Recently there has been some speculation surrounding League of Legends and its future other platforms, thanks to a recent partnership between Riot and Microsoft. However, the developer has now confirmed that there are no plans to bring League to other platforms.
In a statement sent to Gamespot, a Riot Games spokesperson said: “Today’s announcement mentioning League of Legends has generated a lot of speculation in the LoL player community. We’d like to clarify that our focus is on making sure League plays great on Mac and PC. No plans for console, mobile or other platforms at this time”.
Riot recently announced that it would be working with Microsoft, bringing League of Legends to the Windows 10 store, although the normal client will still be available. This is where the speculation began.
The deal meant that Microsoft would provide Riot with ‘additional resources’ for League of Legends maintenance as well as opportunities to launch new projects.
Additionally, other MOBA titles, like Smite are starting to appear on consoles, potentially opening the door for more games in the genre to come to Sony or Microsoft’s systems.
