Riot Games will be the sole publisher of League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics in Southeast Asia beginning in January 2023.
This follows a 12-year collaboration with Singaporean game publisher and developer Garena.
It’s about time that LoL and TFT join the lineup considering Riot already self-publishes titles like VALORANT, Legends of Runeterra, and League of Legends: Wild Rift in the SEA region.
According to a press release from Riot, the company has already established a new structure in Asia Pacific to further its efforts in nations like Japan and India where it already self-publishes.
In addition, we are also in the process of establishing new local offices in key countries including the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Players in these countries can look forward to having a dedicated Riot office focused purely on creating hyper-local experiences by tailoring our games to audiences in each country and the region as a whole.
The PCS, which still doesn’t have much of a presence on the international scene, will have something to look forward to in this.
Even though Taiwan is home to some of the top teams in the PCS, it is odd that Taiwan is not mentioned as being on the list.
Additionally, Riot discussed the transfer of players from the current Garena game client.
However, Riot will make the process as simple and seamless as possible, so do not worry.
Riot and Garena will collaborate closely on the transition “on an account migration process,” which will be accessible to everyone in SEA on November 18.
On the Account Migration microsite, a comprehensive tutorial and FAQ are now accessible.
League of Legends & Teamfight Tactics will be published by Riot Games for the first time in Southeast Asia, starting this January.

Riot is also offering a variety of in-game rewards as a bonus incentive to players who decide to migrate their accounts ahead of schedule.
In order to further improve the player’s experience as a component of the Riot ecosystem, there will also be welcome events and neighborhood activities.
This implies that players from the SEA will be able to participate in massive events and cross-product campaigns.
Riot has made sure that players can keep their account data, despite the fact that some players will undoubtedly worry about how secure the migration process will be for their accounts.
This includes significant account content like champions, in-game skins and currency, and emotes.
The off-season will be filled with anticipation for what lies ahead for the 2023 season now that Worlds 2022 has concluded.
