Riot Games is using the ten-year anniversary of League of Legends to announce plans that could change the balance of esports, with new titles in development across the spectrum of genres, along with new content and platform plans. In addition to updates for the core League of Legends game, the company announced that autobattler, Teamfight Tactics, is coming to mobile in Q1 2020 as well as the company’s entry into the card genre via Legends of Runeterra, a free-to-play strategy card game set in the world of LoL. Meanwhile, League of Legends: Wild Rift will serve as a new 5v5 MOBA for mobile and console. Looking ahead, the publisher also revealed Project A, a “stylish, competitive, character-based tactical shooter for PC,” that is set on a beautiful near-future Earth and has a lethal cast of characters, each with unique abilities that create tactical opportunities for their gunplay to shine. More information to be revealed in 2020. Project L will become a fighting game set in the LoL Universe and Project F serves as a temporary name for a very early development MMO project that explores the possibilities of traversing the world of Runeterra with friends. Finally, Riot Games revealed release plans for LoL Esports Manager, offering players a opportunity to create and run their own versions of professional League of Legends teams.
 
On the content side, the company announced Arcane, a League of Legends animated series developed and produced by Riot Games releasing in 2020. Set in utopian Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the story follows the origins of two iconic League champions—and the power that will tear them apart. In addition, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Leslie Iwerks serves up League of Legends Origins, a feature-length documentary that explores the rise of LoL and the community that made LoL one of the most-played PC games in history and fastest growing sports in the world.

DreamHack’s return to Atlanta from Nov. 15-17 at the Georgia World Congress Center will offer competitors nearly $1.5 million in pro esports tournaments in partnership with Monster, Twitch, Chipotle, AT&T and Hi-Rez Studios.

Meanwhile, Player Omega also firmed up Nerd Street Gamers as a partner, and will host a National Championship Series Minor for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at the inaugural event on November 9-10 at the Fairplex in Pomona.

Player Omega will also partner with Nerd Street Gamers across its unannounced 10-stop 2020 tour, with National Championship Series events at each stop. More details about the 2020 events will be shared at a later date. “Nerd Street Gamers has always put players first so they were a must to join us for our first event and to be a tour partner in 2020,” Player Omega CEO Jon Bukosky said. “We want to reach every skill level at Player Omega, and NCS hosting CS:GO and Apex Legends tournaments is a significant offering for competitive players.”

The Malta Football Association locked in a partnership with EA to launch the Malta BOV ePremier League, which will serve as an official qualifier for the EA Sports FIFA 20 Global Series. “EA Sports FIFA is one of the most popular video games worldwide and we’re very pleased to team up with Electronic Arts in this partnership which will lead to the creation of the first Malta BOV ePremier League,” said Dr Matthew Paris, VP of Malta FA. “Our partnership with Electronic Arts will provides some unique opportunities for local esports players and Maltese clubs, putting them on the global EA Sports FIFA map with all the potential benefits this will bring.”

As part of the deal, Five Below and Nerd Street Gamers will build 3,000 square foot Localhost spaces connected to select Five Below stores beginning with a multi-store pilot in 2020. Rollout plans could include 70 or more locations over the next several years. In addition to the Localhosts connected to Five Below stores, Nerd Street Gamers plans to build 50 larger regional and university-based facilities.

TRENDS

 
Last Sunday, Fortnite released an innovative marketing campaign tied to routine server maintenance, effectively shutting down the game to drive demand.

READYUP GAMES OF THE WEEK

 

 
 
INDUSTRY

 
More than 5.5 million gamers watched the Fortnite map enter the void this week before the game returned with a new chapter on Tuesday. The marketing initiative subsequently saw hundreds of thousands of people watching a black hole on their screens waiting for what would happen next. The Fortnite Blackout, according to Streamhatchet, saw an average of 183,000 concurrent viewers across all platforms, led by Twitch’s 109k. Overall, the period drummed up 1.02 million total hours watched before Chapter 2 kicked in.
 
Comcast Spectacor and SK Telecom formally opened the doors to T1 Entertainment & Sports, a new global esports joint venture that was announced in February 2019. Joe Marsh was named CEO, where he will oversee global operations based in Seoul, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. The joint venture got the regulatory greenlight for a portfolio that includes the SK Telecom T1 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) team. In addition, T1 owns and operates teams that compete in titles such as Fortnite, Dota 2, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Super Smash Bros., Hearthstone and Apex Legends. New CEO Marsh most recently served as Chief Business Officer for Comcast’s Spectacor Gaming division and the Philadelphia Fusion Overwatch League squad. John Kim, founder of Akshon Media and former CEO of Meta Gaming in Seoul, will become Chief Operating Officer.
 
Venture capital firm Hiro Capital is open for business, looking to drop $110 million into the esports and games industry, targeting the UK and Europe in particular. The company is reportedly specifically targeting companies in need of Series A and B funding, as opposed to seed finance.
 
Blizzard Entertainment released a statement that China had “no influence” in its decision to ban a Hong Kong video game player last week after he expressed support for Hong Kong protesters on an official Hearthstone channel. However, the company will now reduce the Ng Wai Chung’s suspension from a year to six months in addition to reinstating his $10,000 in winnings from the contest. “If this had been the opposing viewpoint delivered in the same divisive and deliberate way, we would have felt and acted the same,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment.
 
Meanwhile, Riot issued their own statement about its approach to the issue, with Global Head of League of Legends Esports John Needham issuing a statement about Riot’s desire to “keep the broadcasts focused on the game, the sport, and the players.” “We serve fans from many countries and cultures,” he wrote. “We believe this opportunity comes with a responsibility to keep personal views on sensitive issues (political, religious, or otherwise) separate. These topics are often incredibly nuanced, require deep understanding and a willingness to listen, and cannot be fairly represented in the forum our broadcast provides. Therefore, we have reminded our casters and pro players to refrain from discussing these topics on air.”
