The past few weeks have seen a variety of huge announcements made by Riot Games. Previously known exclusively for League of Legends, the company is now branching out into a variety of different genres with its new projects. First up is Legends of Runeterra – a digital collectible card game which aims to rival the likes of Hearthstone when it comes to offering a challenging and rewarding free-to-play experience across PC and mobile.
In addition to Runeterra, the studio is also working on a fighting game and a competitive hero shooter, details on which are both incredibly light. We doubt we’ll hear anything further about them at the Worlds 2019 Final, but you never know! Oh, and there’s an animated series in the works alongside a version of League of Legends in the works for consoles and mobile. One thing is for certain – Riot Games is no longer a one game developer.
