Official announcement: Riot Games has begun working on the MMO (Online Multiplayer) game.
Greg Street, aka Ghostcrawler, Vice President of IP and Entertainment at Riot Games, posted on Twitter confirming that Riot is currently recruiting for the project:
Greg was previously System Design Team Leader for World of Warcraft with Blizzard Entertainment, so he clearly understands everything in the MMO space.
He joined Riot in early 2014 as Principal Game Designer and has worked in a variety of roles up to his present position in October 2019. He currently oversees intellectual property rights. of League of Legends, its third-party developer program is Riot Forge and its upcoming animated release, Arcane.
Riot recently announced that the upcoming Forge Ruined King: A League of Legends Story title will launch in Q1 2021.
The community reacted with excitement to Greg’s post and the news that an MMO from Riot Games is coming, including views from WoW Asmongold’s popular streamer.
Riot has previously invited several Hearthstone content creators to help drive the launch of the card game, Legends of Runeterra, last year.
So it’s likely that more WoW content creators and players will look forward to this game.
With WoW originally released in 2004, the technology of course has improved a lot since then. But you don’t need the fastest internet connection to play, a download speed of around 20Mbs is enough for uninterrupted gaming.
We can expect a similar request from the MMO release of Riot games. If your broadband is not fast enough, you can follow this guide to switch broadband providers.
While Riot hasn’t explicitly stated this is a League of Legends MMO, of course League of Legends is Riot’s primary IP, so it’s likely to be a LoL MMO.
We will keep you updated with other MMO news in the future.
