League of Legends Updated in Steam Registry; No Plans for Steam Launch

Recent updates to League of Legends entries in Steam’s CDR spread rumors that the game was coming to Steam — this is not the case, Riot has clarified.

Dataminers uncovered a ‘lol.launcher.exe’ alongside listings for the game in French, German and Spanish languages, but this entry has apparently existed since 2009 when League of Legends’ digital collector’s edition could be purchased through Steam and other digital distribution platforms.

Riot commented:

“For a brief period of time after League of Legends launched in 2009, players could purchase a digital collectors edition of the game. This was distributed through a variety of channels (Steam included) via our European partners. We ended those distribution arrangements in 2010, but a small number of players still have this version of the game in their inventories, so that’s why it occasionally pops up. There are no plans to change our current distribution model of providing League of Legends direct via signup.leagueoflegends.com.”
