Riot Games, the studio behind BAFTA winner League of Legends, was honoured with a Special Award at a BAFTA Los Angeles event on Monday 12 June.
The award was presented to co-CEOs and co-founders Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill, on behalf of Riot Games, in recognition of the studio’s creative contribution to the games industry. “Thank you to BAFTA. This is so meaningful to us,” said Beck and Merrill. “We graciously accept this on behalf of our full team and on behalf of the Rioters at home. And of course, a special thanks to all of our players.”
At BAFTA we aim to champion innovation and creativity. We are therefore delighted to recognise Riot Games with this BAFTA Special Award. - Nick Button-Brown, BAFTA Games Committee Chair
