Riot Games is launching League of Legends: Wild Rift on Android, iOS and consoles in 2020 -- along with a few other new games. Reports about a mobile game meant to expand LoL's reach in Asia started surfacing earlier this year -- now the developer has confirmed that it's been in the works for quite a while. The company says it took some time to announce Wild Rift, because it's not just a port of LoL for PC. Riot Games chose to rebuild "the whole game from scratch" to create a polished version for the devices it's coming to.
The upcoming multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) for mobile enables faster matches and features a dual-stick, thumb-friendly control scheme designed for the platforms it's for. You'll find that Riot mixed familiar elements with the new, though, including the use of a 5v5 map that's based on LoL's largest map Summoner's Rift. Wild Rift will also feature 40 characters from LoL's existing roster of champions, with more to follow in the future.

League of Legends is still one of the most popular PC games in the world, but sources suggest that revenue dipped last year, down 21 percent from 2017. Given the drop off, a brief survey of the MOBA mobile landscape is enough to realize that the game's arrival on iPhone and Android was the logical next step. Titles like Fortnite and PUBG have shown that if a game's mechanics can be translated successfully to touchscreen devices, then expanding to mobile can prove hugely successful.
Riot plans to launch the mobile version "everywhere in the world by the end of 2020," followed by the game's debut on console. Alpha and beta versions of the game will be released in the next few months, rolling out in China first.
The announcement of League of Legends: Wild Rift is part of Riot Games’ 10-year anniversary celebration for the popular MOBA. The festivities included a teaser for a character-based shooter codenamed Project A, which appears to be a cross between Overwatch and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
