Airship Syndicate Icon Airship Syndicate is a video game developer contracted by Riot Games through Riot Forge to produce additional games in the League of Legends universe.


Located in thriving Austin, Texas, Airship Syndicate was founded by four industry vets formerly of Vigil Games - the house that Darksiders built. Led by visionary comic artist Joe Madureira, they work with a focused group of talented contributors located both in our studio and around the world. Our first project, Battle Chasers: Nightwar, recently shipped on PC, Switch, Xbox One and PS4.

Their goal is simple: build a lean, fun, independent game studio to create top quality games for a variety of gaming platforms.

With the occasional Formal Friday (they did it once).
