If you thought the start of the Diablo Immortal technical alpha was going to be the biggest news on Thursday, think again. Greg Street put the kibosh on that with a tweet announcing a new position at Riot that suggested a League of Legends MMO was in the works. Just in case there was any doubt, he confirmed that’s what he meant in a follow-up tweet. This of course is huge news, even if we don’t know a single other detail about a potential League of Legends MMO. And we don’t; oddly enough this tidbit dropped without any accompanying official announcements by Riot Games — no marketing, no interviews, no teasing image, nothing.
An MMO is the sixth League-related product announced in the past 14 months; this year has already brought us the digital card battling game Legends of Runeterra and the mobile auto-battler Teamfight Tactics. 2021 is expecting to see Wild Rift, a translation of League to mobile and console, and Ruined King, an RPG set in the Bilgewater section of Runeterra. Also announced is “Project L,” a fighting game utilizing the League characters, but there has been no other information released on it. Riot Games is apparently going all-in on a shared for the League IP (I haven’t even mentioned the announced animated series), and it’ll be interesting to see whether it’s successful like the Marvel Cinematic Universe or whether it struggles like DC’s attempt to create their own shared universe.
Mar 25, 2021 League Of Legends MMO Details Confirmed By Riot Games Website Riot Games is actively hiring for positions related to the upcoming League of Legends MMO. By Jon Bitner Published Mar 25, 2021 News of a League of Legends MMO was first revealed late last year, but Riot Games has been quiet in the following months. While Street did not provide specifics, the MMO will take place in the world of Runeterra, the same universe that League of Legends and other Riot Games titles take place in. Street’s Twitter bio. A LoL MMO doesn't interest me. But a LoL RPG would.Come play MMO-C mafia with us! / Steam / MyAnimeList -Reply With Quote. 2020-12-18, 04:07 AM #10. The League of Legends MMO, which may not go by the name “World of Runeterra,” is only one of a number of new spinoff projects coming from Riot. The company is also making a fighting game called. Riot Games is known for its popular games like 'League of Legends' It is now working on a new MMORPG set in the 'LoL' universe; The company is currently hiring people for the project.
A League of their own
Since it’s going to be League of Legends-based, the temptation is to assume it’ll take place on Runeterra with all the magic and explosive elements that entails. Whether that means a majority of the continent like in Legends of Runeterra, or restricted to a smaller location like in Ruined King remains to be seen. If the latter, I would expect it to expand over time into other known areas like Elder Scrolls Online has done.
There’s another possibility though: PROJECT. An event that took place in the future where familiar characters were given cybernetic enhancements and, of course, skins to match, PROJECT offers an alternative to a Runeterra setting while staying in the League of Legends universe. It also simplifies design, as it could provide a smaller number of classes to emulate in-game than a Runeterra-based setting would. Finally, a PROJECT-based setting is a radically different niche from that currently fought over by the biggest games in the MMO industry.
The future, of course, is when we’ll see a League of Legends MMO released. While 2023 isn’t completely out of the question, most modern MMOs take four or more full years of development before launching, and I don’t expect a different timeframe for Riot. It’ll definitely be interesting to see it unfold, let’s just hope that nothing causes it to get jinxed.

We’ve all been asking for it for years. Riot Games has decided they would grant our wish and create a League of Legends MMO based in Runeterra, the mythical land they’ve built up over the years in deep, exciting lore.
Riot Games is most famous for its wildly successful League of Legends. League took the gaming community by storm over eight years ago. The MOBA has become the most played game on the planet. Not only did League of Legends become immensely popular, but the game has also become the world’s most-played eSport.
Although League of Legends is a super successful game, Riot Games has recently started expanding its influence in the gaming world. They’ve recently published Valorant, a first-person ability shooter. They’ve also created Teamfight Tactics, a new digital card game and they recently revealed an upcoming fighting game. That’s not all, though. They’re now working on an action-RPG and a MMO.
Greg Street, an employee at Riot has been tasked with expanding the League of Legends universe with an exicting, “massive” project. As a huge fan of League of Legends and MMOs, I would welcome a League-based MMO with open arms. Knowing that Riot has been known to produce high-quality content, this annoucement has quickly made it the top of my list for games I can’t wait to play.
Although I’m not super knowledgable about the lore of Runeterra, I know there are many, many hyper passionate fans that can’t wait to see the world brought to life. When a new champion is released in League of Legends, they have a backstory that relates to their role in the world of Runeterra. Over the years, the League of Legends’ story has been fleshed out to become more complete and interesting. I can’t think of a better way to incorporate what they’ve built than to tie it all together with a League of Legends MMO.
Greg Street will be spearheading this project. He has experience as a lead systems designer for World of Warcraft, so it’s safe to say he’s no noob to MMOs. With Greg and his talented team at Riot tackling this project, we know the game will have a great foundation. As you can imagine, there will be no shortage of money to create the game. Riot Games is huge and its reputation is not something they want to jeopardize.
There were rumors about a League of Legends MMO that got shut down not too long ago. Many of us were disappointed by the news, but it appears Riot Games has had a shift of heart. Of course, this project is probably in the early stages of development. We’re all hoping for a teaser trailer sometime soon.
