Publisher Riot Forge and developer Airship Syndicate have delayed Ruined King: A League of Legends Story from its previously planned early 2021 release window to general 2021. It will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, followed later by PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series with a free upgrade.
Here is Riot Forge’s full message on the delay:
“Hey everyone! Riot Forge here with a quick update on Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.
Our core values as Riot Forge are preetttttty simple. We want to partner with indie developers that tell kick-ass stories, and we want to be transparent with our community; so we would like to take a moment and share some information with you.
This year has presented a number of challenges for all of us that have been outside of our control. With that in mind, we have recently been evaluating our timelines and we are going to need to make some adjustments for Ruined King.
We told you at Worlds 2020 we’d be taking you across Runeterra’s port cities and haunted isles in “early 2021,” but it looks like it’s going to take a little bit longer to get there. You will notice we’ll be switching our messaging to “coming 2021.”
We’re excited for you to experience the fantastic adventure Airship Syndicate has created with Ruined King, and we want to ensure we support their vision and give you an awesome game.
We appreciate each and every one of you and can’t wait to embark on this journey with you all, see you tonight.
