League of Legends News - Riot Raked in $1.6 Billion in 2015

Posted by Suzie Ford on Jan 27, 2016  | Comments

According to The Daily Dot, Riot Games raked in $1.6 billion dollars last year alone thanks to League of Legends. The dollar figure came via a SuperData Research report that combines digital sales data from publisher, developers and payment providers and pairs it with "qualitative consumer insight".

By comparison, Valve's Dota 2 earned $238 million, certainly nothing to sneeze at, but a distant second to LoL in the MOBA genre. Other games outside the battle arena game type where LoL is king included:

  • CrossFire: $1.1B
  • Dungeon Fighter Online: $1.0B
  • World of Warcraft: $814M
  • World of Tanks: $446M
  • Lineage I: $339M
  • Maplestory: $253M
  • DOTA 2: $238M
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive: $221M
  • Grand Theft Auto V: $205M
