League of Legends developer Riot Games has announced a new publishing group to work with third-party developers to make "never seen before games that expand on the League of Legends (LoL) Universe".
"We are humbled by our partner developers who are so passionate to work on games set in the LoL IP, which offers limitless potential with its expansive world and deep champion pool," said Leanne Loombe, Head of Riot Forge. "We are sincerely committed to our developers' long term success and together we aim to deliver great experiences for players of all types."
Riot Forge's focus is on making "completable game experiences" across various platforms, and these will run alongside the live service games. The third-party developers will be supported by Riot to create these titles too, and this is the latest in a long line of new experiences Riot is testing out, including a new shooter.
"We are always looking for new ways to bring the World of Runeterra and its champions to new and existing audiences around the world," said Greg Street, VP of IP and Entertainment at Riot Games. "There are so many talented game studios around the world that have exceptional experience and craft skills in all areas of game development, and we are really excited to work together to bring the LoL IP to new game experiences."
