Have you ever thought that the League of Legends will be closed by Tencent?
In 2015, Tencent officially owned 100% of Riot’s shares and this meant that League of Legends was under Tencent’s control.
With the strong development, Riot Games has built a name for the League of Legends, the hottest MOBA game today and loved by millions of gamers around the world.
Not only in terms of image development, League of Legends has also increasingly proved to be more creative in terms of content with a lot of content being put into continuous creating attraction for this title.
Capturing the mentality of gamers, Riot and Tencent have been creating an increasingly great game.
However, have you ever thought about a day when League of Legends disappeared and Tencent was the mastermind?
You probably know about Tencent’s “buy LoL to develop Arena of Valor”.
At that time, Tencent asked Riot Games about bringing League of Legends into a mobile game but was rejected by Riot and confirmed that League of Legends could not play on smartphones. Later, Tencent developed his own game and the Arena of Valor was born.
Arena of Valor owns a large number of players and earns Tencent a huge amount of money. However, each of us found that AoV is a strange way of looking like League of Legends, from the map, the champion and the way to play.
Another hypothesis is that Tencent will decide whether to close the League one day and no longer have anything to do with Riot Games.
Currently, Riot Games is partnering with Tencent to produce LoL Mobile and this will likely affect the existence of the League of Legends.
This is not unreasonable, because until now League of Legends is still made by Riot Games game development team and Tencent is just their huge capital. When Tencent is no longer interested in League of Legends, it is possible to close it.
League of Legends is still in its peak period, the closing of League will not happen in a long time and we do not need to think until the day when the game cannot be downloaded.
