League of Legends is the most played video game in the world, 32 million players per month
Somehow League of Legends is still flying under a lot of people’s radar despite being one of the most played video games in the world right now. Infact, Riot Games is saying it is the most played video game in the world.
If you go by some statistics they recently released then it’s hard to deny this claim.
There are 70 million registered LoL accounts, and 32 million people play the game every month. Riot Games says this 32 million per month number was determined by adding all of the people who have at least played one game during a month.
Additionally 12 million people play the game every single day. 12 million. They say there is 3 million users playing concurrently.
Honestly I haven’t heard a lot about the game. In passing I’ve heard about it but no one can deny that it is extremely popular.
To put this in perspective, World of Warcraft had a maximum of 12 million monthly players at one time. Call of Duty usually ranks in at about 3-4 million daily players. This is even bigger than those games.
