In a conversation with Variety, Riot Games' co-founder Mac Merrill explained that the studio’s goals moving forward and become more than “the ‘League of Legends’ business.” Merrill says that it’s an “exciting time” and that they are working on many various plans for their second game. “The reality at Riot is that we are exploring lots of different games. We have a whole bunch of RND teams exploring different opportunities that we think would resonate with players,” Merrill said.

Merrill explained that their next project will be worth your time.

“Like with League of Legends we’re not going to try and please everyone or do things even oriented to a mass market. We think of League of Legends as a niche market that’s really focused,” he said. Merrill went on to add, “That’s the only type of game we want to create: games with longevity — that’s worth your time.”

What Riot Games will create next should be interesting. Simply their name carries a lot of weight within the gaming industry and a new project will definitely attract their many fans.
