Hi you! Got an update for you about gen:LOCK! You did catch that first little announcement about casting the other week, right? There's more where that came from, so be on the lookout for more casting news and character reveals this summer.
Let's talk release schedule. Rooster Teeth has a lllloooootttttt of cool stuff that they are trying to balance over the next months (and years). Taking all that into account, the company has decided to start 2019 with a bang - and opening the year with gen:LOCK is the best way to do it. Thus, gL now has a release target of January 2019. We're still kicking around some fun ideas about how we might get some genlockiness into the world before 2018 is out, though.
The production is going amazingly well, and we can't wait to show you what we've been up to. I couldn't be prouder of the crew and everything they've been pouring themselves into. Some of you have had questions about how production of gL impacts RWBY or vice-versa, and the answer is that these are largely parallel productions with separate crews. Rooster Teeth Animation has been growing like crazy (keep an eye on the RT careers page if you feel like throwing your hat in the ring), and each show that RTanim makes is getting the focused attention it deserves. It does mean that some members of CRWBY are moving up, taking on new positions around the department as we continue to build. So keep an eye out for crewfolk announcing their new roles, and please show them all the love they deserve.
Lastly please enjoy the new motion poster announcing gL's date, as well as these little BTS snapshots I've been taking! I'll continue sharing this sort of stuff as we go.
