    • Achieve an X-Ray & Vav sneak peek!

      2 years ago


      Thanks for all the love everyone's showing the new season of "X-Ray and Vav!" And damn, but isn't Achievement Hunter rocking it over on their YouTube channel? Let's dip some animated chocolate in their peanut buttery gameplay goodness and see what happens, shall we...

      So, X&V will soon finish airing the first half of the current run of 10 episodes. Then there will be a break of about 4 weeks before the second half of the season returns. But you, yes you, can make this hiatus suck less!

      Go subscribe to AH's YouTube channel!! If you get them across the 750K subscribers mark BEFORE THE END OF RTX THIS WEEKEND, Rooster Teeth Animation will give you a scene from episode 6 during the hiatus, weeks ahead of schedule. Scratch that toon itch, get you your animated fix, and tide you over a little longer til we start broadcasting the new eps. YOU HAVE THE CLICKY POWER

      Goo Goo Gah Gah, Bitches,

    • X-Ray and Vaaaaaaaaaaav!

      2 years ago


      Can't seem to stop singing along with that song... Anyhoo -- Yes! It's the return of X-Ray & Vav this coming Saturday, July 18th! We have a whole 10 episodes in this wave, at least 7 minutes each, and they will run for 5 episodes, take a little break for a few weeks, then return for the next 5 episodes. And then there will still be a little more fun later in the year!

      Starting with X&V, we're putting RT Animation shows on Saturday mornings! So, RT sponsors will get the episodes as ACTUAL SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS starting at 10amCDT, and then they will go public on RT and YouTube the day after. We're also pondering stuff like during X&V's break, we may do something like marathon all the episodes in a PJs & sugarbomb cereal fueled Saturday morning livestream with cast & crew to get ready for the next wave of episodes -- let us know in the comments if you'd be interested in something like that! And what about contests -- like, oh, say cosplay photos? So stay tuned!

      Have you seen the new trailer yet? Check out the debut of our new cast members! Adventure Time's Flame Princess and BTVA Voice Actress of the Year 2014 Jessica DiCicco joins the cast as Ash! And Lazer Team hero Colton "Dun Dun Dunnn!" Dunn as hardboiled detective Flynt Coal! (yes, yes, we actually went for Flynt Colton). And then there's our new barbarian of mystery voiced by... was it Jack? Oh right, it's Brandon! Woo! No, wait... Ah, we'll figure it out. But more new characters and actors to be announced soon!

      So stick around -- Jordan and Lindsay have loads of hilarious escapades planned for our favorite superfools! And special thanks to our crew who are really knocking it out of the park this season, can't wait to show you what they've been up to!

      Additional animated adventures anon,

    • RWBY Volume 3

      3 years ago


      Greetings from Beacon-

      A few months ago, Rooster Teeth committed that we would indeed continue to tell the adventures of Ruby Rose and her friends. And today we're very happy to pass you a little note letting you know RT is making good on our promise.

      RWBY Volume 3 has gone into production!

      We've assembled a wonderful crew, bringing back so many of the people who have worked on the show the last two years, as well as some new faces who helped raise the game on RvB13. These last couple months, Miles and Kerry have been writing a set of 12 chapters, working from the outline they developed with Monty. We've been working closely with our tech team to develop some new enhancements to the look and feel of the show, as we did going into Volume 2. Our art and modeling team has been designing the new locations and characters we'll be introducing (including some we've been hinting at for a while). We've heard Ruby and friends talking to us for the first time this year, as we've pulled the core cast into the booth to record the first few episodes, and I've already begun assembling the episodes' edits. And now, starting this week, our first animators have rolled off from their final scenes on RvB to return to working on RWBY.

      I'd also like to announce that Kerry will be stepping up to take on directing responsibilities for this volume of RWBY, and Miles and I will have his back as co-directors. Kerry did a lot of heavy lifting the last couple years working with Monty as the show's co-director, and we felt it was natural for him to make his debut as a full director on this production. I'm sure you can imagine the challenges we are working through this year, so please do wish him and the crew well.

