Rising Thunder closes after Riot Games buys Radiant

rising thunder

Rising Thunder is no more. Riot Games, makers of League of Legends, have acquired Radiant Entertainment and in the process killed the free-to-play fighting game that was being developed by ex-Capcom’s Seth Killian with the aim of becoming big at eSports. The Rising Thunder team will start working on a new game that they will reveal “when the time is right”. The robot fighting game will be closed on March 18, 2016. The other game from Radiant is Stonehearth, the 16-bit inspired town building game, which will see its development go on, alpha after alpha.

It’s sad to see Rising Thunder come and go so quickly, so let’s hope Riot Games puts the talent of the newly acquired team to good use.

      WHY on EARTH would they kill off this promising game :'(
      i thought Rising Thunder was going to be a reasonably good and sensible game in the genre ?!

      why the hell would Riot do this ?! isnt it THEIR OWN LOSS ?

        Well it maybe looks nice on paper that Riot closed the game, but rememmber that there is no Riot anymore, the overlord there is Tencent that owns Riot from 2011, so there is a possibility that the decision was mabe by Tencent but the slave company(Riot) is on paper.
