League of Legends 2 Will Never Happen
Directly from Riot Games, we have learned that there will never be a League of Legends 2. A sequel will never be on the cards, a company representative told Polygon earlier today.
Unlike other big PC games, Riot is opposed to creating a sequel for their game. MMOs and other PC games tend to come out with sequels and expansions, while Riot continuously updates their game for free.

According to Polygon, the game will continue to provide patches and updates in the place of full-scale sequels, with plans to continue this business strategy over a period of decades.
Despite the game's overwhelming success, the company plans on constantly updating the original League of Legends instead of creating a sequel. One of the most exciting pieces of news recently around the game has been the new updated Summoner's Rift. This is the most commonly used map played in LoL, a 5v5 team battle to destroy the enemy team's Nexus.
Polygon also suggests that while Riot has only published one game, that new IPs may be in the works. While I was at the Game Developer's Conference I met some Rioters from their mobile team. Maybe a new mobile game or LoL app is in the works. Only time will tell!
