Riot games has announced their decision to grant a seven-day extension to their previous deadline set for Echo Fox to take action against investor Amit Raizada, who was accused of sending racist comments and threats to Rick Fox.
According to the statement, Riot has deemed an extension necessary after talks with Echo Fox, despite their original 60-day deadline.
Following a report by Dexerto which first exposed the hostility, Upcomer reported on a series of text messages sent by Raizada to another investor within the organization that contained antisemitic language. Shortly after, Echo Fox released a statement detailing their intent to remove the investor from their organization.

When Echo Fox gave their response to Riot's initial ruling set by LCS commissioner Chris Greeley, they implied that they were operating within a much smaller time frame to take corrective actions against the investor at first. This extension implies that the situation is taking longer to conclude than Echo Fox had initially planned.
In the eyes of Overwatch caster and former Renegades co-owner Christopher "MonteCristo" Mykles, this ruling is inconsistent with the 10 days he was given to relinquish ownership of Renegades and sell the team's LCS slot.
At time of writing, Echo Fox has not released a statement detailing the progress towards meeting the deadline.
