At long last, Riot Games is set to be the one behind TFT Southeast Asia’s publishing. Currently, it’s Garena that publishes the mobile auto cheese battler in the region, though Riot does already look after League of Legends: Wild Rift in SEA.
As Riot points out in an official statement, Garena has been instrumental in the success of League of Legends in Southeast Asia over the past ten years, but now that the creator behind the franchise is ready to expand its efforts in the region, it’s the perfect time for Riot to take the reigns and self publish its mobile title.
In fact, the company is set to open offices in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia, which will no doubt aid it in its quest to self-publish its games in Southeast Asia. However, the change does mean that players need to switch their accounts from Garena to Riot, though you do receive a ton of rewards for doing so.
