Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number takes place in a heavily anachronistic order before and after the events of the original, focusing more on the latter between October and December 1991.
During the events of Hotline Miami, the player’s character, “Jacket,” is unwittingly manipulated into killing off the leadership of the Russian Mob by 50 Blessings, a neo-nationalist terror cell that masquerades as a peaceful activist group. The persona of “Richard”, a mysterious figure in a rooster mask that occasionally appeared to Jacket in the original game, appears at different points to the game’s playable characters.
The final act of the game is centered on the Son, who is trying to reclaim his father’s empire from Colombian gangsters who filled the power vacuum the old boss’ death left.
The player controls these individuals in a series of intersecting plotlines exploring both the background and the aftermath of Jacket’s rampage.
In 1991, the escaped Richter tells his story to Evan in exchange for plane tickets for his mother to come to Hawaii. Evan’s marriage and finances, however, are under pressure as he spends more time working on his book, and the player must choose whether he abandons the book or his family.
