Riot Games has teamed up with Tencent to create a League of Legends Mobile game, reports from Reuters point out. This has been one of the most popular gaming franchises of all times and a good mobile game is overdue for quite a long time. Now that Tencent has teamed up with Riot for the development of this game, it is expected to be quite a thriller!
Let us take a closer look at this and see when can we expect this game to come out and what it will feature:
League of Legends Mobile: Development Already Underway!
Reports from Reuters point out that development on this game has already been going on for close to a year now. Sources close to the development have indicated that the game is unlikely to release in 2019. Furthermore, another interesting comment was made where it was said that: “League of Legends is like the World Cup whereas Honour of Kings is just the Asia Cup”
This is quite a statement considering Honour of Kings is one of the biggest and highest grossing names in China!
League of Legends Mobile to be a Revenue Powerhouse
Given that the franchise has earned over a billion dollars in PC in 2018, pushing it out for the mobile users is going to generate even more revenue for the company!
Reports also indicate that Tencent has been trying to convince Riot to get League of Legends Mobile out multiple times, but they finally agreed last year. Tencent is already a major name in the mobile gaming market with names such as PUBG and Call of Duty: Mobile in their kitty.
