Riot Games founder Marc Merrill, also known as Tryndamere, recently took to Twitter to announce that Greg “Ghostcrawler” Street, who has been with the company for nine years, will be stepping away to focus on his family. Street was a key figure in the development of Riot’s upcoming massively multiplayer online game (MMO), which is still in the early stages of development.
Merrill assured fans that despite Street’s departure, the team is still hard at work on the MMO and is excited about the direction the game is taking. He emphasized that the development process is a marathon, not a sprint, and thanked fans for their patience as the team works to create an experience that players will love.
Merrill also expressed confidence in the team working on the MMO, comparing Street’s contribution to an amazing first leg in a relay race. He stated that whoever takes over from Street will be set up for success going forward.
Finally, Merrill issued a call to arms for MMO enthusiasts who are interested in helping to build the next big thing in online gaming. He encouraged anyone who has ever dreamed of being a part of creating an incredible MMO to reach out to Riot Games.
