And while the two biggest projects of the lot are still in development, here is Greg Street, vice president of Riot and executive producer on the game, making an announcement that the most impatient were not necessarily expecting.

There is no guarantee this game will ship. We are optimistic, but you just never know until it does. However assuming it does, this will be the fourth major franchise I have worked on (AoE, WoW, LoL), and likely the last. And I am very okay with that. It will be a good final act.

There is no guarantee that this game will ever be released. We’re optimistic, but you never know until it’s launched. However, assuming it does, this will be the fourth major franchise I’ve worked on (AoE, WoW, LoL), and probably the last. And that suits me perfectly. It will be a good last act.

Street was then questioned by a multitude of Internet users in a hurry to find out more. Through several answers, he explains in particular that if the game never comes out, it is because it has not managed to respect the standards of Riot Games: If it’s not good. If we think he will disappoint players. We don’t want to be a game that’s popular for two weeks and then disappears.” A guarantee of quality that could well be a double-edged sword. Nevertheless, it is better to see that Riot Games wants to emphasize the quality of its projects, even if it means disappointing part of its community.

Despite everything, after the recent setbacks of games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Battlefield 2042, it’s a safe bet that most people would rather see a game postponed, or even cancelled, than go out in an unplayable state. Anyway, this MMO League of Legends is not ready for release and still has a few years of development ahead of it. And who knows, maybe Riot will manage to release a movie before an MMO, many fans have been asking for a feature film for years.
