“It’s competitive, it has precise gunplay, it’s set on a beautiful near future earth and it has a lethal cast of characters, each with their own unique abilities,” Riot’s Anna Donlon says in the reveal video above. “This is our take on a competitive shooter.
“We promise that just like League, we’re in this for years and years to come. With Project A, we’re staying true to the high consequence gameplay of tac shooters, but we want to evolve the space, we want a tac shooter with more creativity, more expression and a lot more style. In Project A, your abilities create amazing tactical opportunities for your gunplay to shine.”
Donlon said the Project A team is “going heads down for a while” but that players can expect to hear more about the game in 2020.
Project A was announced alongside several other new titles during a Riot Games livestream celebrating the 10th anniversary of League of Legends this month.
They included League of Legends: Wild Rift for console and mobile, strategy card game Legends of Runeterra, fighting game Project L, and Project F, a title which will enable players to explore League’s world of Runeterra together.
These projects can be seen in the following event recap video, as can a newly announced mobile version of autobattler Teamfight Tactics.
