“We are very excited to bring these talented developers and teams to Riot”, said Marc Merrill, Game Co-Founder, and Chairman.

Riot Games Acquires Wargaming Australia to expand its independent studio network
While operating as Wargaming Sydney, the studio was acquired in August 2012 and became one of Australia’s largest developers. Initially, the studio grew into a support studio for Wargaming titles, assisting other companies such as Gung Ho Online and Netease with games such as Grandia Online.
Since the development of BigWorld Technology, during its 25-year history, the studio has achieved 30 global MMO titles, helping to build its reputation as a major player by producing a number of web oxford games in one place.
Likewise, working with global development teams and producing next-generation game development servers and tools will help Riot improve the production of League of Legends, VALORANT, and general technology in the company.
“This has helped the studio grow and prosper”, Hirani said. “Being a part of Wargaming has been a huge journey for us over the past 10 years. We’ve been very impressed with the culture we’ve learned from dealing with everyone at Riot, and we can’t wait to bring our global development expertise to the teams. I know I speak for everyone when I say how excited we all are to join Riot and help deliver incredible experiences for players.”
The move brings the former development team under the Riots’ roof, while the publishing group works within the studio which continues to be part of Wargaming.
Wargaming will defend all its rights to BigWorld Technology, which has been a major part of many of the company’s ‘free-to-play online titles over the years.
