Riot's co-founders are going back to making new games

Riot's co-founders are going back to making new games”

It was eleven years ago when Marc "Tryndamere" Merrill and Brandon "Ryze" Beck founded Riot Games as a small development house to pursue their dreams. However, after more than a decade spent building and managing a business around a single game, the two are ready to go back to their original passion: actual game design.

Riot Games could be one step closer to releasing their first game in eight years. It seems likely to be a blend of the two, but your guess is as good as ours in this regard.

The Rioters note that the company has grown to 2,500 employees across 20 offices across the globe, and this growth acts as a cushion for widespread support not only for League of Legends, but Riot's other projects as well.

However, now the pair admit that they spend the majority of their time managing the company rather than "creating incredible experiences for players".

"We haven't been on this journey alone of course, and have been lucky to assemble a very capable and driven leadership team of gamers over time who believe in our mission just as much as we do".

"In our new roles we're going back to focusing on what is ultimately the most important thing we do: making great games", reads their official announcement. As that's what they'd prefer to do, and they run the company, they've chose to do just that, and will be joining active development on Riot Games second game, mentioning that they're "looking forward to working with them to finally put the s in Riot Games". Perhaps the founders have finally discovered their next game that will hopefully be as successful as League of Legends has been.

Their absence will be filled by chief operating officer Dylan Jadeja, chief technical officer Scott Gelb, and president Nicolo Laurent.

"We're incredibly excited to jump back into the trenches for this next chapter and look forward to sharing what we're up to along the way".

The developers behind League of Legends announced that they are working on a whole new game, and this time it looks like they're pretty serious about it.
