In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to worldwide acclaim. The game has since gone on to become the most played PC game in the world. Whether you're in Ho Chi Minh City, Rio or Moscow, you can find an excited and engaged community of League players. Delivering content to our diverse region while also charting the future of Riot by launching new games in growth markets, is what makes work on the Southeast Asia (SEA) team so dynamic.
