WayAhead has introduced this night that it has teamed up with Rooster Teeth and Arc System Works to create a new video game primarily based on the hit animation, RWBY. The game is due out on a number of platforms in 2021. The firm says that “Rooster Teeth will deliver an original RWBY story for the game from the show’s writers, Kerry Shawcross, Miles Luna, and Eddy Rivas, and provide creative oversight, while development will be handled by WayForward and publishing duties will be split between WayForward and Arc System Works.” More particulars will likely be introduced at a future date.

“It’s a massive honor to be trusted with a beloved brand like RWBY,” stated WayAhead Tyrannical Overlord Voldi Way. “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.”

“To this day and date, I still cannot forget the awe when I first saw Monty’s RWBY,” added Mori Toshimichi, chief producer at Arc System Works. “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.”
