Riot: League of Legends to stay Mac/PC only

Riot Games has made a big announcement about the future of League of Legends, and while purists are likely to be pretty happy, some fans will inevitably be disappointed. Simply put, there are “no plans” to take the super-popular MOBA to any platforms other than Mac and PC.

The studio made the announcement after parent company Tencent announced it was working in partnership with Microsoft prompting Xbox One console rumours.

However, we’re told that Microsoft deal confirmed the fact that League of Legends will work quite happily on Windows 10 when it launches later this year, with Riot thoroughly shutting the stories down again:

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.

…of course, the key words in that statement? At this time. Take that as you will.

League of Legends is available right now – and for the foreseeable future – on Mac and Windows PC, and it’s free-to-play.
