Riot Games Announces It Is Working on a New Beat’Em Up

Rising Thunder Riot Games confirms that it's working on a fighting game
Emmett Howard | 05 August, 2019, 05:27

As part of the festivities, EVO Co-founder and Riot Employee, Tom Cannon, confirmed that Riot is working on a fighting game, a fact that he jokingly called "The worst kept secret in the universe".

"Like as big as things are, we think it has the potential to get bigger", said Cannon. Are you excited for Riot's new fighting game? Rising Thunder was a canceled fighting game being developed by Radiant Entertainment, a development studio that spearheaded Cannon, along with with his brother Tom and former Capcom developer Seth Killian.

I'm not much of a fighting game fan.

"Back in 2016, when we joined forces with Riot, I said we were going to go in the hole for a while, right?"

"That probably hit them and that may be the initial reason for the sailing problems of the three boats ", Balilo told reporters. According to the Philippine Coast Guard-Iloilo (PCG), first two incidents happened around 12:30 p.m.

Both Cannon brothers and Killian still work at Riot today, so it is nearly certain that they are spearheading the new fighting game for the studio.

Yesterday, August 2, was the opening day of the Evolution Championship Series (EVO). The longstanding tournament dropped Super Smash Bros.

Before Riot's statement, Tom Cannon already confirmed the game in an interview that went live on Twitch. Development on Rising Thunder was halted after the acquisition by Riot, but Radiant released the source code for players in 2017.

"Through this partnership, Riot Games is bolstering its capabilities by implementing an effective and innovative integrity program", said Andy Cunningham, head of North America integrity services and league relations at Sportradar. Generally speaking, if you buy a developer that is working on a game, it is because you too want to work on the game. Common speculation has been that Radiant is making a fighting game using characters from the League of Legends roster. So far, we know nothing more than the confirmation that League of Legends' devs now develops a new title. As Cannon reported, more information on the upcoming Riot Games' fighting game would soon come out.
