Riot Games is letting other developers use its characters and worlds to create original League of Legends games.
Riot Games has started a new publishing label. Dubbed Riot Forge, the new venture will publish League of Legends games developed by third-party teams.
Riot wants these games to be “completable,” so expect story and narrative-driven games to follow. On the label's official site, Riot says it's already been working with developers on a number of these games, but wouldn't give names or dates.
Geoff Keighley, however, did confirm that the first game to come from that label will be announced at The Game Awards next week, where we expect around ten new game announcements overall.
