Riot has officially confirmed that it is working on an MMORPG. Less than a year after the release of Valorant, Riot Games published a recruitment page inviting game developers to apply for the unnamed MMORPG. 

In a February 22, 2021 post titled "We're Making an MMO", Riot revealed that the MMORPG would be based in the League universe and that the developer was just preparing for the journey. The studio announced that it is looking for developers with experience in "gameplay development", "UX design", and "game art" across "all disciplines".

MMORPG Riot will be in a fantasy style, given that the game is set in the LoL universe. It also looks like the game will utilize a third-person camera system. Riot is particularly interested in a combat game developer with experience in both PvE and PvP games, suggesting that the MMORPG will allow players to fight each other or cooperate against AI enemies.

Greg Street, the game's former executive producer, also told X that Riot's MMORPG "will almost certainly have RPG systems like stats, gear, dungeons". 

When the game will be released is unknown. It could take several years, but the Riot MMO speculated that the game could be released in 2025 or 2026.
