Riot Games’ 2v2 tag fighter Project L is now 2XKO, plans playtests this year and launch in 2025


Riot Games would very likely appreciate it if fans would ignore the layoffs that swept over the studio just a month ago and instead look at the shiny new information out of Project L, its 2.5-D 2v2 tag fighting game featuring members of its League of Legends roster. Readers might remember that details for this developing game were pretty slim, save for its free-to-play monetization scheme and a playable demo at last year’s LoL Worlds event in Korea.

It looks as if 2024 is going to be a major year for the fighter, as Riot has shared a wealth of new information, including the game’s official name: 2XKO.

The game’s latest announcement comes with a splashy new trailer as well as some general plans for 2024, including playable demos at major events such as Evo Japan in April, the promise of more information about the game’s progress across its social media channels, and some playtesting for the game at some time near the end of this year, with playtest signups available now. Finally, 2XKO is looking to release on PC, PS5, and Xbox X|S in 2025.

Riot Games is considered a controversial company in the gaming world following a 2018 exposé of the sexual discrimination and harassment inherent in what workers described as its “bro culture.” The scandal brought forth accusations against multiple developers and high-ranking executives and ultimately led to a developer labor dispute and walk-out. Former workers and the state of California, which alleged that Riot was refusing to cooperate with its investigation, lodged lawsuits though Riot settled with one victims’ group at the end of 2021 for over $100M.
