Being a massive fan of Rooster Teeth’s Latest award winning anime web series, RWBY, it is great to find out that we will soon be able to get ready to save the world of Remnant as Ruby, Weiss, Yang and Blake, because Team RWBY is being brought to a video game. Announced during the RWBY panel at RTX, the annual gaming and internet convention in Austin, TX, hosted by by Rooster Teeth. The fan-made game by 19-year-old Jordan Scott impressed Monty and the team so much that they have hired Scott and brought the game in-house.
Here is what Rooster Teeth had to say:
“RWBY is a natural choice for us to focus on for our first in-house produced video game. Fans can expect that we will bring the same level of originality in action, comedy and design to the video game that has made the RWBY animated series such a hit. We’re excited about expanding the RWBY universe, and also excited that this is a project that originated as a homegrown community endeavor,” said Matt Hullum, Rooster Teeth CEO and Co-Founder.
The RWBY video game began as a playable demo presented to Rooster Teeth by community member Jordan Scott, a 19 year old video game development prodigy. The demo, which will be playable by RTX’s more than 30,000 attendees in the Rooster Teeth Experience area of the RTX show floor, was so impressive that Rooster Teeth brought Jordan on to work with RWBY web series creator Monty Oum to develop a full game.
The RWBY video game will be a multi-player, team-based game featuring characters and environments from the hit RWBY web series. Players will play as Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang, using each character’s magical powers and weapons against supernatural monsters and adversaries as they battle to save the world of Remnant.”
At this time, no release date has been announced, or what platforms to expect the game on. But you don’t have to worry as your RWBY craving will be filled in less then 3 weeks, as Season 2 begins on the 24th July on the official Rooster Teeth site
