When it comes to information on new champions in League of Legends, before they are officially unveiled by Riot Games, the community is usually quick to target leaks and combine clues/teasers together to paint a portrait prior to any announcement.
Whilst most of the attention around the game has been focused around preseason, the new shop and its UI and all of the new/adjusted items, there has not been much on the subliminal teasing of a new champion.
A YouTuber by the name of “Remus” and a Reddit user with the alias “Rasolc” seem to believe that they may have found the answer to who will be the next champion released by Riot. In a thread titled “New champ teaser in front of our faces”, Rasolc discusses the possible revelation of a new champion, hidden in the poster for preseason.

The picture in question may be observed above, and the green thing holding a lava-looking gun/lance in the bottom right corner is what fans are suspecting could possibly be the next champion.
This teaser is similar to the picture that Riot announced about a month ago of all of their upcoming new champions in the Champion Roadmap (image below). Check out the roadmap here:

“Attention! The empire will pay greatly for the capture and detainment of this runaway criminal. The fugitive is EXTREMELY dangerous, so approach with caution. They are heavily armored and will attack if even slightly provoked. Wear light armor, as reports show warbands have been killed with their heavy gear twisted and shattered, littering the ground around them. The criminal’s been known to mount a quick retreat when cornered, so bringing a highly-trained team is recommended. If you somehow manage to detain this criminal, please bring them directly to the closest empire-building marked with a black rose.”
More info around this topic was discussed by Remus on YouTube, who posted a video on his thoughts of the potential leak.
We do not know for sure if the rumours are true, but going from track record of fans working out new champions via teasers before they are officially announced, we could be seeing a new champ in the bot lane before the new year - but only time will tell.
