It seems no one can keep a lid on the success of League of Legends. Riot Games’ free-to-play MOBA continues to grow and grow.

Now in its fifth year, League of Legends’ player base has catapulted up to 27 million players daily, more than doubling the figure of 12 million players set just over a year ago…

Just last week it was revealed that League of Legends had made $624m last year, helped in no small part by peak concurrent players hitting over 7.5 million. For a bit of context, DotA 2 is the most popular game on Steam at the moment, managing just over 600,000 concurrent players.

League of Legends seems to keep pulling in huge numbers, thanks in part to its popularity amongst the Twitch streaming community, as well as the rise of professional eSports. Millions tuned in to watch the eSports World Championship finals, while hundreds of thousands check out live Twitch streams every day.
