Riot is working on something besides League of Legends

    
57
League of Legends developer Riot has been a one-trick pony thus far, but that may change over the next little while according to the Twitter feed of lead designer Ryan “Morello” Scott. Scott, who has also worked at ArenaNet on the original Guild Wars, offered a few vague hints about the company’s next project, including that Riot feels that it’s “important to make something meaningful, not a ‘me too’ game.”

He offered no real details, though he did say that “genre-wise, [it’s] pretty broad.”

DPandaren Yep, that’s my guess. Or an online shooter like LOL Fortress 2.

kalex716 Sorenthaz Madda Muspel pcgneurotic  They don’t.  That’s the point.  They’d rather just keep the lore outside of the game for the most part.

Sorenthaz Damonvile Dystopiq It would be fair to argue anything that becomes a cultural phenomenon, has every bit to do with luck. 
But that doesn’t mean it also doesn’t take a substantial amount of skill, talent, business acumen, and passion to have everything in place to catch that lightening in the bottle either…

Sorenthaz Madda Muspel pcgneurotic So how do they explain why a bunch of seemingly random heroes fight against each other in a respawning arena in perpetuity now?

I thought the old way worked fairly nicely.

ArbsX Sorenthaz Damonvile Dystopiq  Okay so it had no competition then.  Even more of a “right time at the right place” scenario. :p

zenaphex Pretty sure it means not another game that everybody else is making as well.

I suspect they won’t be releasing a shooter where there’s a bunch of characters with abilities like Overwatch, Paladin, Battleborn, and the few others I can’t remember that were all announced recently.

This was mentioned forever ago when they released that fancy cinematic a while back. Or at least it was teased, but word on the street was saying it was a card game.
