Riot Games has outlined its intentions for the League of Legends: Wild Rift esports scene for 2023. Continuing its efforts from this year, where the team has looked to begin focussing its efforts on regions and locations where mobile gaming excels, in 2023, it will be focussing even further on Asia, a market that is dubbed as "the biggest and most active mobile esports market in the world."

To this end, there will be a new regional league in the region as of April, which will consist of 12 teams from China and eight teams from other Asian regions, all to make for one cross-regional professional mobile esports league.

The actual season of this league will consist of two splits each year, and this will actually be the only league that Riot officially operates going forward, as other regions will have to rely on third-party events from now on.

"We believe these changes will give the community time and runway to grow organically and establish what role high-level competition will play in their ecosystem," as Riot puts it. "As the Wild Rift esports landscape evolves, we'll be ready to move in lockstep."

There is no exact mention of when this new Asian league will kick off.
