We’re taking the week of July 4th off to rest, recharge, and stretch our wrists. This will be our fourth year taking a summer break, so we’re getting the drill down now. 

Patch timelines may shift to accommodate the change, and, if so, individual game teams will send out the specifics. In the meantime, some teams like our live operations, anti-cheat, and security teams will be staggering their breaks to make sure everything keeps running smoothly throughout the break. 

Knowing Rioters, you’ll probably see more of us spending this week on the Rift, forcing Deadlock into our comps, ambushing opponents with the huntress, and reforging Runeterra with our favorite Legends.

To learn more about benefits like our mid-year break, check out our comprehensive benefits page to see everything we offer to Rioters. And if you want to take your own break next summer, take a look at our open positions across the company. We just won’t be getting back to you next week.
