League of Legends has been around for so long that people have always questioned when it will "die." Despite these constant assumptions that the game is on the decline, League of Legends has consistently been one of the most watched games on Twitch.
With the new season releasing earlier this month, Riot Games should not have to worry about their game becoming irrelevant anytime soon. All the new changes have helped increase the excitement about League of Legends among the player base, and people might wonder how many people play the game currently.
How Many People Play League of Legends January 2023?
Thankfully, there is a website that keeps track of monthly League of Legends players and the peak number of players during a single day within that same time frame. Since the summer of 2021, the average number of monthly League of Legends players has hovered around 150 million.
For the past 30 days, League of Legends has had more than 151 million active players. Additionally, the peak number of players during a single day has been almost 14 million over the past month. Notably, the average monthly players increased by nearly three million during January. This is likely due to the new season beginning and the Lunar Revel Event.
Even though the player base fluctuates back and forth monthly, League of Legends has been popular and consistent for more than a decade.
