Riot Games dropped the mic on the entire gaming industry during its 10-year anniversary event. It’s great to see despite all the new games and projects announced, they wisely aren’t giving up on their baby in League of Legends.

By now, you’ve probably heard of all the amazing new games and projects being developed by Riot Games with 2020 being targeting as a huge year for the company. They’ve announced a ton of new games coming to different genres in gaming but one thing that stood out the most was the fact that they’re not giving up on their baby that started it all. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, League of Legends is going nowhere.

Yes, with new games coming out in the FPS, simulation, console, and mobile markets, Riot Games have no plans in abandoning their flagship game which is a delight to see. They’re working on adding Senna, the first-ever Support Marksman to hit the game, and will make dramatic preseason changes in 2020.

Besides the actual game itself, League of Legends has spawned arguably the best and well, most popular Esports scene the gaming world has ever seen. They’re getting record-breaking viewership, huge sponsors joining the Rift, and continue to perfect the MOBA scene by constantly updating and enhancing the game.

It’s all a breath of fresh air, to be honest. Too many times, gaming companies will want to tap into other markets but abandon the game that got them all that fame and fortune in the first place.

You know, not many game updates, bugs that are still not fixed, and a lack of overall new content. It’s frustrating, to say the least, but thankfully, that isn’t the case with Riot Games.

They know exactly what they’re doing and being a gamer of over 30 years now, I haven’t felt this excited about the future of a gaming company since Blizzard Entertainment many years ago. Riot Games is ushering in a new era that proves you can still be insanely profitable but not forgetting about the core values of ensuring a high-quality gaming experience without forcing gamers to shell out a ton of money.

With the current state of gaming dominated by battle royale games, Riot Games effectively put every other gaming company on notice with their massive plans for the future and they’re not even entering that particular genre. Best of all? League of Legends will still dominate, influence, and be around to lead the charge for many years to come. It’s great to see even with a new FPS, new versions of League of Legends coming to mobile/console, a fighting game, and a card game, the original PC hit isn’t going anywhere and rightfully so.
