Many of the games Rockstar Games develops usually have a deeply involved story that players can lose themselves in. On top of this, many of Rockstar's games also feature a large open-world for players to explore and immerse themselves in. Despite the high-quality storytelling in many of Rockstar's games, there has been almost no story centered around a female protagonist playable by the player. Though this might seem surprising, Rockstar does have a few games in its catalog where players can play as female protagonists if they choose, though they may be difficult to find today.
Before Rockstar Leeds was known as such, it was called Mobius Entertainment, and the games it developed were mainly on the Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance. Two of these games featured a female protagonist, though unsurprising, given the brand that the games were made for. These games were Barbie Horse Adventures: Blue Ribbon Race and Barbie Horse Adventures: Wild Horse Rescue, the former released for the Game Boy Advance and the latter released on the PS2, both in 2003. Though both were co-developed with Blitz Games, they are the only games in Rockstar Leed's history to feature a female protagonist. Both games were not received well by critics.
Rockstar Leeds would become a supporting developer under the Rockstar umbrella, porting high-quality games such as The Warriors, Manhunt 2, and Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition to PSP. Rockstar Leeds would eventually help with development on titles such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Grand Theft Auto 5, and Max Payne 3.
Though Rockstar Games would eventually acquire these game development studios, one of Rockstar's first studio acquisitions was responsible for the original Grand Theft Auto games in the late 90s. Originally founded as DMA Design Limited in 1987, the studio would go on to test the waters with various game titles for the Amiga, Commodore 64, Atari, and more. It wasn't until the original Grand Theft Auto was developed and released in 1997 that DMA Design Limited would become much more notable. After development finished on Grand Theft Auto 2 and Grand Theft Auto 3, DMA Design Limited became Rockstar Studios.
The original Grand Theft Auto may surprise some fans in that it did include the option to play as a female protagonist. Grand Theft Auto 1 had the option of four women that the player could choose to play as, though this didn't change the gameplay or story whatsoever and was more for flavor than anything. These first-ever female protagonists in the Grand Theft Auto universe were known as Ulrika, Mikki, Divine, and Katie. Though the Grand Theft Auto series wouldn't stop with the first iteration, the Game Boy Color version of Grand Theft Auto 2 included two selectable female protagonists, Gretchen and Candy.
Other than the Grand Theft Auto series, Red Dead Redemption has had its fair share of success comparable to the GTA series. With a large and detailed story with a complicated cast of characters in the Red Dead universe, there are many strong female characters that are involved, most notably fan-favorite Sadie Adler. Players have been wanting a prequel to Red Dead Redemption featuring Sadie Adler, though there is no telling what Rockstar's plans are for the future of the series. Thankfully, much like Grand Theft Auto: Online, fans can create their own western femme fatale in Red Dead Online and still experience what Rockstar's wild west has to offer.