      There are many other happenings in the world of Remnant coming your way soon! Warner Brothers Japan has announced the first four members of their voice cast ( check out ) and they will have more announcements on that front very soon, including more casting (the list is pretty incredible) and the release date of the Japanese version. The development team for the RWBY video game is growing and work is accelerating. And there's a variety of more Volume 3 news to come -- including some exciting casting as well as this year's release schedule.

      The return to the world of RWBY is bittersweet, but mostly it's a relief. To see and hear the story come alive again, to reassemble the production family and see how everyone wants to do their very best for the show has been both inspiring and comforting. We hope that when you get to watch these new episodes later this year, you feel the same way. We're looking forward to being back in Remnant with you.

      Hope you've been well,

    • RT Showcase: The OceanMaker

      3 years ago


      We're trying something a little different today -- we're starting a new program called "Rooster Teeth Showcase" which will run from time to time and recommend stuff that we found so cool, we just had to share it with you! First up is a brand new post-apocalyptic animated action short called "The OceanMaker." The piece is made by RT community member Lucas Martell and fellow Austin TX based animation studio Mighty Coconut Productions, who also made the 2009 short "Pigeon Impossible."

      "The OceanMaker" will launch on 4/22/2015 on as part of the Earth Day Network. But Rooster Teeth is bringing it to RT Sponsors a day early! It's available right now at for Sponsors, and will go public to the wider RT community after 10am (CDT) Wednesday 4/22. Also, for one more day, if you buy any kind of copy of the short at, a tree will be planted in conjunction with The Canopy Project!

      Meanwhile, please kick back, crank the volume, put on your pilot's goggles, and enjoy "The OceanMaker." We hope you find it as badass as we did, and please let us know in the video's comments if you like the idea of RT Showcase. Thanks!!

    • RWBY Game Update!

      3 years ago


      "No more awkward small talk or 'getting-to-know-you' stuff. Today, I get to let my sweetheart do the talking!"

      It's Rooster Teeth's birthday, but it's sponsors who get the loot! We've updated the RWBY video game alpha with enhancements to what we now call the "Extermination" mission, including new Grimm, and a variety of tweaks to gameplay and the environment. And (drum roll, please) MULTIPLAYER! Up to four players can join a session and hunt Grimm together! Be sure to take a look at the new Player Guide here for more information.

      Thanks to everyone who's been checking out the game so far. We've got a comment system on the main game page now, so please do leave your feedback! Huge thanks to Jordan Scott who continues to kick all sorts of butt to bring these updates to you. And please say hello to new addition to the video game dev team, Michael Hadwin, who is starting with us just this week!

      There are all sorts of new plans being put together for the game, from characters and environments to new mission types, so stay tuned!

    • The Future of RWBY

      3 years ago


      Hello everyone-

      Given the excitement and questions that came out of PAX East over the weekend (sorry we couldn't be there!), maybe now would be a good time to talk briefly about the future of RWBY's production.

      RWBY Volume 3 will indeed premiere this year. While the animation crew is hard at work on RvB13, RWBY is returning to the early stages of pre-production. Kerry and Miles are getting ready to dive into the scripts, and I'm talking to the guys about pre-viz. Meanwhile, Shane's already choreographing a new fight sequence (Argh - want to tease this matchup so much! Let's just say Yang intends to teach someone a well-deserved lesson), and our tenacious tech team is getting the production pipeline ready.

      For those wondering, Monty was heavily involved in shaping the future of the world of Remnant. His story ideas will live on, and you will also be able to see some of the animation he'd begun working on for Volume 3. For some time, the team has known the direction in which the next volumes will be headed, and Rooster Teeth is committed to bringing these tales to you.

      So, while it's too early to go into any further detail, be assured that the adventures of Ruby Rose and her friends will continue as planned. 'Til then, please keep sharing your writing, art and photos. They mean so much, now more than ever. They keep us going, and we love seeing them as much as we love sharing our stories with you.

      Warm regards,
      Gray, Kerry, and Miles

      P.S. We also hear that, as we speak, AH is putting the finishing touches on "Let's Build: The Musical Motion Picture." Ask Jack about it! smiley0.gif
