Following the enormous growth in this area of the gaming business, Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends, has disclosed that they will create their own massively multiplayer online game (MMO).

What is the Release Date for League of Legends MMO?

The MMO’s release date has not yet been specified by Riot Games. They are still hiring, though, which may indicate that they are still in the early stages of growth, according to their website.

With this information, we may anticipate the MMO’s release sometime between late 2023 and mid-2024 for what may end up being the biggest MMO ever thanks to League of Legends’ enormous fan base and substantial support from the Chinese corporation Tencent.

After a deal was reached to bring Riot Games to the subscription service, it’s possible that when it does release, it will be available on Xbox Game Pass.

Is the Riot MMO Cancelled?

In a recent tweet, Greg Street, VP & EP of the Upcoming MMO Title, claimed that “there is no certainty that the game will ship.” This has people concerned about the launching of the Runeterra-themed MMORPG.

Is the MMORPG dead? No, it is not, but it is still in its early stages, which means it could falter. We do believe Riot has a grip on things, and if we look at past long-term initiatives, like as Arcane, we know it will become a reality even if there are hiccups along the way.

Street also stated in subsequent tweets that his initial post was taken out of context and that work for the MMORPG was “doing nicely.” So, gentlemen, don’t be concerned about the MMO.

Riot’s MMO Classes

Every MMO needs classes to be a good game, and if we look at other MMOs like WoW or FFXIV, you can generally start with a nice range of classes.

If we look at what is already in League of Legends, then we can understand what precisely might be featured in this MMO, where players will be spoiled for choice when it comes to classes.

Riot MMO Classes

These are some of the current Classes in League of Legends:

Tank Class

  • Warden
  • Vanguard

Healer/Support Class

  • Catcher
  • Enchanter

DPS Class

  • Juggernaut
  • Artillery
  • Burst
  • Marksman
  • Assassin
  • Diver
  • Battlemage
  • Skirmisher

Will the Riot’s LoL MMO be Free To Play?

Riot Games’ titles have always been free to play. As a result, we’ll wager that this MMORPG will also be free to play with in-game purchases. Because this is branded the League of Legends MMO, many of the features found in LoL should be included in the MMO.

Maintenance of a game of this size will be difficult and costly, but it will most likely be a free game, as has been the case with every other Riot Games product thus far, but none of this has been verified. Lost Ark is also a free-to-play MMO, but we may expect a similar model to be applied in this MMO, with in-game purchases for skins and other cosmetics.

Who are the developer’s for Riot’s LoL MMO

Greg Street, as previously stated, is in charge of the MMO. Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, the lead quest designer for The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077, has also joined the project, which can only indicate that the game will have some very intriguing quests.

For everybody who has grumbled about champion balance over the years, Mark Yetter, former League of Legends Lead Gameplay Designer, will join the MMO team as Game Director in 2021.
