After a Twitter leak in December, Riot Game officially announced its new League of Legends MMORPG. However, they are doing it in a strange way. Riot Games has a new website to hire a multitude of different developers to help them tackle this huge task of creating an MMORPG.

While they don’t have specific roles yet, they are looking for developers with MMO experience. Here are the different areas they are looking for.
- Game engineering
- Game design
- UX design
- Art of the game (all sup disciplines)
- Game production
As stated before, this is the first time that Riot Games as a company has officially confirmed the MMORPG. This is certainly a big deal, as League of Legends fans have loved it for quite some time.
Now that the League of Legends MMORPG is confirmed, it will be interesting to see what details will come out about what will likely be a lengthy development process. Considering what Riot Games is hiring for, it seems unlikely that this new game will arrive anytime soon. Since MMORPGs can take up to a decade to make, fans should expect absolutely nothing for a while.
With that being said, knowing Riot Games, they are always working on things long before it is announced. While they’re not great at containing some leaks, even Ghostcrawler’s Twitter leak feels completely intentional. They may be starting to increase production, but they already have the history and ideas in place.
Either way, this is a game that many fans have dreamed of for quite some time. The world of League of Legends is very vast and many thought that it could be an MMORPG in the future. It’s safe to say that the expectations for the finished product will likely be quite high. This is not so much from the fans but from what Riot Games establishes in themselves.
Speaking of which, they have come out after 10 years of making League of Legends and they have really expanded. Riot Games now has a multitude of different games and more on the way. The excitement for the League MMORPG will be great and it is hoped that fans will get a better image in the years to come.
