Since You Probably Don't Have Enough Launchers, Riot Is Releasing One For All Their Titles

Because I am sure you wanted yet another client launcher on your PC.

Need another game launcher? Riot Games sure hopes so as on the 20th of this month they'll start rolling out the "Riot Client," a single launcher for all Riot titles including League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra, Valorant, and more.

While the rollout begins on the 20th, it'll take until October 4th for all users to actually have the tool as Riot will be testing stability along the way.

In addition to getting all of their products in front of your face for your consideration, Riot Games says the new launcher will also offer individual news, update, and information pages for each and every title. That said, if you really want to just use your old individual icons to launch games, Riot says you'll still be able to do that if you so desire.

For once i wouldn't call it much of an Issue, Riot Games was never on any launcher and all their games required a new standalone launcher, if they unify them i would the players only win, sure would a steam version or god forbid a Galaxy 2.0 release make it even better but eh, we can't have it all.

Look, these launchers were the norm when PC gaming industry started,.i
ts only because of STEAM's PC game Monopoly during their initial uprising that which has recently in the years gone caused the separation to keep moving.
No one wants monopoly's , dictators whatever..

. As honestly who like a monpoly. And back when PC were new it was the norm for every game to have its own launcher so nothing new just awaken the zoomers to it .lol
