Riot X Arcane

Just in case you might have been concerned Riot isn’t doing well, don’t be. As you probably suspected, things are just fine…at least if we’re talking player numbers across the company’s library of games. Today, the Riot Games Twitter account announced that October boasted a grand total of 180 million players for the month. The tweet mentions “helping Runeterra reach new heights”, which may seem to imply that they meant Legends of Runeterra pulled in that many players for the month, but it’s important to remember that Runeterra is the universe the majority of Riot Games’ games take place in.

This news is pretty timely, as it coincides with Riot X Arcane, a “cross-game, cross-platform, cross-world experience” celebrating the launch of the upcoming animated series Arcane on Netflix on November 6 – and all of Riot’s properties in general. Basically, it’s a pretty good time to be Riot. The Riot X Arcane event has something going for players of every game, from League of Legends to Valorant, and includes everything from tournaments to Arcane-themed skins.
