Ruined King: A League of Legends Story delayed

The upcoming narrative tale has been pushed back, with Riot Forge citing the challenges of 2020 as the primary reason.

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story delayed

A turn-based RPG set in Runeterra, the world of League of Legends, Ruined King was originally slated for 'easly 2021'. However, the game will now be pushed back to an unspecified date later in the year. 

Unveiled as the first time the League of Legends franchise will hit console (before a console version of Wild Rift), Ruined King is being developed by legendary artist Joe Madureira and Airship Syndicate, the team behind Battle Chasers: Nightwar and Darksiders Genesis.

The full statement can be found below.

Other titles to come that put the 's' in Riot Games include an as-yet untitled fighting game, LoL Esports Manager, and an action-RPG also yet to be revealed.

These come hot on the heels of VALORANT, a team-based shooter, auto-battler Teamfight Tacticscard game Legends of Runeterra, and the latest release, an official mobile port of their Riot's flagship game, Wild Rift.
