Rockstar is Revealing Red Dead Redemption 2 Characters on Twitter

No word yet on what else might be revealed.

Rockstar spent the day posting new portraits of the many characters appearing in its upcoming wester, Red Dead Redemption 2. While there are some familiar faces like Jack Marston, it's the rest of the Van der Linde crew that might worth studying up on since Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel.

Starting at around 5am today, the official Rockstar Games Twitter account began posting character portraits for Red Dead Redemption 2 starting with Dutch Van Der Linde. Each portrait came with a quote from the character, so for instance Dutch's quote, "They're chasing us hard, because we represent everything that they fear."

It isn't just Dutch's Crew that's getting portraits. Characters we haven't seen like Molly O'Shea, Karen Jones, Josiah Trelawny, and more have been revealed on Rockstar's Twitter via a character picture and quote. So far 22 characters have been introduced on Rockstar's Twitter, the most recent just 25 minutes ago at the time of this writing.

There's no word on when this will end, or what else might be revealed aside from these portraits. But if you're interested in anything that might reveal more about Red Dead Redemption 2 check out Rockstar's official Twitter feed.
