Riot Games has officially announced that it is recruiting a team to develop a League of Legends MMORPG . The company says it needs a large number of employees, but it needs industry veterans initially.
This is not your fantasy, but reality, we are really working on a League of Legends MMORPG ! We’ll need a fairly large team to bring the world of Runeterra to life.
We are looking for developers with experience working on MMOs, however this is not a requirement for every position. You can show interest and leave a resume. If we have a suitable vacancy, we can contact you.
From the Riot Games official website
The information was confirmed by the vice-president of the company Greg Ghostcrawler Street, who previously worked on World of Warcraft as a lead game designer. The developer noted that it will take a lot of people to create an MMORPG.
We have an unusual approach, so we need a lot of people. Many are interested, and you can express it by sending a resume even for a position that is not yet recruited. We cannot hire 200 people straight away, so please do not sit by your phone after submitting your resume.
Initially, we definitely need industry veterans with MMO experience, but we’ll be looking at people with no experience going forward. We are currently hiring employees to work in Los Angeles, but will subsequently consider expanding outside the United States.
We will be working on this game for years.
In the near future, there is no need to wait for news on the game, since development has started recently. The company does not yet know exactly in which direction the development of ideas will go, but the basis for the game already exists thanks to the well-developed League of Legends lore .
Riot Games has long flirted with the community about MMORPGs in the popular MOBA universe, but it never came to official statements. The players have now received confirmation.
