League of Legends Wild Rift Switch hasn't been confirmed yet despite being on the wish lists of many.

With Riot Games' newest offering, League of Legends Wild Rift, now available for players to pre-register for on Google Play, fans of the game are wondering what consoles and devices will support the game.

Although Riot Games has announced that League of Legends Wild Rift will be coming to Android and iOS devices, the company has not yet specified which consoles will be featuring the new MOBA.

Ever since the game's initial reveal in 2019, Riot Games has emphasized that the game will be available for console, even hinting that the design team was looking into ways to add cross-platform play between mobile players and console players.

Riot Games also has current job advertisements looking for an Engineering Manager for its Wild Rift Console Team, which indicates some flexibility in the company's plans for the game's release.

If the game is coming to the Nintendo Switch, chances are it will not be available until after 2021. Riot Games plans to fully release the mobile version of the game in all regions of the world by the end of 2020 before focusing on a console release. This makes sense considering new consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be arriving on the market around the same time.

League of Legends Wild Rift Release Mobile

Players interested in trying the game can currently pre-register on the Google Play store and wait for open beta tests that will most likely occur later this year. Players in China will be the first to receive open beta tests, followed by other regions.

According to early reviews, the game is already going through closed beta tests, with gameplay and graphics being evaluated by major figures in the League of Legends community.

Although no official release date for the open beta has been set, chances are the open beta will occur sometime after June, depending on the success of the closed beta tests.
