Isn’t MMORPG but Fighting Game?
After allowing gamers to speculate for more than a year, Riot Games representatives finally revealed more information about their new game project.
Recently, on the opening day of the eSports event for Fighting Games – Evolution Championship Series 2019 (EVO), the gaming community witnessed the presence of a guest – Tom Cannon – One Important members of Riot Games.
The strange thing here is because the EVO is an event dedicated to antagonistic Esports disciplines, and is not related to the League of Legends. So why did Tom Cannon appear here? The answer was given shortly thereafter. In a live broadcast interview, Tom Cannon confirmed with EVO commentators about why a Riot character was present at the event:
“I confirm that we (Riot Games) are developing a fighting game project.”
So Riot Games staff participated in EVO as a “market exploration” move with the aim of developing a new game project that they had announced more than a year ago. Information about Riot Games developing a new game product is no longer surprising.
For more than a year, Riot employees were also encouraged to disclose the new game project by script: Occasionally revealing some information related to the new game.
But all the data related to Riot’s next game project is very few and does not help players get the necessary view of this game. However, with confirmation from Tom Cannon, we have got another important information about this project: That is the League of Legends brothers will be in the Fighting Game category.
In November 2018, Riot Games suddenly registered a series of trademarks under the name: Legends of Runeterra. The areas in which Riot Games registers copyright with such a wide name are: typically the telecommunications industry, toys and sports, advertising and business, education – entertainment, computers and technology. …
Runeterra is a vast area of land consisting of countries and territories that the generals come from. Combined with the revelations from Tom Cannon, Legends of Runettera will be Riot Games’ latest fighting game.
And this brings a new hypothesis, which is that this fighting game will own the character system from the League of Legends Universe – a very desirable information for gamers worldwide.
Contrary to many predictions about MMORPG product, Riot Games probably still wants to dig deeper into the field of Esports, with the creation of a fighting game and developing it.
