League of Legends studio, Riot Games, is expanding. The company announced today that it has acquired Radiant Entertainment — making the MOBA developer the proud owner of the survival game Stonehearth and a currently unrevealed game.

A post on the Radiant Entertainment site filled fans in on the plans for its current games, stating that production on Stonehearth will go forward as planned while the free-to-play fighting game Rising Thunder will permanently be closing on March 18th. The Rising Thunder team is preparing to begin work on the unannounced game.

Riot hasn’t gone into detail on what plans they have for Radiant and its games, however players will be able to keep track of Stonehearth’s progress via Twitch streams and blog posts on the game’s site.

      Hey Ron,
      I was looking forward to Rising Thunder, had been playing since the early alpha. That being said the reason they are probably shutting down Rising Thunder is because they plan to use the assets of the game in an upcoming game.

      Says you, I don’t like either of those game, but I’m not right, I just have an opinion. If the characters in Rising Thunder weren’t all robots, then I would have been more interested.
