RWBY Game

Publisher Arc System Works and developer WayForward, in collaboration with Rooster Teeth, have announced the production of a new game based on RWBY. It will launch for multiple platforms in 2021.

The new RWBY game will feature an original story written by show writers Kerry Shawcross, Miles Luna, and Eddy Rivas, and creative oversight by Rooster Teeth,. Players will take control of Team RWBY—Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long—and utilize their trademark weapons and abilities to deliver the stylish action the series is known for.

Voldi Way, WayForward CEO

“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, Arc System Works Chief Producer

“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.”

Kerry Shawcross, RWBY Writer

“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.”
