As Lee put it, the moment has come to hand off the responsibility.

Jeremy “Brightmoon” Lee, who has been the executive producer of League of Legends for more than eight years, made the announcement today that he has changed his mind and chosen to step down from his position.

“This year has been a bit of a whirlwind,” Lee remarked in the video that was released today as a development update. “The accomplishments that we have achieved as a group, and most importantly, the results that we have been able to provide for you, have been really satisfying. In light of this, I have come to the conclusion that it is the appropriate time for me to leave my present position. Within the next several months, I will be handing over ownership of the position to a new executive producer.

While the function of executive producer is somewhat ambiguous, it is of critical significance in the grand scheme of things. It is said on Lee’s LinkedIn page that he is responsible for “ensuring the vision and strategy of League of Legends” and that he is also “responsible for the multiple teams on League having a north star, clear commitments, and what they need to meet them.”

The fact that Riot has not yet chosen a new executive producer for League of Legends is an interesting development. Despite the fact that the studio is currently looking for someone to fill the post, Lee said that he is “really optimistic that we’ll get an amazing leader and introduce you to them very soon.” Furthermore, Lee has said that he is not truly quitting Riot, despite the fact that he is taking a step back from League of Legends.

Having the opportunity to work on League for the last eight years has been a dream come true, and it has been an honour to collaborate with you and this fantastic development team. Despite the fact that this is a bittersweet experience, it is not farewell at all. I will be working on some other projects at Riot, and I am looking forward to getting back in touch with you when the time is appropriate.

In reaction to Lee’s parting statement that was posted on Twitter, Erin “Aureylian” Wayne, who is the global head of player community for Riot Computer Games, paid respect to Lee. “You have been such a bright spot in my time here at Riot, and while I’m sad to see you move on from League, I can’t wait to tackle new opportunities with you,” according to her. “Thank you for everything you’ve done for players!”

During my tenure at Riot, you have been an exceptional source of inspiration and motivation. Although I am saddened by your departure from League, I am eagerly anticipating the opportunity to explore new avenues with you. ❤️ I am grateful to you for all that you have done for the guys.

In recent years, Riot has been expanding its game portfolio by releasing spinoff “League of Legends Story” titles such as Ruined King and Mageseeker. This comes after the company spent many years concentrating only on League of Legends. Naturally, there is no indication as to what Lee will be going to at this moment; however, one option is the enigmatic Project L, which is the League of Legends fighting game that was revealed in 2019. In spite of the fact that there is still no indication of a release date, it is possible that if Lee is going over to that game, it may be a sign that the wheels are beginning to revolve in earnest. This is all speculation, however.

At this point in time, it does not seem like Lee will be departing immediately. In his goodbye letter, he said, “You’ll still see me in Season Start and possibly in some other things earlier in the year while we search for our next EP to lead the game.”

Originally, the title said that Lee had been “in charge” of League of Legends for eight years. However, this statement has been corrected. Joe Tung, who served as executive producer from 2015 to 2018, and Jessica Nam, who served in that capacity from 2019 to 20, were the individuals who came before him in the post of executive producer at Riot. He has been working there for that long. During the time when Nam was appointed to the position of vice president of the studio, Lee took over the job of executive producer. Since then, both Tung and Nam have left Riot to join Theorycraft Entertainment.
