League of Legends Animated Series Arcane is Coming This Fall

Fans have eagerly been awaiting the release of League of Legend's first animated series "Arcane".

NetflixGeeked Twitter account today confirmed the release of the delayed project expected to now be on our screens in Fall 2021.

While there is no specific date, fans will be happy to know that the animated series is finally ready.

Originally, the series was expected to launch during 2020 however, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Riot Games decided to push the release date back to ensure the safety of those working on the project and create a great product.

"Creative development and production is hard, especially in a world where you can’t see your coworkers IRL. We have video meetings now, which help, but they are no substitute for being in a room where we can really get the creative energy flowing. Combine these issues, along with the technical difficulties of production at the international scale, and the problem becomes a lot bigger." Said the head of Creative Development, Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street.
