Considering that the company was created in 2006, it is no surprise that its logo is updated to look slicker and fit with other modern designs in the industry. The new logo will be used across all their creations, including the Riot merch they wear at work.
While this change is an improvement to the logo in our opinion, it is also not the first time they did it. In 2019, before the 10-year anniversary of their biggest game, League of Legends, they made minor changes to the logo, as the old one was quite outdated.
Why are they updating it?
The quote from Riot themselves probably best answers this question:
“As Riot enters its second decade, we felt the timing was right to update and expand the Riot Games visual system to set us up for success long-term. The change to the logo was an output of building a more cohesive visual system including the creation of additional unique assets (like typography) that will help players recognize us more easily where we show up”.
To be fair, we completely agree with their statement, and making the fist stand out on its own, it does make the logo much better and more serious-looking in a way. Soon, the new press website will follow, where everyone will be able to find all the necessary information about the company. This includes information on releases, executive bios, including assets, media-related needs, and more.
Riot’s future is looking great
In 2021, Riot did quite a few releases, and they certainly put the “S” into Riot Games just like they promised. They released the Song of Nunu and Convergence for the Microsoft Windows platform, and while those games were fun, they certainly did not get as much attention as the Hextech Mayhem that was released on the Nintendo Switch too.
By far the biggest release of 2021 was the Ruined King, an RPG masterpiece that every League of Legends lore-enthusiasts should check out. This game is available on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
Of course, those releases are not the only things Riot Games are all about because their older titles are going to rock the new logo better than anything else, and we are, of course, talking about League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra, and Valorant. All esports betting lovers should be familiar with these titles, and 2022 is a year where esports is getting more competitive than ever in all of them.
We are very excited about what other things Riot Games is planning to bring in 2022, and while there is a tiny chance for a new title as Project L is not scheduled to release this year, they might have a surprise like Hextech Mayhem in the Riot Forge department.
