Riot Games invests in animation studio Fortiche Production

A partnership that lasts, and a place on the board of directors acquired.

Between Riot Games and Fortiche, it's a story that lasts. The American giant and the French animation studio have been working hand in hand for nearly ten years. First for Get Jinxed, Warriors or POP/STARS clips . But obviously more recently with the Arcane series . To cement this collaboration, Riot Games has just announced a stake in Fortiche Production. This is the publisher with a "  significant minority stake  " in the words of the press release. Which also specifies that two members of Riot have joined the board of directors of Fortiche.

The Arcane Hype

To say that Arcane blew up everything in its path would be an understatement. The public was quickly there, since the series ranked number 1 in viewing on Netflix upon its release and for 3 weeks, and in the top 10 for 52 countries. Recently, Arcane won nine Annie Awards, including Best TV Show/Mainstream Media, Best Character Design, or Best Screenplay.

The various collaborations with Riot Games, and especially Arcane, have made Fortiche Production a new major player on the international animation scene. Through its trust, Riot Games has given us the means to achieve our mutual ambitions, and has proven that we can offer new content capable of reaching a large audience. In 2023, we will celebrate our ten years of collaboration: there is no better way to symbolize the trust and ambitions of our two companies than this association!

Pascal Charrue, Jérôme Combe and Arnaud Delord, co-founders of Fortiche

The participation between Riot and Fortiche should not stop anytime soon. In addition to the already announced season 2 of Arcane , other projects are in development. The editor has a lot of ideas and stories to tell around Runeterra.
