Red Dead Redemption 2 will have good female characters, right? Not just damsels in distress?
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a highly-anticipated game release this year, and while many are excited for it, many are curious as to how Rockstar Games will portray some of the female characters. For while there will be some “lower class” ones no doubt (as it was the time period), many are hoping that there will be some very strong ones as well. Dan House, the Co-Founder of Rockstar Games, made sure to note in a recent interview that not only will there be strong female characters, but it’s actually essential to the time period:
“It was a time when women were beginning to question [their roles], and the Wild West was an area where people could invent themselves for the first time; many of the people who were inventing themselves were women,” said Houser. “They were no longer constrained by society, because there was no society.”
We’ll see for ourselves when Red Dead Redemption 2 releases on October 26th.
