For ten years, League of Legends fans have been asking themselves the same question: when will Riot put the 's' in 'Riot Games'? Would it be a role-playing game, derivative of its MOBA title? An MMORPG set in the Runeterra universe?
Not including Teamfight Tactics, that information was finally unveiled at the Evolution Championship Series in Las Vegas. Cannon revealed in an interview with hosts Stephen "Sajam" Lyon and Steve "Tasty Steve" Scott that Riot was indeed working on a new game — a fighting game.
Among Cannon's many roles is co-founder of Radiant Entertainment — who developed well-received online free-to-play fighting game Rising Thunder alongside Capcom alum Seth Killian. The title was closed once Riot Games acquired the studio in 2016.
For the moment, this is the only information we have — no title, release date or information about a first trailer has been released. It remains to be seen whether the game will take place in the League of Legends universe.
As Cannon says, "It's far away, but we have a great team working on it."
Following an unfortunate leak on the eve of EVO 2019, Capcom have officially confirmed the next three characters joining the SFV roster.
