Executive Producer is lost in an ongoing League of Legends MMO project

The executive producer of the eagerly anticipated League of Legends MMO has announced their departure from Riot Games, creating a new obstacle for development.

The news that Riot Games' League of Legends MMO's executive producer has left the company may worry gamers who are eager to explore the mysterious world of Runeterra. The game that inspired it is still going strong, with the most recent patch for League of Legends bringing significant changes to contentious Champion Yuumi, even as the MMO spin-off faces an uncertain future.

A multiplayer online battle arena, or MOBA, game called League of Legends by Riot Games was first released in 2009 and is largely based on the Warcraft III custom map Defense of the Ancients. League of Legends, which places players in control of one of more than 100 distinctive Champions and places them in isometric 5-v-5 online battles, quickly gathered a devoted following of players attracted by the game's addictive gameplay.Due to the game's enduring success, many spin-off titles have been produced, including the upcoming action role-playing game The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story and the highly regarded Netflix animated series Arcane, which is set in the League of Legends universe. 2020 saw the announcement of a League of Legends MMO, but information on its progress has been hard to come by ever since.

Greg Street, a game developer, recently announced his resignation from Riot Games in a new thread on Twitter. Street was serving as the executive producer and vice president of the League of Legends MMO, which was still under development. Street had previously worked as the lead systems designer on Blizzard's MMO World of Warcraft. In an attempt to reassure players that the League of Legends MMO was "in good hands," Street gave a "combination of personal and professional considerations" as the reason for leaving Riot Games. He also said that he felt comfortable handing over development to new leadership.

Street concluded his thread by saying that he would be playing the mysterious MMO with Riot's fans when it is released, despite no longer being involved in its development. Fans of League of Legends and former coworkers praised Street in their replies to the Twitter thread that announced his departure from Riot Games, thanking him for his contributions to the game and wishing him luck in his future endeavors. One response stated that they were no longer interested in the League of Legends MMO now that Street was leaving, demonstrating just how highly regarded Street was by some gamers.

The League of Legends MMO may never be released, according to Greg Street himself, but based on his parting remarks, it sounds like the game will still be released eventually. But it's unclear what shape it will take now that one of its key designers has left.

The League of Legends MMO is currently in development.
