League of Legends Zaun - The New Marksman 

The developers have shared very few details about the upcoming champion, yet the significant justification for that excitement is the appearance of Zaun in the Arcane Netflix trailer that just shows them masked.

This Arcane trailer showcased different characters including fighting sisters Jinx and Vi with green electric attacks and skyboarding across Zaun. Considering the famous sisters cross paths with the Zaun underworld, it's probable this new marksman is working for the city's Chembarons as a recruited champion.

Ryan revealed that LoL Zaun will be released early next year, i.e., 2022 in the first few patches in Season 12. He stated, "I’m getting amped just thinking about it, and if you are as well, get ready for a hyper new champion very early next year." 

There are likewise chances that players might see the new Zaun champion star in the upcoming Netflix's Arcane series, however, their real Summoner's Rift appearance will probably happen in 2022. 

Like every event, Riot was initially planning to release this new champion at the end of 2021, however, it did not fit the events and hence was pushed a year back. The developer said, "Both of the champions we planned to release towards the end of the year were originally meant to tie into an event, but as development went on it became clear they didn’t quite fit. We felt good about both champions’ directions and didn’t want to change them to fit in with the event, so we decided to stay true to their characters."
