Chris Kaleiki, a former game designer on World of Warcraft who said he was “unhappy with the state of the game” after quitting Blizzard entertainment last year, has announced the launch of a new venture called Notorious Studios, backed by a few investors, one of which is League of Legends and Valorant developer Riot Games.

Riot’s investment in Notorious Studios was part of a $5 million injection that also includes venture capital funds Galaxy Interactive and 1Up Ventures, according to VentureBeat. Kaleiki said Riot’s decision to back the studio reflects a shared commitment to their players and communities.
