Jeremy 'Brightmoon' Lee, the executive producer of the globally popular game 'League of Legends', has announced his departure from the role at Riot Games. Brightmoon, who joined Riot in 2015 as the lead gameplay producer, ascended to become the executive producer, playing a pivotal role in shaping the course of the game for nearly a decade.

The announcement was made during the latest League of Legends developer update. In this final update of the year, Brightmoon reflected on the whirlwind of 2023 for both the League community and its development team. He expressed satisfaction with the updates delivered and considered this an appropriate time for a change in leadership.

Brightmoon will continue to be visible in the community for a while. “You’ll still see me in Season Start," he mentioned, implying his presence in initial 2024 engagements and until a new executive producer is appointed. This change doesn’t signify an end to his tenure at Riot Games, as Brightmoon disclosed plans to take on other, yet undisclosed, responsibilities within the studio.

The news has stirred mixed emotions among League of Legends fans. Many have lauded Brightmoon for his openness and commitment to the game. As the community and team await more details on the in-game Honor system and monetization changes, Riot Games prepares to enter a new era of leadership for one of the most influential games in eSports history.

While awaiting further updates and the introduction of a new executive producer, players and fans can look forward to the upcoming League of Legends season 14, with a pre-release version already available for testing. The legacy of Brightmoon’s leadership will continue to be felt as the game evolves under new guidance.
