Ever since Riot Games created other games, which were derived from League of Legends, such as LoR and Wild Rift, they keep trying to make them come out of its shadow. One way to do it, is exclusive content.
Riot Games recently got a new Head of League Studio, Andrei Van Roon, who has been making come waves regarding their plans as to where League of Legends and its universe are going forwards in the future.
One of the things he has commented on recently is the trend of exclusive content for Riot-made games, derived from League of Legends. Which is all of them aside from Valorant.
“A few years down the road, once we’ve got everyone’s favorite champions over and so on, but then we’ll want to explore — what does a Wild Rift-unique champion look like?”, said Van Roon in an interview.
the most recent example of content exclusive to Wild Rift would be the Star Guardian event which focused on a different storyline, than the one we had in PC League of Legends.
Quite a few players have even complained that the Rakan and Xayah storyline was far better, than the failed Star Guardian event. So does this mean that Riot are leaving League of Legends to slowly rust away, while they focus on other projects?
Likely not! It just means that League of Legends will, as the other games catch up to its long years of existence, not have as much of a dominant spot in the Riot Games' repertoire of games.
As far as we are concerned, as long as League of Legends functions and Riot don't give up on it completely, the game will live on due to the phenomenon it has become.
Besides, it would be interesting to see what a champion designed for mobile gaming would look like, compared to the rest which were ported to mobile from PC.
