League of Legends developer Riot Games now owned by Chinese firm - BBC News
League of Legends developer Riot Games is now owned 100% by Chinese firm Tencent. The company made the announcement in a blogpost about changes the way staff are compensated. It is not clear whether the sale will mean changes to how the popular League of Legends (LoL) game is run.
We all know that China owned the majority of Riot Games but I remember Ryze saying in a speech that he would never be selling any more of the company.
Seeing as Tencent now owns 100% of Riot Games, how much control do they actually have over the game?
