Red Dead Redemption 2 boasts a remarkable lineup of characters, with the likes of Arthur Morgan, John Marston, Dutch van der Linde, and the ever-wise Hosea. One of the game’s true delights lies in the opportunity to forge bonds with these remarkable individuals. However, as Red Dead Online updates become infrequent and the inevitable rise of GTA 6 looms on the horizon, it is with a heavy heart that we must share some somber tidings. Today, we bid farewell to Cain, the beloved dog who faithfully accompanied us during our stay at Clemens Point. Let us raise a glass in remembrance of this legendary Red Dead Redemption 2 companion.
Jason Barnes, a seasoned animator who played a vital role at Rockstar in overseeing the movements of Einstein, the real-life dog who performed motion capture for Arthur Morgan’s loyal four-legged friend, shares the sorrowful news of Cain’s passing. Now serving as an animation director at inXile Entertainment, Barnes reflects on the unfortunate loss of his cherished companion.
“Einstein was truly an extraordinary being. Our paths crossed, and an unbreakable bond was forged, setting the stage for countless adventures that awaited us. You were more than just a canine companion; you were a legend in your own right. Your brilliance and unwavering devotion made you shine above all others. You were there to provide solace during moments of sorrow, to revel in the purest moments of happiness, and to lend an empathetic ear whenever I needed someone to confide in.
“Though our time together has reached its inevitable end, your memory shall endure eternally. While Red Dead Redemption 2 immortalized you as Cain, it is the memories we crafted together that truly keep your spirit alive. The lessons you imparted on loyalty, love, and embracing life to its fullest extent will forever be etched in my heart.”
In addition, inXile Entertainment offers their heartfelt tribute to Einstein, stating, “His presence in the office always brought us joy, and his absence is deeply felt. We already miss him dearly.” The company shares a poignant snapshot of Einstein adorned in a complete motion-capture suit, capturing the essence of his incredible contributions.
The next time you find yourself immersed in the vast world of Red Dead Redemption 2, and Cain approaches you with a wagging tail and a joyful tongue, be sure to shower him with all the love and affection you can muster. Rest in peace, dear Einstein. You truly were the epitome of a good boy.
