President of Riot Games Marc Merrill was the victim of a Twitter account hack over the weekend, which resulted in the posting of images of a standalone card game titled League of Legends: Supremacy.

In a series of tweets by the hacker (via Kotaku), it was stated that Supremacy was completed but never released by the company. Images of the game’s log-in screen and card templates were published on Merrill’s Twitter account, followed by a threat by the hacker to expose more information if Merrill didn’t email him.

Merrill later regained control of his account and confirmed that someone had taken over of his account and posted images of a prototype. He also added that the Riot team is constantly working on new ideas and prototypes, many of which never see the light of day.

“This is the real Marc. Account’s back in my hands,” he wrote on his Twitter account. ”Yup, someone got onto my Twitter account. Yup, someone shared some old screens from one of the many prototypes we’ve experimented with.

“We’re always working on a variety of new ideas for League & beyond. Lots of experimentation that may never see the light of day.”
