Riot Games was established in 2006 by entrepreneurial gamers who believe that player-focused game development can result in great games. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to critical and player acclaim. Recently named the most played PC game in the world, over 11 million play every month. Players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience.
