On Monday afternoon, Riot Games announced that they are looking for a helping hand. Or a team of helping hands as they begin work on their upcoming MMORPG based in the League of Legends universe. As it can take years for a project of such scale to see the light of day, the company is seeking external help as they balance a myriad of projects and games behind the scenes.
First announced during the company's League of Legends 10th Anniversary event back in 2019 and confirmed by an executive last year, Project F (the working title), is looking for expertise in the following areas:
- Gameplay engineering
- Game design
- UX design
- Game art
- Game production
All are encouraged to apply through the company's portal and more jobs will be posted as needed.
Over the past few years, Riot Games has worked to expand its footprint in the video game industry beyond its pride and joy, League of Legends. WIth Teamfight Tactics, the auto chess game mode; Valorant, the first-person shooter; and Ruined King, an upcoming story-driven, turn-based role-playing game, all requiring additional workers, it's no surprise that Riot Games will need even more hands on deck for the upcoming MMORPG.
According to Riot, as of May 2018, the company employs more than 2,500 individuals across 24 offices around the world. Their main headquarters are located in West Los Angeles, California.
