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.
