It is sad that one of the few news that we get from the project is that the Producer of League of Legends MMO leaves Riot. This is Greg Street, an expert in this type of project. Of course, one of the most important personalities in charge of this MMO at Riot was an ex-Blizzard worker, with his experience gained from being involved in the most famous MMO of all time.
The reasons for his resignation are delicate and personal, and in his farewell statement there is not a hint of rancor or anger towards Riot. This indicates that there was no kind of quarrel over the course of development, and confirms that the creative does not retire on bad terms. The only thing left to do is fill his position with someone as capable as him, surely there is a free ex-Blizzard worker out there.
The producer of the League of Legends MMO leaves Riot, and the president of Riot Games does not take long to speak out
Greg Street worked from the 2008 to 2013 within Blizzard, there his work in World of Warcraft was substantial. He led the design team, overseeing the design of the classes, professions, user interface, and more. When he left Blizzard, it didn’t take long for him to join Riot to support different branches around League of Legends.
Hey internet. Thanks for all the support over the past few months while I was afk
I am back now with some big news to share: I have decided to step down from my role at Riot Games

Since 2020, the project in which he would hold an extremely important task became known. This would be the League of Legends MMO, for which they would be looking for new employees with some expertise in the genre. With Greg Street retired, the search for new talent is more in force than ever, and that’s what he takes care of himself. President of Riot GamesMarc Merrill.
It seems that he does not want to show weakness by losing an important worker, so, in parallel, Marc Merrill clarifies the project is going very well. Of course, this is a long-winded race, and they are barely covering the first sections, at a safe pace. So don’t expect MMO news any time soon, unless those news are about layoffs or other issues.
