27 Million People Now Play League of Legends Daily

World of what?

Riot Games revealed today that League of Legends now has more than 27 million gamers playing League of Legends on a daily basis. That’s more than double than the estimated 12 million in late 2012. 7.5 million people are playing concurrently at peak, which is up from the 5 million last reported in March.

So why so successful? League of Legends is free to play, which means the only real reason to quit playing is fatigue of the game itself. Furthermore, the game is free in China where it has become a smashing success, contributing to the skyrocketing numbers.

It seems like just yesterday that World of Warcraft was dominating the charts and just a day before that Final Fantasy XI was a thing. Time flies when you’re having…fun?
