Gaming News LoL: The Runeterra-Set MMO Has “No Guarantee It’ll Come Out”

The role-playing game set in the world of Runeterra, awaited by many LoL fans and fans of the universe in general, has no guarantee of release, according to its chief producer.


  • “You only know if you know”
  • A vast universe that is being massively expanded

“You only know if you know”

Riot’s Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game, formalized for the first time at the end of 2020, is making headlines again. As for his announcement, it’s always Greg Street communicating about the MMORPG in development at the League of Legends creator’s studios. Greg Street, former Age of Empires game designer and former Lead Systems Designer on World of Warcraft, posted a tweet not reassuring players about the state of the game:

There is no guarantee that the game will be released. We’re optimistic, but you don’t know unless you know. Assuming the game comes out, this will be the third major franchise I’ve worked on and probably the last. And that’s fine with me. This will be a good ending.

In response to these comments, fans are bound to be concerned. A concern always allayed by Greg Street, who points out that “Things are going great, but Riot and player expectations are high“.

A vast universe that is being massively expanded

Project F

For good reason, we can find the ambition to take the entire Runeterra universe (13 regions, 159 champions in League of Legends, etc.) into an MMO on the scale of World of Warcraft daunting. A wish since 2019 and the tenth anniversary of League of Legends: On this occasion, Riot announced the card game Legends of Runeterra, the mobile version of LoL called Wild Rift and other projects. Among them, Project A is now known as Valorant but is not set in the Runeterra universe. Conversely, Project F and Project L, or Hack’n’Slash and Versus Fighting, are also expected.

In addition to the games developed by Riot, three productions have recently served to expand the LoL universe. We naturally think of Arcane, the Netflix series hosted by the French from Fortiche, which was a hit at the “Annie Awards”. There are also the games Ruined King and Hextech Mayhem, two games published by Riot that put champions from League of Legends at the center of their story. Other projects on this theme are also ongoing and expected in 2022: Conv/Rgence features Ekko in a 2D platform game, while Song of Nunu puts Nunu and Willlump in an action/adventure game.

In any case, on the part of Riot, the program is more than loaded to expand the Runeterra universe. A dense program, the first stage of which is due to start in May: it’s about the card game Legends of Runeterra, which is experiencing a revision of its PvE mode with a version 2.0.
