Red Dead Revolver is a Western action-adventure third-person shooter video game developed by Rockstar San Diego and published by Rockstar Games. The first entry in the Red Dead series, it was released for PlayStation 2 and Xbox in North America on May 4, 2004, and in Europe on May 28, 2004.
Rockstar San Diego, at the time known as Angel Studios, began working on Red Dead Revolver under the oversight and funding of Japanese video game publisher Capcom in 2000, and the game was announced by Capcom in March 2002. It was originally intended to be a spiritual successor to Capcom’s Gun.Smoke, a 1985 arcade shoot ’em up designed by Yoshiki Okamoto.
In November 2002, Take-Two Interactive, parent company of Rockstar Games, announced that they had acquired Angel Studios, with it being moved to the Rockstar Games label and being renamed Rockstar San Diego.Following the purchase, Rockstar Games executives reviewed projects in development at the studio, so to sort out what was worth keeping. Dan Houser, creative director at Rockstar Games, remarked that the game “looked very good” and caught the review team’s eyes, despite it being in an unplayable state. Due to the troubled development leading to that unplayable state of the game, with it missing both the 2002 European Computer Trade Show and the 2003 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Capcom cancelled the title in August 2003. However, Rockstar Games acquired the rights to Red Dead Revolver the following December,and let Rockstar San Diego go on to develop what would become the first installment in the acclaimed Red Dead series
