— This article will be updated when more news about this project is announced
Riot Games has been making waves across the video game industry as they announced that they are working on a fighting game, according to an interview held at EVO by the tournament’s co-founder, Tom Cannon.
“And, I want to be able to let people in on maybe the worst kept secret in the universe and I can confirm we are working on a fighting game with Riot.”
Cannon’s former studio, Radiant Entertainment, was acquired by Riot Games in 2016. During this time, the former studio was working on a PC fighting game called Rising Thunder. This game was more simplified, allowing it to be more accessible, while also being deep and balanced. It was open to the public, allowing easy accessibility to everyone.
That’s all Riot Games had to share. Many things have been rumored, but the project’s name has not been released nor the mechanics of the core game. Radiant Entertainment has not released anything in relation to the project.
