The League of Legends universe is getting even bigger. Not content with expanding the game in-house, Riot has created a new publishing group specifically designed to work with third-party developers who want to create League spin-offs.
In an embargoed press release, Riot explained that Riot Forge would be “working with proven third party developers to create never seen before games that expand on the League of Legends universe”. Riot didn’t explain what developers it would be working with, but it did say that Riot Forge would “focus on developing completable game experiences, while complementing the live service games being developed internally by Riot Games”.
In other words, Riot Forge games won’t be concentrating on other games as a service-style offerings. Curiously, it’s also not going to focus on the world of board games or tabletop, according to a quote given to PC World Australia.

VentureBeat reported Thursday that the Los Angeles-based publisher will be partnering with reputed third-party developers to design exciting new League of Legends games under its new publishing label, Riot Forge. The first of its kind at Riot, Riot Forge aims to complement Riot Games’ existing research and development program, and “create bespoke completable games” that expand its highly popular League of Legends universe.
This is hot on the heels of the company’s announcement to release eight big games, films and animated series in 2020. It’s pretty exciting stuff considering that Riot hasn’t released any new major projects, solely focusing on its LoL game for the better part of a decade.
