League of Legends Is Coming to iOS and Android In 2019

League of Legends fans will be very happy to know that their game will be coming to their mobile devices very soon in 2019. According to a new report from Reuters, Tencent and Riot games are working on bringing League of Legends game to iOS and Android in 2019.

Although they began porting the game more than a year ago, a mobile edition of League of Legends is unlikely to arrive this year due to strained relationship between Riot and Tencent.

From the report:
 Tencent then developed a similar mobile offering, ‘Honour of Kings’ for China, which was launched in November 2015 and has become the world’s highest grossing multiplayer online battle arena game.But in doing so, it created tensions with Riot which were further inflamed when Tencent launched an adaptation of ‘Honour of Kings’, called ‘Arena of Valor’ for overseas markets in 2016 and 2017. ‘Arena of Valor’ has been regarded as a flop by some analysts after failing to click with Western gamers.
League of Legends raked in $1.4 billion in revenue last year, according to data provider Statista. But the game is not doing as well as it used to because that figure was down 21% from 2017. This is Riot’s only game so it’s natural they’re seeking new ways to monetize the title.
