Riot Games is letting other developers use its characters and worlds to create original League of Legends games. "When they're a little further along, we'll announce the games that they are making". Riot Forge is a game publisher rather than a game developer. Riot didn't explain what developers it would be working with, but it did say that Riot Forge would "focus on developing completable game experiences, while complementing the live service games being developed internally by Riot Games". With Riot Forge, not only will we get new games from Riot itself, but a multitude of devs, each with their own creative style. More Champions are coming to League as we speak, and a ton of games are in the pipeline. The team wants to make sure that each game is "designed with the right platform in mind for the best possible player experience".

The games are created to be "memorable experiences", taking League of Legends fans down different storylines in the game and exploring different sides to everyone's favorite champions. Multiple titles are already in development, according to the company. There is expected to be an reveal of the first game published by Riot Forge at the Game Awards on December 12.

Measles Numbers Were Bad In 2018. This Year, They're Even Worse
CDC researchers estimate that 19.2 million infants worldwide did not receive the first dose of measles vaccine in 2018. The report found that measles cases globally more than doubled in 2018 compared with 2017, and are rising still.

"We are always looking for new ways to bring the World of Runeterra and its champions to new and existing audiences around the world", said Greg Street, vice president of intellectual property and entertainment at Riot Games.
