According to Riot Games senior designer Ed “SapMagic” Altorfer, the League of Legends product in the Auto Chess genre, Teamfight Tactics, is coming soon. Very soon.
In fact, fans will likely be able to play it as soon as June 18 on the PBE, which is tomorrow.
It will be interesting to see how Teamfight Tactics stacks against the other players on the market. Valve’s Underlords is already live in beta for Battlepass owners, while Drodo’s Auto Chess is already out of beta on mobile and coming to the Epic Store soon.
The season of the Auto Chess fever is officially opened, it seems, and it will be an intense race between the developers. There will likely be one definitive winner and it will be up to the publishers to figure out how their product will stand out.
