On Feb 15th, 2019 a teaser trailer was shared via Dropbox by StealthRG on Discord. The teaser covers what appears to be a younger Chipz and 3 other people donning similar matching uniforms as him. The uniforms appear to be of a military, student type nature, or both. As a powerful magical spell is released Chipz together with his fellows take cover behind a magical shield as the spell detonates like a bomb before them.
On May 5th, 2019 the Official Chipz Season 5 Trailer was released announcing the release date of Season 5 to be on May 15th 10pm CST.
Ascension Academy as of year 3 has 2 weekly episodes:
Monday - 7:30PM Pacific Time / 9:30PM Central Time / 10:30PM Eastern Time
Satruday - 7:30PM Pacific Time / 9:30 Central Time / 10:30PM Eastern Time
- "Pink Squad" is not an actual squad but the nickname for all the pink-haired students at the academy. Namely Vevina, Cari, Arbor and Esmae.
- The teaser trailer was first revealed and shared on StealthRG's Discord.
- The uniforms with a crest (coat-of-arms) were released early which looked very similar to the one of Hogwarts, hinting at a magical school type theme in the roleplay. This turned out to be true.
- There is a sizable group of behind the scenes actors referred to as The Army of Darkness, or AoD, who portray various NPC characters and monsters to help flesh out the world and make the roleplay possible.
- Season 5 was delayed for many months that it's eventual release date announcement was met with mixed feelings of both joy in anticipation and skepticism.
- The series name "Season 5" is often joked and "memed" about by members in the VRChat community for being delayed for so long, sometimes even by Stealth himself.
