It looks like not even a single week can go by without talking about Riot Games. Not really sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. In this week’s news, the long awaited League of Legends MMO that fans have been desperately waiting for might not come to fruition. The head dev on the title, Greg Street, said in a tweet that: “There is no guarantee this game will ship. We are optimistic, but you just never know until it does.” The MMO was first announced back in December of 2020. Then, two years later, we finally get some news…and it’s that the MMO might not be happening at all. Say what?
If Riot wants to get its foot into the MMO market, they need to work hard to ship this game. League’s extensive lore and world building that extended into Runeterra–which is League's universe–would fit perfectly in the realm of an MMO. Not to mention that the fandom has only grown ever since Arcane released on Netflix back in November.
Still, while the game is not guaranteed, that does not mean the project has been canceled. Instead, this upfront, honest comment by Street has lifted the veil of uncertainty that was hanging around the title since 2020.
The MMO title’s game director, Mark Yetter, had also previously apologized to fans for the lack of updates regarding the game. “It’s a long road for the MMO project,” he said. “We’re trying to do it right so we build something worthy of expectations. Sorry you aren’t getting a ton of updates from us quite yet, but we’re hard at work making strides every day.”
While the news is disappointing for sure, and most certainly not the update everyone was hoping for, at least the game–as of now–is still in development. If you want to read the full article check out Dot Esports site.
