Have you ever wanted to continue the story of Red Dead Redemption’s John Marston? Of course you have, and now you can thanks to GTA Online.
As spotted by TheGamer, Reddit has been playing with GTA Online’s character creation mode, which sees players create characters not on their own physical decisions, but on the appearance of their parents.
One Reddit user noted that the character creation now includes the one and only John Marston. Taking to the r/gamingdetails sub, the user share the following post, writing: “One of the optional fathers in the player creation screen of GTA Online is John Marston, a character from another Rockstar game, Red Dead Redemption. There’s no Abigail option to see if you can make Jack.”

Making John your dad means you could – in theory – play GTA Online as a canon Red Dead Redemption character, though of course, you couldn’t play as Marston’s son Jack. Jack may be half John. but his canon mother Abigail isn’t one of GTA Online’s mother options. Boo.
Still, you could maybe play as Jack’s evil half-sibling or something, that might be fun if you feel the story in GTA Online is a little lacking, or if you like to play the game with your own narrative.
Naturally, this is more of an Easter egg than an actual discussion of canon lore in the Rockstar games. If this genuinely were canon, it would cause a lot of timeline issues since Mr. Marston died in 1911 and GTA V released in 2013.
Have you been playing with John as yer da in GTA Online?
