Riot is prepping to make a grand entry in the Indian Mobile Gaming Market, reveals their latest Job Listing: Riot Games have come up with an important job listing in India that instantly became the talk of the town. The job description of the Country Manager role has confirmed that the company is specifically focusing on the “Mobile Games Market” of India. This definitely bodes well for the Indian gaming community as the gaming giant must have big plans ahead for India, especially when mobile gaming has shown such potential over the recent few years.
While PC gaming is gradually gaining pace, mobile gaming has exploded in India with the help of cheap internet & budget handsets. Recognizing the growth opportunities, casual gamers have also started investing a huge chunk of money for better gaming experiences. Hustling towards becoming a billion-dollar industry, the market has allured prominent video game companies to come forward & invest in mobile gaming. Now Riot also wants a fair share of this lucrative pie.
Riot preparing for the imminent release of Wild Rift and VALORANT Mobile? Riot Games’ plans for India’s Mobile Gaming Market
Riot has already launched three mobile games in the market named League of Legends: Wild Rift, Teamfight Tactics, and Legends of Runeterra. While the latter two titles are playable in India, Riot has not introduced Wild Rift to the Indian players yet. However, considering India’s mad love for FPS games, VALORANT Mobile is going to be a game-changer when the 5v5 tactical shooter will be released for the mobile audience.
With this job listing, seems like extensive preparations are underway before Riot puts their aces on the table. As both the titles, League of Legends and Valorant, have already become Esports sensations in the PC gaming scenario, Riot plans to garner the same level of attention from the mobile community as well.
