Riot Games president Marc Merrill's Twitter account was hacked and the hacker has leaked images of a League of Legends spin-off title that was being fooled around with, but ultimately shelved. Merrill confirmed this via his Twitter account which he has managed to regain control of:
"Yup, someone got onto my Twitter account," Merrill Tweeted on October 13. "Yup, someone shared some old screens from one of the many prototypes we've experimented with."
The hacker, identifying himself only as "Jason," asked for followers to retweet messages he posted from Merrill's account in trade for him releasing images and information linked to the company's projects.
"Well, I think this would be a good time show off Riot's card game, who wants to see pictures? 50 re-tweets for pictures? - Jason (God)," the hacker posted.
The message was followed by the release of an image showing the login screen for League of Legends: Supremacy which the hacker claims is a completed project.
"I have the server and the client source," he said. "Did I mention the game was fully completed, but never released? Riot doesn't want you to play this game. Take it up with them."
The hacker also uploaded template artwork for the cards and threatened to upload 200 megabytes worth of material, but apparently thought better of that after being contacted by Merrill.
After retaking his account Merrill said of the League of Legends: Supremacy leak:
"We're always working on a variety of new ideas for League & beyond. Lots of experimentation that may never see the light of day :)"
