Red Dead Revolver

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.[1]

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,[2][3] and the game was announced by Capcom in March 2002.[4] It was originally intended to be a spiritual successor to Capcom’s Gun.Smoke, a 1985 arcade shoot ’em up designed by Yoshiki Okamoto.[5]

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.[6][7]Following the purchase, Rockstar Games executives reviewed projects in development at the studio, so to sort out what was worth keeping.[8] 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.[8] 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,[9][10] Capcom cancelled the title in August 2003.[11] However, Rockstar Games acquired the rights to Red Dead Revolver the following December,[12][13]and let Rockstar San Diego go on to develop what would become the first installment in the acclaimed Red Dead series
