League of Legends is one of the most popular competitive MOBA and a reference in the world of eSports. Being one of the precursors in the genre has also made developer Riot Games one of the most successful studios in the video games scene and it seems that they are planning to expand their field of influence. On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of League of Legends, Riot has announced that it’s working on a few titles that cover a variety of genres that includes fighting, first-person shooting or even card games.
Legends of Runeterra is Riot’s attempt to create a League of Legends digital card game to compete in a genre that is already packed with games like The Elder Scrolls Legends, Hearthstone, Magic The Gathering Arena or GWENT which are some of the most popular right now. Considering what happened with Valve’s Artifact not too long ago it could be a risky move because it’s rather difficult to innovate in this genre, but taking advantage of the huge popularity of League of Legends might produce a good start for the new game. No release date has been revealed so far, but it should come at some point next year.
Even though it doesn’t even have an official name yet, the game known as Project L is going to be Riot’s take on fighting games. It’s supposed to be a game that will let you use your favorite League of Legends champions to fight against each other.

In the same way, Project A is going to be Riot’s future first-person character-based tactical shooter. It will not be based on the League of Legends universe and very little information about it has been revealed other than it will be focused on competitive multiplayer modes. It could be similar to Overwatch but until we know a little more about its mechanics we are not sure of what to expect.
Other than that, yesterday’s livestream also served to announce the upcoming release of fifty new units for Teamfight Tactics with set 2 and also the launch of League of Legends for mobile devices and consoles very soon.
