Take it with a grain of salt."

Last week it was confirmed that GTA 6 will feature the series' first playable female protagonist.

According to a Bloomberg report, the game will be set in the Miami-inspired 'Vice City' and will star a Latina woman as one of two playable characters.

Some GTA fans believe the character will be portrayed Puerto Rican voice actor Alexandra Echavarri, whose acting portfolio states she recently did voiceover work for an unnamed 'principal character' in a Rockstar game.

There is no confirmation by Rockstar that this is the case.
