The long-awaited release date for Arcane has been revealed, where it will be on Netflix sometime this Fall.

As the 2021 Mid-Season Invitational is creeping the corner, League of Legends and Netflix both tweeted another trailer for Arcane which revealed that it would be published on Netflix after no updates for 11 months.

Originally, the series was announced on Oct. 15, 2019, and was expected to release in 2020 following League of Legends' tenth anniversary. However, due to the limitations and difficulties from the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, development and its release date had to be pushed back to a proposed date of sometime in 2021.

This is Riot Games' first journey into releasing a major motion picture, aside from its music videos and champion cinematics.

There is little information of what the story will be, however Riot Games stated that it will be about "the origin of two iconic champions - and the power that will tear them apart." The setting is so far based around Piltover and Zaun with the trailers centering around Vi and Jinx, perhaps to explain the contentious sisterhood between the two characters.

Riot Games is producing the series with Fortiche Productions, a studio that has helped produce some of the game's most-watched videos on YouTube, including the music video for "POP/STARS" by fictitious K-pop group, K/DA, and "Warriors" for the 2014 World Championship.
