Riot Games founders are 'back in the trenches'

Riot Games founders are 'back in the trenches'

For CEO Brandon "Ryze" Beck and President Marc "Tryndamere" Merrill, the 11-year transition from scrappy independent developer to worldwide gaming giant has undoubtedly been a dream come true.

Eleven years after founding Riot Games, its two founding members are making the jump back to game development.

Riot Games has become famous around the world for its breakout esport and one of the most widely played games of all time, League of Legends.

Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE:MRO) Valuation Review & QI Update
Conestoga Capital Advisors Llc increased Ligand Pharmaceuticals Inc (LGND) stake by 6.96% reported in 2017Q2 SEC filing. The business had revenue of $18.35 billion for the quarter, compared to analyst estimates of $19.98 billion.

The Rioters note that the company has grown to 2,500 employees across 20 offices across the globe, and this growth acts as a cushion for widespread support not only for League of Legends, but Riot's other projects as well.

"Growth also meant that the majority of our time is allocated to managing the company rather than focusing on creating incredible experiences for players, which is what we really love to do", the founders explained.

"We haven't been on this journey alone of course, and have been lucky to assemble a very capable and driven leadership team of gamers over time who believe in our mission just as much as we do", they wrote Wednesday.

Founders Marc "Tryndamere" Merril and Brandon "Ryze" Beck are taking on new roles to be more involved with the creation of games and have strongly hinted it will be a new game they're working on.

Besides League of Legends, Riot Games has only developed and published a tabletop spin-off product called Mechs vs. Minions a year ago.

They'll be trading lanes with CFO Dylan Jadeja, CTO Scott Gelb and president Nicolo Laurent, while the trilane might be unusual in the current corporate meta, Beck and Merrill are keen to point out the trio are "longtime Rioters" who have been "integral" in making the company what it is over the last 10 years. Specifically, they're going to "finally put the "s' in Riot Games".
