Riot Games looking to expand League of Legends universe under Riot Forge

In addition to the games the company is developing internally, it's also partnering with third-party studios to develop single-player, narrative-focused games set in the League of Legends world.

League of Legends studio Riot Games recently announced plans to move beyond the mega-MOBA League of Legends with a pile of new games including a fighting game, an FPS, a card game, and even a management sim.

The @LeagueofLegends Universe is filled with stories to be told. Essentially, they will coordinate the Riot Games staff to guide and assist external developers to stay in line with the already established League Lore. Riot Forge is a game publisher rather than a game developer.

We're excited to welcome @riotgames to #TheGameAwards for the first time! With Riot Forge, not only will we get new games from Riot itself, but a multitude of devs, each with their own creative style. The team wants to make sure that each game is "designed with the right platform in mind for the best possible player experience".

Riot Forge wasn't teased at the League 10 anniversary event, which has made the announcement all the more surprising.

Multiple games are currently in development, but details of those ventures have been kept under wraps for now.

The publishing label will be making its live debut at The Game Awards next week on Thursday, Dec. 12, where it'll reveal a new video game.
