French studio Fortiche put in years of hard work into the first season of Arcane, so it was expected that the wait for season 2 would be long.
Though the quality of the first episodes of the series was impressive, fans are still wondering when Jinx and Vi will return. Unfortunately, it won’t be this year, as Nicolo Laurent, the big boss of Riot Games, confirmed that the production of the show would take more time.
In his recent interview with IGN, Nicolo Laurent did mention he has seen a bit of the second season:
“I just watched the third episode of Season 2 before my flight to China, so we’re making progress on it,” Laurent said. Though the show needs a lot of work before it can be released:
“It is not ready yet, and there’s two reasons for that. One, you want the quality, you just don’t wanna rush, and so that takes time. So that’s the good reason. The bad reason is honestly like, we didn’t know if Season 1 was gonna be a success… If I had known we could have started Season 2 way earlier, but we didn’t know so we kind of waited a bit and so now we’re paying the price, so it’s unfortunately not going to be this year.”
Let’s hope for a release in 2024. And let’s see if the next episodes will be as great as the firsts.
