Riot Games, Inc. is a video game developer, publisher, and esports tournament organizer based in the United States. West Los Angeles, California is where the company’s headquarters are located. Founded by Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill in September 2006 to develop League of Legends, the firm has now expanded to include multiple League spin-off games as well as Valorant, an unrelated first-person shooter.
Riot has been a part of Chinese company Tencent since 2011. Riot Games’ publishing arm, Riot Forge, controls the production of League spin-offs by other developers as a publisher. Arcane, a television series set in the League of Legends universe, was created in collaboration with Fortiche.
Riot runs 14 League of Legends esports leagues throughout the world, including the League of Legends World Championship and the Valorous Champions Tour.
Corporate sponsorships, merchandise, and streaming rights for its leagues are all sold by the firm, which has 24 offices across the world as of 2018. Riot has been accused of a hostile workplace culture, including gender discrimination and sexual harassment, and has been sued. In reaction to these charges, the firm was chastised for using forced arbitration.
Brandon “Ryze” Beck and Marc “Tryndamere” Merrill, the two founders of Riot Games, met as roommates at the University of Southern California, where they both studied business. Beck and Merrill argued that too many video game producers jumped from game to game too frequently, citing Defense of the Ancients as an example of how games could be sustained and marketed in the long run. They were also inspired by Asian video game creators who offered their games for free and then charged for additional goodies.
