During RTX at Home, Rooster Teeth announced a new partnership with WayForward Games and Arc System Works to bring about a new RWBY title for fans to enjoy. We know that we’ll get to play as team RWBY and sadly the only other detail is that it’s hopefully releasing on multiple platforms in 2021. That’s the extent of our knowledge. We don’t even have a title. Hopefully, this game will get more support than many of the previous RWBY titles. I do like a lot of WayForward’s games, so that is very exciting.
Initially revealed during Rooster Teeth’s virtual RTX at Home event, the upcoming game will let players take control of Team RWBY — Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long — and use their trademark weapons and abilities to deliver the stylish action that has made RWBY a sensation with audiences worldwide. Additional information about the gameplay, features, distribution, and pricing will be revealed at a later date.
Voldi Way of WayForward released the following statement:
It’s a massive honor to be trusted with a beloved brand like RWBY. Collaborating with the innovators at Rooster Teeth has been a blast, and we think the characters, personality, and style of RWBY are a great match for WayForward’s design sensibilities. We hope that fans are looking forward to seeing their favorite Huntresses in action as much as we’re looking forward to bringing the game to them.
Mori Toshimichi of Arc System Works said:
To this day and date, I still cannot forget the awe when I first saw Monty’s RWBY. At the same time, I cannot thank enough to all of Rooster Teeth for giving us the chance to have RWBY participate in Blazblue Cross Tag Battle. We are also in deep gratitude to WayForward for bringing us River City Girls. And now that we’re all in this new RWBY project, I am tremendously thrilled to the coming of this new masterpiece.
Finally, Kerry Shawcross of Rooster Teeth said:
As huge fans of WayForward’s and Arc System Works’ past games, we could not be more excited. Bringing a new RWBY game to life in one of our favorite genres, and with two of our favorite developers, feels like a dream scenario to us.
