Development[edit | edit source]
- Main article: RWBY Development
The development for Volume 7 began shortly before the finale of Volume 6 aired. Eddy Rivas and Kiersi Burkhart were added as co-writers, in addition to Miles and Kerry. The first voice acting sessions for key characters happened on April 23rd.
The trailer for the volume was released on October 3rd, 2019.
Development for Volume 7 ended on January 30th, 2020, two days before the finale aired, with Sound Team wrapping up the final episode.
Originally, Cinder and Neo were intended to be more present in the Volume, but the crew had to cut back on their appearances, instead making them instrumental to Ironwood's collapse.
The sub-plot featuring Robyn Hill's efforts to obtain supplies to Mantle was a late addition to the Volume's outline.
