On October 3rd, 2019, a month before Volume 7 began airing, the crew announced that writing for Volume 8 had already begun.
Concept art and development was well underway by the end of November, 2019.
Voice recording sessions for key characters began on February 4th, 2020.
The writing process of Volume 8 was completed on April 8th, 2020.
Animation for Volume 8 had started by March 2020.
On May 21st, 2020, RoosterTeeth Productions and Full Sail University announced a collaboration for the production of Volume 8. Full Sail University students and graduates are given exclusive opportunities to design a Grimm that will be featured in Volume 8. The RWBY animation team will select the top five submissions for Rooster Teeth fans to vote on, with the contest ending on June 21st, and voting starting on July 7th and ending on July 12th, 2020. On July 13th, a community announcement was made by RoosterTeeth, in which it was felt that the voting and response to contestants online violated the Code of Conduct upheld for the community and staff. For this reason, they closed voting and instead will select a winner via a panel of judges from the show.
On September 7th, 2020, more sneak peak clips were released through the Mark AR app at a Pre-RTX event in Dallas, Texas.
The teaser trailer for the volume was released on September 16th, 2020 as a part of the RTX @ Home RWBY Panel. It was also revealed that the volume will premiere on November 7th, 2020, and will run for 14 episodes.
Volumes 8 and 9 are being created together and are unofficially even called a single volume with how things flow together.
As of the production of Volumes 8 and 9, this Volume proved to be the most challenging season to write in the series.
