Risk of Rain 2 Bandit might be the next playable character, according to a data mine of the game. If confirmed, Bandit will be added to the current list of six character classes available.

Risk of Rain 2 Bandit: Data Mine Suggests Bandit is Next Character 

A fan and Reddit user discovered a fully rendered Bandit in the files for Risk of Rain 2. The fan's data mine suggested Bandit will be the next character added to the game, and the screenshot of Bandit appears convincing enough. That being said, there is no confirmation Bandit will be the next character developers add to the game. 

Duncan Drummond, co-founder of Hopoo Games, which developed Risk of Rain 2, took to Twitter to tell fans data mined content didn't mean it would definitely become future content. 

​​In the game's Discord server, Drummond also explained Bandit was planned as a future release, but the team was unhappy with the direction and did not put him in the game's current version. It is unknown if the team is working on Bandit for release when the game is no longer in early access.
