A devastating Red Dead Redemption 2 bug has been discovered. Four important characters could potentially go missing for whole story chapters. It's advised that every single RDR2 player needs to find out if they've been affected.

Red Dead 2 Bug Causes 4 Important Characters To Go Missing
UPDATE: Rockstar Support have responded to players who've reached out to them about the issue with this message:

''We are sorry to hear that you are unable to find the Sadie, Abigail and jack and we can help you further. We would like to inform you that, if the mission “Polite Society, Valentine Style” is failed, restart the mission instead of using the "Retry Checkpoint" option. If you have already completed the mission after using the Retry Checkpoint" option, they will not be present until the start of Chapter 4.

We appreciate your understanding in this regard. If you have any other issues, feel free to contact us.''
Red Dead Redemption 2 launched last week and has taken the gaming world by storm. However, Rockstar’s massive Western-themed action-adventure title contains a huge bug that many players have been affected by. Large numbers of RDR2 players will be completely unaware they've been hit by it. If you play the game, there's a huge possibility your playthrough has been impacted by the issue.

Reddit user, Lasypanda, discovered this devasting bug and posted a thread on the Red Dead Redemption subreddit earlier to warn new players and inform those who may have already been affected.

The bug involves four important members of the van der Linde gang potentially going missing for the entierty of certain Red Dead 2 players' games. These characters include: protagonist of the first Red Dead Redemption game, John Marston and his son, Jack, his partner Abigail Roberts and the gunslinging widow, Sadie Adler.

The issue can strike when players in Chapter 2 decide to begin Uncle’s mission (Polite Society, Valentine Style) before speaking to John Marston, Jack Marston, Abigail Roberts and Sadie Adler. Doing so could result in losing all four characters. They will still appear in main story missions but other than that, they may well be gone for good.

This would be a great shame and many who have been hit by the issue are considering starting a fresh game as they feel they've missed out. If you’ve been wondering why you never see these four characters at the van der Linde camp then unfortunately, chances are that you have been affected by the bug.

Lasypanda has offered a solution to the issue for new players who’ve yet to reach the second chapter by following these steps:
  1. Save your game at the start of Chapter 2 (to do this, hit pause and select Story then Save Game and choose a slot). 
  2. Speak to John, Abigail, Jack and Sadie. 
  3. Sleep at your bed in Arthur’s tent until the morning.
  4. Do ANY mission other than ''Polite Society, Valentine Style'' - which is triggered by speaking to Uncle.
  5. After this, go back to camp and check if all four characters are still present.
It’s worth noting that some players are reporting that the missing characters will return in later chapters of the story but we don't know if this is the case for everyone.

Many people have reached out to Rockstar to inform them and hopefully we should receive a response from the developers shortly.
