Red Dead Redemption 2 Teaser Focuses On Dutch

A "Wanted" poster for the gang leader may share some new insight into the story of the PS4 and Xbox One game.


Rockstar Games has posted a new teaser of sorts for the much-anticipated open-world western Red Dead Redemption 2. This comes in the form of a Wanted poster for Dutch Van Der Linde, the leader of the Van Der Linde gang at the heart of the story.

The poster explains that Dutch robbed a boat in Blackwater and made off with $150,000; he is also wanted, dead or alive, on multiple counts of murder. The poster also gives us some insight into who Dutch is as a person. "A charismatic, manipulative individual believed to harbor subversive, anti-American ideals." He's in his mid-forties and has dark hair.

Dutch was one of the central antagonists in Red Dead Redemption 1, while his role in the sequel--which is a prequel to the first game--will see him playing a bigger part.

Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC release is rumoured, but Rockstar has made no official announcement as of yet.

The first gameplay footage for Red Dead Redemption 2 premiered in September--and it was impressive. For more, check out GameSpot's breakdown of everything we know so far.
