Riot Games has announced the founding of a new publishing label. The division will work with reliable third-party developers who wish to create games based on the League of Legend universe.
Dubbed Riot Forge, the project seeks to enhance and improve the research and development ambitions of the company. Riot is also working on eight new games projects as it plans to tackle a selection of video game genres among which we can count fighters, shooters, and action-adventure.
In the past, many internet users ironized the fact that the company is called Riot Games, but it only offers a single title in the form of League of Legends. The iconic MOBA was released a decade ago, but it remains a hit among gamers, attracting more than eight million players each month.
Riot Games Launches a new Publishing Lable for Titles Based on League of Legends
Riot Games has decided to branch out in a big way, and a storm of the announcement came two months ago. A redesigned version of League of Legends will arrive on smartphones and consoles as League of Legends: Wild Rift. Teamfight Tactics, a different take on the auto chess genre is already available within the LoL client, and standalone versions will arrive on mobile devices in 2020.
Legends of Runeterra will hit the market in 2020, offering a twist on the popular F2P digital card games category that is spearheaded by Hearthstone and Magic the Gathering: Arena.
A high-ranking Riot Games employee has stated that the company is excited by the interest shown by external developers, who seem to be very interested in working with the League of Legends IP.
Riot Forge projects will deliver expansive gameplay experiences for players who wish to explore the League of Legends universe differently across various platforms. Several titles are already in development, and it is hoped that some announcements could be offered soon. A League of Legends anime and documentary are also in development.
