Three characters and they're all male. Why is Rockstar afraid of progress?

This game would have been the perfect way to ease sandbox gamers into embracing a female protagonist that isn't a sex symbol. How awesome would it have been to be able to play as that latina beat cop along with the other two characters? According to the magazine article, Rockstar was trying to differentiate between the three main characters, so why not add a female?

Now we're stuck with the EXACT SAME archetypes we've seen before in countless movies, tv shows, and games(even GTA games)

-A 'retired' mobster who gets back into the game for the glory/money (Toni Cipriani from GTA: Liberty City Stories, any older guy from any mob movie ever)

-A streetwise and level headed career criminal/gangbanger (CJ, Niko, Vic Vance)

-A crazy, deluded nutcase who doesn't give a **** (Tommy Vercetti)

I guess Rockstar is out of stories and is just sticking to what the know instead of trying to innovate.

Why should it matter what sex the protagonist is? Seems pretty sexist of you to demand a female character.

Why is innovation so reliant on what gender the character's are? As long as their stories are interesting, their personalities fleshed out, why does it matter? The majority of people playing GTA5 will be male and they are going to want to relate to the characters, and become immersed in the game.

My guess is that he is a lonely teenager that wants to fantasize about a female character.
