Game news LoL: the MMO set in Runeterra has “no guarantee of coming out”
Expected by many LoL fans and more generally fans of the universe, the role-playing game in the world of Runeterra has no guarantee of release according to the words of its chief producer.
- “You only know it when you know it”
- A massive universe being massively expanded
“You only know it when you know it”
For the first time formalized at the end of 2020, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game from Riot is once again making headlines. As for his announcement, it is always Greg Street who communicates around the MMORPG in development in the studios of the creator of League of Legends. Greg Street, former game designer on Age of Empires and former lead system designer on World of Warcraft, posted a tweet that did not reassure players about the state of the game:
There is no guarantee this game will ship. We are optimistic, but you just never know until it does. However assuming it does, this will be the fourth major franchise I have worked on (AoE, WoW, LoL), and likely the last. And I am very okay with that. It will be a good final act.

There is no guarantee that the game will be released. We are optimistic, but you only know it when you know it. Assuming the game comes out, this will be the third major franchise I’ve worked on, and probably the last. And that’s fine with me. It will be a good conclusion.
In response to these remarks, the fans are necessarily worried. A concern always tempered by Greg Street, who indicates that “things are going great, but Riot and player expectations are high“.
A massive universe being massively expanded
For good reason, we can estimate that the ambition to transfer the entire universe of Runeterra (13 regions, 159 champions in League of Legends, etc.) into an MMO on the scale of a World of Warcraft is frightening. . A desire displayed since 2019 and the tenth anniversary of League of Legends: on this occasion, Riot announced the Legends of Runeterra card game, the mobile version of LoL called Wild Rift as well as other projects. Among them, Project A is known today as Valorant but is not set in the Runeterra universe. Conversely, Project F and Project L, respectively hack’n’slash and versus fighting, are also expected.
In addition to the games developed by the hand of Riot, three productions have recently served to extend the universe of LoL. We obviously think of Arcane, the Netflix series hosted by the French from Fortiche, which was a hit at the ”Annie Awards”. There are also the Ruined King and Hextech Mayhem games, two games published by Riot that put champions from League of Legends at the heart of their story. On this subject, other projects are also underway and expected for 2022: Conv/Rgence features Ekko in a 2D platform game, while Song of Nunu places Nunu and Willump in an action/adventure game.
In any case, the program is more than loaded on the Riot side to expand the universe of Runeterra. A dense schedule, the first stage of which should begin in May: it is on the side of the card game Legends of Runeterra which sees an overhaul of its PvE mode with a version 2.0.
