Austin, TX — Friday, March 28, 2014— Rooster Teeth is excited to announce that RTX 2014, the event where gaming meets the Internet, will be the convention’s biggest year ever!  30,000 attendees are expected to fill the Austin Convention Center this July 4 – 6 where they will check out new products and releases from exhibitors, participate in panels led by industry experts including the Rooster Teeth team, and have the opportunity to play the latest video games with other gaming and Internet enthusiasts.


The RTX 2014 exhibitor, special guest, and programming lineup is growing daily with announcements to come in the weeks leading up to this year’s big event.


“We are amazed at the level of exhibitor interest in our show this year,” says Alan Abdine, Rooster Teeth Director of Business Development.  “We already have over 30 signed companies including The Behemoth, Iron Gaming, Divekick and Breakfall, the developers of fan favorite PC game Starwhal. Just as exciting are the huge announcements we will make later in April regarding some rather massive game company participation.”


To kick off this year’s big event, RTX is excited to announce the first wave of programming and special guests. Rooster Teeth’s wildly popular and award-winning anime series RWBY will premiere the first episode of RWBY: VOLUME 2 at RTX 2014, weeks ahead of its highly anticipated online debut.  Attendees can also expect multiple Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter panels, and signings with their favorite Rooster Teeth cast and crew members.   The initial lineup of special guests includes legendary comic book writer Chris Claremont, Greg Miller with a live broadcast of The GameOverGreggy Show, “Slowbeef” and “Dia Betus” from Retsupurae, and The Creatures.  RTX 2014 evening events include a Master Pancake Theater event and an attendee party featuring live music, DJ, and plenty of Rooster Teeth surprises.
