Discover the LoL MMO release date and more today

It’s not a rumour, there really is another MMO from Riot on the way. We’ve got the insider scoop including the potential release date, game features plus a whole lot more - read on below to discover everything that we know so far.

The California-based game studio is best known for its two flagship MMOs League of Legends (LoL) and Valorant. Both of these games are popular with gamers and esports bettors alike, so the thought of a potential new title is something to get excited about!

The key facts:

  • Riot has officially confirmed that it is working on a brand-new MMO
  • An advert to recruit new game developers was put out back in February 2021
  • New game will be based in the LoL MMO universe
  • Game is likely to have RGP systems and stats as confirmed by former exec-producer
  • Riot Games CEO has suggested players may be able to test the game later in 2024
  • Projected Riot MMO release date in 2025 at the earliest
  • Leaks suggesting a SECOND MMO is also on the way
  • Last official update from Riot was on 16 January 2024

Riot MMO “Protect L” will be set in the LoL Universe

Towards the tail end of 2023, Riot confirmed on their website that they are indeed working on a new MMO game. However, we’ve known that something was in the pipeline since early 2021 when an advert was put out for a huge recruitment drive for new developers.

What we know so far, based on information from within Riot and other sources, is that the game will be set in the League universe. This has now been 100% confirmed, but most fans had already guessed that would be the case given that the in-development game has always been referred to as “Project L”.

A fantasy game with RPG system

As it is confirmed that the game will be set in the LoL Universe, it will almost certainly fall into the fantasy genre. Based on a Twitter (X) post from Project L’s former executive producer, Greg Street the game will have “RPG systems like stats, gear, and dungeons.”

Besides, we can only speculate until we get other tidbits of information from our sources or more details released from Riot. So watch this space, as we’ll let you know more as soon as we do.

League of Legends MMO release date


We don’t have an exact League MMO release date that we can give you yet. However, reports suggest that we will be waiting until sometime in 2025 at the very earliest. From a gambling perspective, it probably won’t become a mainstay on LoL betting sites until 2026.

Don’t be too disheartened though, as we have got some good news for you in this regard. In an update released in January 2024, Dylan Jadeja, CEO of Riot Games, stated that Project L has been “making great progress”.

He then suggested that they will be looking for players to test out the new Riot MMO game sometime later this year. Updates are on the way in 2024, and again, we’ll be among the first to let you know here at Strafe.

But wait, there’s more - Here’s what we know about “Project T”

Everything that is known about “Project T” is largely speculative, and there has been some conflicting information. Supposed “leaks” have been released through Reddit, Discord and in YouTube videos but nothing solid has yet been confirmed by Riot themselves.

There are two main theories about what “Project T” will entail. The main theory being peddled is that it will be set in the Valorant Universe. However, others feel if that were to be the case, it would’ve been named “Project V instead.

The other theory - which is also pretty exciting - is that it will be a direct competitor to Destiny, the Flagship FFP by Bungie. If so, it will undoubtedly feature on most esports betting apps soon after its release.

“Project T” Riot MMO release date

Regarding the “Project T” potential release date, we have even less to go on than we do with “Project L”. The only thing that we can assume is that it will be later than “Project L” due to it being in a much earlier stage of development.

Unfortunately, we think you’ll more than likely be waiting until 2026 or 2027 

Stay tuned for updates on these TWO Riot MMOs

In conclusion, “Project L” is the one that we’re already feeling pretty excited about. While we definitely won’t be seeing the first Riot MMO in its full glory until sometime in 2025 at the earliest, the potential for player tests later this year is mouthwatering.

We’re expecting plenty of Project L updates in the coming months, and possibly even some game footage by the end of the year. As far as “Project T” goes, there is so much speculation, but it all looks pretty exciting.

Our hope is that sometime in 2024 we will at least have some official information about Project T from Riot. In the meantime, stay tuned here at Strafe for esports updates, news and leaks.
