LoL: Riot Games' animated series Arcane delayed to 2021

Announced during the tenth anniversary of League of Legends, the production of Riot Games' first-ever animated series was crippled by the COVID-19 pandemic.

That's another sad news for the League of Legends community, as "Arcane" won't be released this year as it was initially planned. Producing an animated series during a global pandemic is certainly not an easy task, and Riot Games decided to push forward the well-being of their staff.

"Everyone here at Riot is bummed," said Head of Creative Development Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street — and we certainly feel the same. Alongside Legends of Runeterra and Valorant, Arcane was one of the biggest announcements made during the League of Legends tenth anniversary, and a lot of fans were eager to watch it.

Especially after seeing its gorgeous trailer.

Sadly, Riot Games' plans changed, and they're now hoping to release Arcane in 2021.
