Under Riot Forge, the studio is essentially conscripting third-party teams to help make new League of Legends games. They definitely need all the help they can get. Riot currently has a metric ton of new games in the works, including a hero shooter FPS game (yes, really), a Diablo-like ARPG, a mobile version of League of Legends, a card game, and even a fighting game.

Riot won't be working alone on these projects. With Riot Forge, the studio aims to make League of Legends into a multi-faceted IP focused on making tons of cash, whether it be from game sales or engagement-driven microtransactions. The latter is right up Tencent's alley--the company makes billions every year from massively successful mobile games.
