It has been a decade since players first set foot on the Summoner’s Rift. Since then, League of Legends quickly rose to the top of the MOBA ranks as one of the most played games around the world, rivalling even DOTA in terms of number of players. Riot Games, the creators of League of Legends, is now ready for the next step in the game’s evolution, and according to reports, the company has decided to partner with Tencent to bring the game to mobile platforms.
The mobile version of League of Legends is presumed to play almost just like its PC counterpart, only with tweaked controls that are optimized for touch screens. The MOBA genre has been booming in the mobile platform in recent years, with titles like Mobile Legends and Tencent’s own Arena of Valor at the forefront. League of Legends will have its work cut out for it, but its existing fanbase will surely back it up.
While it has been some time since Riot and Tencent began working to bring League of Legends to mobile, it looks like it will still take some more time as there has been no indication of a 2019 release date. Players will have to stay tuned until more information becomes available about the mobile version of League of Legends.
