According to Houser, Red Dead Redemption 2 features around 1200 actors. 500 of which are motion capture artists while the 700 are voice actors.

Red Dead Redemption 2 plot is over 60 hours long despite Rockstar Games cutting 5 hours of content from it.
According to Dan Houser, Arthur Morgan had a second love interest in Red Dead Redemption 2 which was over 5 hours of content. But, Rockstar cut the content as the devs felt that it “didn’t work”.
Not only that, several other missions were also cut from the game. Houser revealed that the reason behind cutting these missions was that “they were never going to work technically or be quite slick enough, or they felt superfluous”.
Houser noted that they have put a lot of effort into the game and the result of all that effort is “this seamless, natural-feeling experience in a world that appears real, an interactive homage to the American rural experience. [It’s] a vast four-dimensional mosaic in which the fourth dimension is time, in which the world unfolds around you, dependent on what you do”.
Speaking of the game, the game will see the return of the iconic Dead Eye system. However, this time around Rockstar Games has made it much more sophisticated.
