Hot off their port of Star Wars: Republic Commando, Aspyr is handling the Switch version on behalf of Rooster Teeth, the studio behind the hit anime. RWBY: Grimm Eclipse began as a fanmade project by Jordan Scott, before the project was acquired by Monty Oum and Rooster Teeth. It officially launched in July 2016 after six months on Steam Early Access and received periodic updates until November 2019.
