Whether it’s the game’s eye for detail when it comes to intoxicants, the socially progressive undercurrent of its Old West narrative, or a morbidly lustful romance between siblings, we’re taking a look at things only adults will notice in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead 2 made a lot of waves leading up to its release, and one story that garnered a lot of attention was Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser’s interview with New York magazine, in which he discussed the company’s rigorous and demanding workload. The phrase « 100-hour weeks » has been haunting Rockstar since, as outrage and condemnation over the company’s allegedly unfair working conditions quickly swept the internet. We can only imagine Rockstar’s discomfort when fans uncovered one particularly scathing Easter egg hidden among the game’s Weaponry catalog.
The Cattleman Revolver ad reads, in part:
« It is made by skilled laborers who work tireless hours each week and on the weekends for little pay in order to bring you the finest revolver in the field today. »
With its veiled first-person account of what it’s like to work for Rockstar Games, this Easter egg hits the publisher close to home.
