Aside from the inexplicably long-running Resident Evil series, movies about video games tend to be a bit of a mixed bag. Michael Fassbender couldn't save Assassin's Creed from being a dud, and the Alicia Vikander Tomb Raider reboot is being treated with no small amount of apprehension either. All that hasn't stopped Riot Games, the creators of the hugely popular MOBA League of Legends from saying they're not opposed to a big-screen adaption of their game.

League of Legends movie: Details on a film adaptation are scarce

To be fair, this isn't exactly a new development on Riot's part. Daniel Ahmad tweeted a little under a year ago that Riot was interested in a League of Legends movie.

What's unusual about this is the reference to the Warcraft movie, which was a critical and box-office disaster in the U.S.A., grossing just over $24 million in its opening weekend in spite of breaking records abroad — specifically in China. So even if Riot and Tencent, who owns a majority stake in the game developer do go forward with a League of Legends movie, the shape it takes at this point is really anyone's guess.

Have you ever gone to the cinema hoping to see a League of Legends movie trailer? League of Legends is so much more than just a video game. With a huge online community of over 100 million players and plenty of trivia and background lore, League of Legends is an entire universe. This brings the question. HBO's Ballers is getting a League of Legends storyline for its fifth and final season. Here’s a crossover that nobody saw coming. Ballers is a show on HBO about retired NFL football player-turned money manager Spencer Strasmore (played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and how he manages his retirement.

Riot developers have even said as much when asked about the plans to bring League of Legends to other media. According to PvP Live, Brandon Beck — Riot's cofounder — expressed similar apprehension about making that jump, saying 'the track record on video game movies is a humbling lesson.' Ultimately, he seemed interested in the idea, assuming they could find a way to stay true to what people loved about the game:

What's most important to us is that any extension of League into other mediums feels authentic to the source and respectful of the passion we all share for the game and its universe. It's a big challenge, but we think we can get there if we invest the time in learning how to do it right.

Only time will tell what Riot and Tencent choose to do with the rights to League of Legends, but given World of Warcraft's success overseas, chances are good this won't be the last we hear of it.

Riot casts doubt on two film and TV content vacancies. From there there is only one step to say that a League of Legends movie is being prepared for the cinema.

Since its tenth anniversary, Riot Games has thought big and maximally developed the universe of its flagship game League of Legends. Between Teamfight Tactics, Valorant or League of Legends: Wild Rift, the studio has released many games, and many are yet to come. But outside of video games, too, Riot had decided to venture and announce it the arcane cartoon series
