Riot Games’ VP of Intellectual Property and Entertainment, Greg Street, tweeted that the company is hiring employees to “Large-scale” games in the League of Legends universe. He later confirmed that it was an MMO.
“My recent job at Riot was to help develop the League universe as we need it! Because the time has come, – wrote he. – My new job is to start a big (some might even say massive) game that many of you and many of the studio staff have asked us to create. P. S. We need people “…
It is an MMO

A spokesman for Riot Games confirmed the news to Windows Central, but did not add any details to it.
Last year, the company announced its ambition to make more games in the League of Legends universe. During the Riot Games 10th Anniversary Broadcast, she presented a number of projects, including Project A (which became the shareware tactical shooter Valorant) and Project F. The latter was described as “A project that explores the possibilities of traveling the world of Runeterra with friends” and looked like an MMO or a multiplayer action RPG a la Diablo. A studio rep could not confirm if Project F is related to the MMO that Street reported.
Notably, Greg Street previously worked for Blizzard Entertainment – he was the lead systems developer for World of Warcraft, but has been with Riot Games since 2014.
