Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 is the gift that keeps on giving, and some eagle-eyed fans have noticed something pretty interesting in the end credits of the game.
It started when a Twitter user noticed that actor Ned Luke’s name appeared in the credits of RDR2, with the actor himself then tweeting out to ask his fans whether or not they could spot his character in the new Rockstar title.

Ned Luke tweeted: “Spotted in credits…now can you find me in the game? Hint: They took away my voice work…gonna be hard to recognize, but the character work is still in there.”

If the name ‘Ned Luke’ isn’t ringing any bells for you then his voice definitely should, as the actor played the role of the iconic Michael De Santa in 2013’s Grand Theft Auto 5, known for being one of the most successful games of all time.
Rockstar fans have been eager to take up the Find Michael challenge, but it seems we’ve yet to come across his character just yet…

Although some players were disappointed to hear that Luke wasn’t given a speaking role in the game, others are just pleased to have him on-board with the latest offering from Rockstar.
Love how they got you back to do work for them in some capacity, GTAV had some of the best acting performances of 2013.

With Luke still not spilling the beans on his character in RDR2, it seems the search for Michael’s doppelgänger continues for now…
