GTA Online players discover a Red Dead Redemption Easter Egg

A GTA Online player discovered a Red Dead Redemption character in the game, as a merch worn by NPCs.

A Reddit user posted a photo of a deceased NPC wearing a red John Marston t-shirt layered over a black long-sleeved t-shirt. Marston is a main character in Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2. Marston is the playable protagonist of the original game and a major supporting character in Red Dead Redemption 2, its prequel. It’s clear that the Rockstar (RGU?) Game universe is intertwined and somewhat grounded in reality, as Red Dead Redemption exists in GTA Online‘s fictional Los Santos.

This isn’t the first time a GTA Online player has noticed John Marston on an NPC. Six years ago, Redditor EliasVT posted a photo of a similarly deceased NPC pulling on the shirt, which is also layered over a long sleeve t-shirt. Quite hilariously, both NPCs are dead, but that’s probably because it’s hard to take a good photo of Marston’s face on a moving (or running) character. According to EliasVT, they kept trying to take a picture of the NPC, but he started trying to fight their character from GTA Online, and therefore, according to the laws of the Wild West, he had to die. There’s a whole slew of videos and posts about the John Marston T-Shirt Easter Egg, so while it’s technically not a new find, it’s definitely a new one for us.

This is not his first appearance in GTA Online, as John Marston can be selected as a parent character model. During GTA Online’s character creation process, players are tasked with choosing their heritage by selecting a father and mother and using a slider to approximate the likeness of either. However, you can’t select Abigail Marston as your mother, which means you can’t make yourself Jack Marston, who you briefly control in Red Dead Redemption. John’s existence as a father in GTA Online also raises serious questions and canon issues, as the man died in the early 1900s and GTA 5 was released in 2013. That would make your character a very old criminal, isn’t it?

GTA Online is closing its doors on Xbox 360 and PS3.
