Legends of Runeterra is a fantastic Card game that captures the spirit and the feeling of your favourite League of Legends characters and brings them to you in an even closer way. You can design your deck around specific champions and their followers, and you get amazing interactions between champions. The game has been a great source for more Lore and relations that nobody expected. The Game also features an incredible PvE experience in the Path of Champions.

Riot has officially layed off about 11% of their workforce, which is around 530 employees. This will have a huge impact on the development force that is working on Legends of Runeterra. Riot Games wants to focus more on their core live games which are mainly League of Legends, Valorant, Wild Rift and TFT. 

Prominent League figure Spideraxe has shared a snippet of the official Riot Statement on Twitter/X.

The LoR team will focus more heavily on the Path of Champions, as this is the game mode that the current player base enjoys the most. This allows them to experiment a lot more. The LoR team will have an announcement and detail video ready in the coming weeks, when they will talk more about the future of the game.
