A brand new launch window for Season 2 of Arcane has been detailed by Riot Video games CEO Nicolo Laurent, and sadly, it is coming a lot later than many followers have absolutely been hoping for. Following the discharge of the League of Legends animated sequence again in 2021, Netflix introduced that it was within the means of working with Riot on a second season of Arcane. Since that announcement, although, no additional information on Season 2 has ended up coming about, which has led to many questions from followers. Sadly, it looks as if this lack of awareness is one thing that may solely find yourself persevering with for the rest of the 12 months.

Chatting with the LPL’s Guan Ze Yuan in a brand new interview, Laurent made clear that Arcane is not going to be launched earlier than the tip of 2023. Lately, Laurent mentioned that he watched the third episode of Season 2 and expressed pleasure about what’s being performed with the show. For these which are wanting to see extra of Arcane for themselves, although, Laurent mentioned blatantly that they will have to attend till 2024.

“It’s not prepared but and there [are] two causes for that,” Laurent mentioned when requested about where Arcane Season 2 is at. “One, you need the standard. We simply do not need to rush and in order that takes time. In order that’s the nice purpose. The unhealthy purpose is, actually, we did not know if Season 1 was going to be successful so we did not begin Season 2 till [later]. If I had recognized, we might have began Season 2 approach earlier. However we did not know so we waited a bit and now we’re paying the worth. So, sadly, it isn’t going to be this 12 months.”

Though that is disappointing information to obtain from Laurent, his rationalization of why Season 2 of Arcane is taking so lengthy is smart. The one constructive takeaway from all of that is that if Season 3 finally ends up occurring additional down the street, Riot and Arcane are already probably planning for it. As such, that future season (which has but to be formally confirmed) ought to find yourself being launched a lot sooner after Season 2 wraps up.
