Roger Clark, actor who plays the protagonist Arthur Morgan in Red Dead Redemption 2, has published a photo on his personal Instagram profile in which he can be seen next to Troy Baker, a prolific voice actor who is best known for his role as Joel in the series The Last of Us. This is not a personal image, but a professional one: both appear in the motion capture suit and Clark specifies that have worked together on a project that we still don’t know anything about.
The comment that Roger Clark has published next to the photograph is brief, but it gives us several clues that confirm that both are collaborating on a new video game. To begin with, we know that it is a video game and it does not body capture for another type of animation because one of the hashtags that the actor Arthur Morgan has used is precisely “#videogames”.
We also intuit, as they point out from Comicbook, that this photo would have been made with motion capture already completed, which could indicate that the announcement of this mysterious video game could be closer than we expect. To this must be added that Roger Clark himself admits that “can’t wait to show us everything this team did”, implying that production has reached a low point.
The rest of the text is full of praise from Roger Clark to Troy Baker: “I was going to say something funny but it has honestly been wonderful to work with Troy Baker and witness first hand why he is one of the best in the business”, we can read in the Instagram post. “His talent, dedication, experience and intelligence has helped make this project an enriching experience“, he ends up saying.
The truth is that Baker has extensive experience in the sector (rare is the game in which we do not hear his voice), but Clark has only participated so far in Red Dead Redemption 2, it could be new content for the cowboy game Rockstar Games? We will have to wait to see what it is about.
