Riot Games cuts 530 jobs and axes Riot Forge in major shakeup

Riot Games is making 530 staff redundant in a big shake-up that’s going to see the company refocus, axing their Riot Forge publishing arm and changing development to Legends of Runeterra.

In an open letter to all staff that was published on the Riot Games website, CEO Dylan Jadeja – who stepped into the role in September 2023 – explained the layoffs, outlined the measures the company would be taking to support the employees made redundant, and also how these cuts will affect the company moving forwards.
