Riot Games might be planning to make a live-action film in the coming months, as suggested by their recent job posting on the official website.

The website states that Riot Games is looking for a Global Head of Live Action Film as well as a Global Head of Live-Action TV.

The page also suggests that the publisher is looking to make feature films for not just the League of Legends cinematic universe but for their other titles as well.

When talking about the new job descriptions, the website read:

“At Riot, we work every day to make it better to be a player. But being a player doesn't stop at the end of a game anymore. As the gaming landscape continues to collide with entertainment, we're building a new team to bring Riot's IPs to players around the world in new ways, and invite new audiences into the fold.”
“This team will imagine and develop custom IP experiences and products - animation, interactive narratives, consumer products, and beyond - that deepen players' and fans' connections to the universe we've created. In collaboration with teams across the organization, this team will aim to show players and the world that entertainment now starts with games.”
