League of Legends Headed for Hollywood

Riot Games has begun work on a League of Legends “cinematic universe,” with plans to bring their world-famous MOBA title to the world of film and television in a similar vein to Marvel’s now-blueprint plan for building a movie franchise.

The publisher is looking to make feature films for not just the League of Legends cinematic universe but for their other titles as well.

Riot is looking for two key roles to kick start their “cinematic universe”. The first is a Global Head of Live Action Film ⁠as well as a Global Head of Live-Action TV.

As the gaming landscape continues to collide with entertainment, Riot Games are building a new team to bring Riot’s IPs to players around the world in new ways, and invite new audiences into the fold. This team will aim to show players and the world that entertainment now starts with games.

Once these two roles are filled, Riot reportedly plans to begin work on “scripted series for the League of Legends cinematic universe, and new franchises.”

Riot Games’ expansion beyond their now-decade old League of Legends title has been explosive since the studio celebrated its 10th anniversary in late 2019.
