When is League of Legends: Wild Rift coming to consoles? A console version of Wild Rift was announced alongside the mobile version, but now that the mobile version is available for iOS and Android, many fans are wondering when they can expect the console version for PS4 and Xbox. Wild Rift is a separate version of League of Legends that was built from the ground up for mobile devices and consoles, bringing a faster version of the game to a much wider audience. Here’s everything we know about the League of Legends: Wild Rift console release date.
League of Legends: Wild Rift Console Release Date
There is currently no release date for the console version of League of Legends: Wild Rift. The game was recently released worldwide on mobile devices and the console version will be available soon. The game was originally scheduled to be released in 2020 but has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
When the game was first announced it sounded like the mobile and console versions of the game would be released at the same time, but now that the mobile version is available worldwide and the console versions are nowhere to be seen, it doesn’t seem to be the case. Developing over the past year has understandably been tough for almost every studio in the industry, and Riot Games is no exception.
Riot has several other League of Legends projects in the works, including a story-driven single-player role-playing game and a fighting game. As a result, the console version of Wild Rift is still in development alongside these games. Ruined King: A League of Legends Story was originally supposed to be released in early 2021, but has now been postponed until later this year, so it could indicate the Wild Rift console’s release date. If Wild Rift comes out after Ruined King, the game might not be released until 2022.
Which consoles is Wild Rift coming to?
Riot Games has not specified which consoles Wild Rift will be coming to, but the game is expected to be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and Nintendo Switch released.
Riot’s other upcoming League of Legends title, Ruined King, will be released later this year and will hit all of the platforms listed above. Therefore, it would make sense for the developer to use these platforms for Wild Rift as well. Since the game was first developed for phones, it can be played on consoles without any problems, even on Nintendo Switch. The PS5 and Xbox Series X | S offer incredibly high frame rates and resolutions.
League of Legends: Wild Rift is now available for iOS and Android devices. A console version of the game is currently under development.
