Project L Senior Producer Warns Not to Expect Riot’s Fighting Game in 2021

Riot Games Senior Producer Tom Cannon took to Twitter to set expectations regarding the release of the company’s highly anticipated fighting game, currently using the working title Project L.

“Glad you’re hype for Project L,” Cannon wrote. “The game is on track with many core systems in place, but we still have a ways to go. Pls do not expect a beta (public or private) any time soon, and def. not this year.”

He added that the team plans to provide a developer update towards the end of the year which will provide more information.

Last week, rumors surfaced of local playtests for the game taking place in Southern California near the RIot Games headquarters. This naturally created anticipation and speculation regarding the timeline for a more publicly accessible playtest or an impending release date.

Project L will be Riot Games’ first foray into the fighting game genre. In 2016, the company acquired Radiant Entertainment, founded and led by Cannon and his brother Tony, which produced the fighting game Rising Thunder. The acquisition has led many to speculate that Project L will utilize the gameplay and mechanics of Rising Thunder with League of Legends characters.
