Season 2 Summarized in One Word
Riot Praeco: War
When fans asked Riot Praeco to summarize Arcane season 2 in one word, Riot Praeco replied with “war.” However, whether this war means Zaun vs. Piltover or Piltover & Zaun vs. Noxus (or any other region) is still unclear.
Riot Skribbles: Rubicon
Similarly, when fans asked Riot Scribbles to summarize Arcane season 2 in one word, he replied with “Rubicon.” There is a well-known idiom, “crossing the Rubicon,” which means “to pass the point of no return.” This word also has the same vibe as Riot Praeco’s word, war.
Caitlyn & Vi Ship?
When Reddit users asked Riot Skribbles if CaitVi shippers would be pleased with the upcoming season, he said there would be a part they would love, while there would also be another part they would despise.
More Ekko & Jinx in Arcane Season 2
When fans asked Riot Praeco if there would be more interactions between Ekko and Jinx, he replied, “Oh yes.” Furthermore, Riot Praeco also said there was supposed to be a scene in episode 7 where young Ekko tried to save Powder (Jinx) a couple of months after episode 3. It was supposed to be a very touching moment. But they couldn’t implement it due to budget and lack of time. So we might see this scene in Arcane Season 2.
Silco & Vander
When fans asked the creators if we would see younger Silco and Vander before the betrayal, Riot Praeco replied, “Yes, you will.” The question also asked if we would see Silco when he first took Jinx in. As both replies were affirmative, we can safely say that we will see more of Silco in season 2.
More Regions in Arcane Season 2?
Riot Praeco confirmed on Reddit that they wanted to explore more regions of Runeterra. But he added that it would take more time as they want to earn their way to the larger worldview first. So he assured the fans that it is coming in the future. More regions might not come in season 2, but we might see more regions in season 3. Furthermore, he also stated that he is interested in working on Freljord, Ionia & Noxus.
