Are Vi and Caitlyn girlfriends in Arcane?

The pink-haired warrior explains to Caitlyn that she needs to understand her own appeal.
“You’re hot, sweetie,” says Vi. The scene is animated with a very erotic tone, especially in the way the character surrounds Caitlyn.
Arcane fans and League of Legends players have reacted to the scene on social media, and many are rooting for confirmation of Vi and Caitlyn’s romance.
The plot of the Netflix series indicates that the relationship between the two characters deepens and takes on more romantic contours throughout the episodes. However, fans will have to wait for the release of new chapters to see if Vi and Caitlyn will stay together.
Riot Games, the company responsible for League of Legends, has already expressed interest in expanding diversity and increasing the number of LGBTQ+ characters.
Neeko and Varus, for example, have already been confirmed as LGBTQ+ characters, but have not yet appeared in Arcane.
The game also annually celebrates LGBTQ+ Pride Month with special costumes and limited items.
Arcane is an excellent opportunity for the company to demonstrate its commitment to the LGBTQ+ community, particularly given the fact that Caitlyn and Vi are key characters in the Netflix production.
The next episodes of Arcane arrive on Netflix on November 20th.
