Through various social media platforms, players have spoken about the characters they would wish to return to the GTA universe. One of the characters that fans would be quite excited to see coming back to the franchise is Colonel Juan Cortez, the dreaded drug lord. If Cortez makes an appearance in GTA 6 along with his daughter Mercedes, the thrill factor in the game would definitely go a few notches higher.

Another character, whose reintroduction could make the game very exciting, is Ken Rosenberg, a renowned criminal lawyer. Rosenberg tasted a great amount of success by collaborating with Carl Johnson in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. While he has amassed a lot of wealth and is leading a retired life, it would be interesting for players to see him back in action.
