List of all League of Legends champions by release date

Riot Games’ League of Legends started off with only 20 champions when it launched on October 27, 2009. As the game gained popularity so quickly that even die-hard Dota 2 fans transferred over, League of Legends has a strong lineup of champions with unique abilities and traits for all kinds of players.

Riot Games expanded the League of Legends universe by producing their own animated television series on Netflix titled Arcane and even launched a mobile version titled League of Legends: Wild Rift, it has never been a better day to become a League of Legends player.

How Many League of Legends Champions Are There?

As of this writing, there are 157 champions with Vex the Gloomist as the recently added champion on September 23, 2021.

Just about 12 years after, the list of League of Legends champions has massively expanded from the initial 20 champions in 2009, making it one of the biggest lineup of playable characters in a game surpassing Dota 2’s 122 number of playable heroes.

When will the next League of Legends Champion release?

Players should expect the next champion to be added to League of Legends in 2022. As teased by Riot Games, the next champion will be a jungler.

Our next update will be at the start of next year where we’ll have a lot to share, including more details on the new villainous support, the next VGU planned after Udyr, as well as an overwhelming new jungler that should fill a void in all your hearts.” according to an update from the Lead Producer of League of Legends, Ryan Mireles.

The launch of Vex, the recently added champion last September, was apparently delayed which caused Riot Games to push the release of the new champion sometime around 2022.
