Riot Games acquires Radiant Entertainment

13 posts in this topic

For now, the acquisition is one of the biggest surprises of the year. Riot is one of the biggest studios in the world in terms of personnel, but it has made no such acquisitions during its 10-year history. Riot has hinted that it's working on a game other than League of Legends, but it's unclear whether this acquisition feeds into that unannounced project or will represent something completely new.

I'm pretty surprised at this too and wonder what it could be. Actually seeing another game from them makes me pretty excited and I'm really wondering what genre of game it could be.

 

When asked about what genre they are looking into:

Another MOBA 4Head

Nah I doubt it. LoL is just too succesful for them so I doubt they give a shit about another MOBA.

Really no way to know where this will go, Riot has been pretty one-note up to this point.

I am with Maghorn on this one. But perhaps a RTS? would be awesome! :D

I feel like it's going to be a Path of Exile / Diablo style game. That, or a card game lol.

Ooh, didn't think of that. That's also quite possible.

 

EDIT: Could be that Riot will be supporting that game Radiant made, Rising Thunder.

As if conquering the moba genre wasn't enough, now they want the fgc to bow down before them. Then again, this could be big. The highest amount someone have won in a fighting game tournament was over 100k and that only happened once. Riot throwing in their 2 cents could probably bring in more people and a hell of a lot more cash.

Congrats? I suppose?

They probably won't be making another moba since that will just cannibalize their own game. Fighting game is too niche and they already halted development on a working alpha title. So that minecraft looking thing is probably what they are going with.

The fighting game wasn't Riot. It was actually being developed by another studio, I think it was like a fan project. I'm not sure. It had League of Legends champions in it.
