Red Dead Redemption 2 fans discover cut content that was 'way too dark'

Red Dead Redemption 2 fans discover cut content that was 'way too dark'

It's hard to believe it could get any darker

It is common that as a result of open-world titles being so large, a lot of content will be cut. However, that hasn’t stopped dedicated fans from recently discovering some cut dialogue from Red Dead Redemption 2.

With Red Dead Redemption 2 taking around 60 hours just to complete the main story, let alone side quests, random events and more, there is no denying that its scale makes it one of the biggest open-world titles of all time.

As a result, it is clear that Rockstar Games would have had to cut a lot of planned features, and in this case dialogue, in order to not overwhelm players.

However, what they couldn’t predict was that Red Dead Redemption 2 would go on to become one of the most popular games of all time and fans are desperate for more content, even if that is just a newly discovered voice line or two.

That was the discussion that took place over on r/reddeadredemption after one use drew attention to unearthed “interesting cut dialogue”. Featuring a listen at Jack Marston’s original voice and John Marston’s visit to Arthur’s grave in the epilogue, this gives fans insight into early decisions made by the developers.

Most interestingly however, is cut dialogue which shows Arthur as we have never heard him before. Taking place during the mission “Outlaws from the West”, we hear Arthur Morgan sounding a lot more angry than we are used to but there may be a reason for that according to one fan.

They said: “Note: Arthur was supposed to be a much more cold and angry character in the game, as his baby was supposed to die in the opening scene, which is why Arthur sounds so p**sed.”

That would definitely explain his furious tones but it was believed Rockstar scrapped this idea after deeming it “way too dark”.
