In a recent interview, Riot Games CEO Nicolo Laurent has said that 2023 will be League of Legends’ biggest year and biggest budget ever.

League of Legends has been constantly growing for 12 years now, ascending to become the single largest video game in the world with over 128 million monthly players worldwide as of late 2021. According to Riot Games’ CEO, 2023 will have the biggest budget for League of Legends ever, an exciting prospect for fans of all kinds.

In an interview with Konbini in late November, Nicolo Laurent spoke on Riot Games’ growth as a company and its MOBA’s trajectory to become a multi-generational game.

In the interview, he touched on just how much the game and Riot Games have grown in recent years. Laurent cited that League of Legends began with a team of 30 to 40 employees and has grown to over 500 professionals working on it day in and day out. And it’s not just the scale of players and employees that has grown; Laurent noted that he had just approved the game’s budget for 2023 and that it was the largest-ever budget for the wildly-successful MOBA.

So what could fans expect from LoL’s biggest year yet? Fans on Reddit hoped for a client overhaul, given the often buggy and substandard performance of the game’s client. Others joked that this increased budget would simply be added to more skin releases and cosmetics to make Riot Games more money.

In truth, League of Legends is getting bigger year-after-year, and Laurent seems confident that it can make it to the 25-year mark, where parents will start to bring their kids into the game that they’ve been playing for most of their lives.

Whatever 2023 holds for the game, fans can be excited that Riot is putting more resources behind it than ever.
