Riot Games was founded in 2006 by independent game developers Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill, entrepreneurial gamers who believed in player-focused game development. In 2008 the company announced their highly-acclaimed debut game League of Legends: Clash of Fates which was released in October 2009 as League of Legends (LoL). League of Legends is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, or MOBA, that sought to emulate the success of Defense of the Ancients (DotA). The company obtained initial funding of $7 million from venture capital firms Benchmark and FirstMark in 2008, and another $8 million in 2009 from the same firms with the addition of Chinese tech giant Tencent Holdings. League of Legends was well-received by players worldwide and became extremely popular with over 67 million players per month. The game received numerous awards following its release including placing 15th on USgamer’s Best Games since 2000 list. LoL also has a large competitive scene not only in North America and Europe but in some parts of Asia as well. In 2011 Tencent Holdings bought majority shares of Riot Games in a deal estimated to be worth over $230 million. The company currently operates as a subsidiary of the Chinese tech company and generates an estimated $1.3 billion in annual revenue. Riot Games is currently based in Santa Monica, California with more than 1000 employees across 17 offices worldwide including DotA veterans Steve “Guinsoo” Feak, former lead developer, and Steve “Pendragon” Mescon, founder of the official DotA-Allstars website, as well as a number of former Blizzard Entertainment Employees. The company ranks 21st in Fortune’s 2015 Best Workplace for Millenials list.

Tencent acquired the remaining stake in Riot Games in December, 2015 and Riot Games is now a fully owned subsidiary of the Chinese gaming and technology juggernaut, Tencent.
