Red vs. Blue: Revelation is the eighth full season of Red vs. Blue. It is a follow-up to Recreation and wraps up all of the events started in Reconstruction and continued in Recreation. Revelation premiered on April 1, 2010, Red vs. Blue's seventh anniversary, and the finale aired on September 13, 2010, just one day before the release of Halo: Reach.

Revelation is distinguished as the first season of Red vs. Blue that extensively uses pre-rendered character animation, separate from the Halo engine, allowing for actions not possible within a multiplayer game of Halo. It is the third and final installment in The Recollection.

  • At PAX 2010 Rooster Teeth showed off an advance screening of Revelation, showing off CGI (by Monty Oum) mixed in with machinima.
  • This season was previously titled "Resolutions", but was renamed "Revelation" for unknown reasons.
  • This is the first season of Red vs. Blue to have its own personal soundtrack.
  • Whenever a character's battle rifle appears in CGI, it is a Halo 2 model battle rifle.
  • The Revelation teaser image foreshadows the episode Reunion, in which the Meta stabs Tex in the face, shatters her helmet, and captures her.
  • On the teaser image, Epsilon's reflection can be seen on Tex's visor.
  • While Revelation was still being written, it could not be decided where the final battle would be. Burnie Burns wanted Standoff, while Matt Hullum wanted Sandtrap. The suggestion to do the scene on Avalanche, was Nathan Zellner's, and it was settled.
