Every year, tons of exciting announcements come out of SDCC. This year is especially exciting because Rooster Teeth made a few of those announcements.
In tonight’s panel, we released information and dates about some really cool stuff we have coming up over the next six months. However, before I jump into the news of what’s to come, I have some quick news about what has come and gone... and come again! FIRST members will be happy to see some familiar shows popping up on Rooster Teeth: the first season of Day 5 is available right now, the second season of Day 5 will release on a weekly basis starting August 20 (entire season available on October 8), and episodes of Crunch Time have already started rolling in on a weekly basis (entire season available on August 22).
Now onto the news from SDCC!
First things first, Immersion is coming to Shark Week on Discovery on Saturday, August 3 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern! In this special episode, the Immersion crew answers a wide range of shark-fueled questions by taking some of the most iconic shark moments from pop culture history and bringing them to real life.
But wait, there’s another exciting thing happening on August 3 at 11:30 p.m. Eastern: gen:LOCK premieres on Adult Swim! For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, gen:LOCK is a mecha-anime style series starring Michael B. Jordan, Maisie Williams, Dakota Fanning, and David Tennant. And don’t worry – gen:LOCK will remain on Rooster Teeth while it airs on Adult Swim.
For those of you who have been waiting to watch RWBY Volume 6 on YouTube, the wait is almost over. The first episode of RWBY Volume 6 will be released on the Rooster Teeth Animation YouTube Channel on Sunday, October 12, with ensuing episodes going up each week after that. Tell your friends!
“October” starts with an “O,” which is just the fancy intellectual name for “circle,” so it only makes sense that the much-anticipated first season of Arizona Circle will premiere on Rooster Teeth on October 23! FIRST members get early access, and it’ll be free for everyone else on Rooster Teeth seven days later.
Continuing with the theme of much-anticipated premieres, RWBY Volume 7 premieres on Rooster Teeth on Saturday, November 2 for FIRST members! Everyone else can watch it for free on Rooster Teeth a week later.
If you’re itching for even more RWBY, the iconic heroines will soon become playable in the hit game Smite! Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long will face their toughest challenge yet: The Battleground of the Gods. More info to come later this year.
After the holidays, we’ll be back to wish you a Happy New Fear! No, that’s not a typo. That’s just my clever way of announcing that a new season of Haunter is coming to Rooster Teeth in January 2020! FIRST members get priority access to episodes, and everyone else can watch for free on Rooster Teeth a week later.
Finally, I’d like to round out all these exciting announcements to let you know that our latest game, Vicious Circle, will be available on Steam for just $20 starting August 13! Vicious Circle is an uncooperative multiplayer shooter in which four mercenaries compete for loot against a terrifying monster who wants to kill them. Dirty tricks are the key to victory, and only one player can come out on top. It’s super fun and we can’t wait for you to experience it.
