League of Legends MMO in development, announces the Riot Games executive

Riot Games is making an MMORPG, although it was announced in a rather unusual way. This upcoming MMO will be the first foray into the genre by the developers behind League of Legends and Valorant. On Twitter, Riot Vice President of Intellectual Property and Entertainment Greg Street wrote on Twitter that he is committed to a new project that will develop the League of Legends universe. When asked if he was an MMO, Street directly confirmed he would be on Twitter.

While a major project, such as the League of Legends MMO, is not usually announced on a personal Twitter account, the move makes sense for Riot, who has worked hard in recent years to expand his stable game beyond League of LegendsFor the past two years, Riot has developed and released Legends of Runeterra, a competitive card game based on the League of Legends universe; as well as Valorant, a competitive shooter based on an original IP.

Riot has also announced Riot Forge, a publishing initiative in which Riot will collaborate with external developers on games and other projects based in the League of Legends universe. One of his first projects is Ruined King, a LoL RPG role-playing game coming to consoles and PCs in 2021.

There’s also a fighting game that Riot has been quietly working on for years, as well as Arcane, an animated TV series League of Legends, as if Riot wasn’t busy enough.

IGN contacted Riot for clarification and we were shown to Street’s tweet. But this is another League of Legends project announced then. Stay tuned for more updates in this regard in the future.
