Development Edit

Main article: RWBY

The first concept and writing meetings for Volume 6 began a week after the Volume 5 finale aired.[5] Voice acting recording sessions for key characters began in late May 2018.[6] During development, several people were added or promoted to key positions, including Connor Pickens, who replaced Miles Luna and Gray G. Haddock as co-director.

In an interview at RTX London 2018, Gray Haddock said matte painting backgrounds, a 2D-asset used often in the production of Rooster Teeth's mecha show gen:LOCK, would be implemented in Volume 6 in a more interactive way.[7]

On January 17th, 2018, it was announced that Volume 6 would premiere in the Fall.[8] On August 3rd, 2018, it was confirmed at RTX Austin that Volume 6 will premiere on October 27th, 2018.[9] That same day, an in-progress version of the "Volume 6 Adam Character Short" was also shown to attendees, which was later made available to the public on the 17th of August.

It was also announced that Volume 6 would only air initially on the Rooster Teeth site because many of the videos, including most of RWBY episodes that were uploaded to their main channel on YouTube, were demonetized for various reasons. However, beginning on October 12th, 2019, Volume 6 would air weekly on the Rooster Teeth YouTube channel for animation.[10] Additionally, FIRST members would be able to watch the show for an entire week before it was released to the public. The public would watch a new episode on Saturday a week after that episode went live for FIRST members.
