Predator 2 is a novelization written by Simon Hawke. It was released on December 1, 1990 by the publishing company Jove.
The novelization provided a small amount of information regarding the fate of "Dutch" from the first film. Peter Keyes recalls memories of speaking with the battered Major while infirmed in a hospital, suffering from radiation sickness.
"Dutch" is said to have escaped from the hospital, never to be seen again. Furthermore, the novel tells a great deal of the story from the Predator's point of view, such as its humiliation of having its mask removed by Mike Harrigan, and its reasoning for not killing Leona Cantrell due to its discovery of her pregnancy.
