About Riot Games
Riot Games was founded in 2006 to develop, publish, and support the most player-focused games in the world. In 2009, we released our debut title, League of Legends, to worldwide acclaim. League has gone on to be the most-played PC game in the world and a key driver of the explosive growth of esports.
As League enters its second decade, we’re continuing to evolve the game while delivering new experiences with games including Legends of Runeterra, League of Legends: Wild Rift, and multiple work-in-progress titles; bringing Teamfight Tactics to mobile platforms; and exploring the world of Runeterra through multimedia projects across TV, music, comic books, and more.
The annual League of Legends World Championship features qualified esports teams from 13 international leagues. Worlds is the most widely viewed and followed esport tournament, and it is among the largest and most popular gaming and sporting events in the world.
Founded by Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill, we are headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and have 2,500+ Rioters in 20+ offices worldwide. We’ve been featured on numerous lists including Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For,” “25 Best Companies to Work in Technology,” “100 Best Workplaces for Millennials,” and “50 Best Workplaces for Flexibility.
