Work on the second volume of animated series RWBY is underway.

Animator Monty Oum and Rooster Teeth's series RWBY will premiere its second volume of RWBY at RTX2014 in July. Its online premiere will happen shortly afterward, producer Gray Haddock announced.

Production is underway, and the scripts are nearly finished. Volume 2 will have 12 chapters with each being about 12 minutes long. Haddock mentioned plenty of teasers in the meantime leading up to volume 2, and he included the first piece of promotional art from art director Kristina Nguyen.

Volume 1 saw some chapters taking place over a couple weeks, split up into different episodes, but that will not be the case for the second volume; each week's web release will contain the full chapter. Haddock said he anticipates following the premiere, RWBY will have a chapter online each week for a few weeks, take some time off, and then resume. During the off weeks, there will be "new story content from the world of RWBY," but Haddock did not elaborate and said details would be disclosed later.

RWBY is an anime-styled web series created by Monty Oum. The series' debut took place at RTX 2013. RWBY's story focuses on four girls who form a team to train to hunt monsters in a school setting. Each character has a special weapon and powers. The first volume also saw a second team form, called JNPR for four different character. Volume 1 concluded in November 2013.

RTX 2014 takes place in Austin, Texas, July 4-6. Tickets for the event go on sale tomorrow.
