How many people play League of Legends is a common question after the rise of popularity in Fortnite.
Since its release in 2009, League of Legends has expanded its player base to reach a wider audience of players from around the globe. The game’s developer Riot Games releases information as to exactly how many people played the game from each region only so often, but with the rise of new games like Fortnite, many people are left wondering: exactly how many people play League of Legends in 2018?
How Many People Play League of Legends in 2018?
The game’s developer has maintained its silence this year about the exact number of players the game has reached, making it difficult to say for certain where the number of monthly players currently stands in 2018. As a result, many fans of the game can assume the total number of monthly players is over 100 million, perhaps even closer to 120 million, given the rate of growth over the years and increase in viewership for the game's professional league in 2018.
