Always put on the scale compared to the “key game”, but this game is very successful in the global market.
League of Legends: Wild Rift by Riot Games has surpassed the milestone of $ 500 million in spending from gamers globally in the App Store and Google Play repositories, according to estimates by Sensor Tower Store Intelligence. Launched globally starting October 2020, League of Legends: Wild Rift has become one of the world’s leading mobile MOBA titles.
According to Sensor Tower Game Intelligence, Wild Rift is ranked as the 2nd revenue-generating MOBA in the first half of 2022, accumulating about $218 million. This game is only behind Tencent’s Glory King at No. 1 with $ 1.4 billion in the same period. But remember, the Glorious King has 95% of its revenue from the Chinese market.
League of Legends: Wild Rift is Riot Games’ most successful and breakthrough breakthrough into the mobile field. This game ranks on Teamfight Tactics Mobile (released in March 2020 and grossed $299 million so far). Meanwhile, The Legend of Runeterra launched in April 2020 and earned more than 24 million USD.
Taken together, Riot Games’ mobile portfolio amassed $828 million in the 16 months after it went to market. Riot’s next mobile game, with great anticipation, is Valorant, based on the hit PC game that is also extremely successful.
Lien Quan was once considered a “key” game at the recent SEA Games
Regarding the most successful markets of League: Wild Rift, China is the top revenue generator, where it is released directly by Tencent. To date, this game has earned $ 364.6 million (only statistics on the App Store), accounting for 72.2% of total player spending. The United States ranks 2nd in terms of global player spending with 6.8% of total lifetime revenue, while South Korea ranks 3rd with 3.7%.
But Wild Rift is the only mobile MOBA to win gold
In Vietnam, although it has not been as successful as expected, League of Legends: Wild Rift is the only MOBA game on the mobile platform to win the gold medal at the 31st SEA Games held in Vietnam last May. Although always compared to the leading game, Wild Rift has also achieved its own success, on a global scale.
