League of Legends is officially coming to mobile, developed by Tencent

League of Legends Android

Tencent is currently working on an official mobile version of League of Legends, alongside the original developer Riot Games.

Presumably, it will play almost identically to the original, with reworked controls and UI for mobile.

League of Legends is a hugely popular MOBA on PC

Tencent has form in bringing popular IPs to mobile, first with PUBG and soon with Call of Duty: Mobile.

Prior to that, Tencent previously put out Honour of Kings, a League of Legends-inspired MOBA in Asia, which launched in the west as Arena of Valour.

That game never really took off with western players though, so Tencent wants to go back in and recreate League of Legends in full.

We’re not sure when it will launch though, so we’ll just have to wait and see. We’ll keep you posted.
