League of Legends will celebrate its 10-year anniversary on October 15 — right in the middle of the 2019 League of Legends World Championship — with some livestreaming goodness, Riot Games announced Tuesday.
The anniversary stream will “share a glimpse of the future, including a first look at this year’s preseason changes and TFT’s next big content update.”
“Every day we see about 8 million peak concurrent players in League.* That makes League the biggest PC game in the world—it’s even bigger than the top ten games on Steam combined,” Riot Games bragged in the announcement, bringing up the combined peak concurrent users for all its regions, including Riot, Tencent and Garena.
Riot is also changing the League of Legends logo and font to usher this new era of the game, ditching the look that’s been with them for the past decade.
Speculations about what Riot will show on the anniversary stream are aplenty. Leaks of League of Legends Mobile surfaced not too long ago, and it’s no secret that the popular MOBA is coming to phones and tablets in the near future, so showing some footage of it is the perfect content for this livestream event. With Dota Underlords — TFT’s biggest competition — also exiting beta real soon, TFT also has the chance to one-up its Dota cousin and revive its declining viewership numbers.
