Reuters is reporting via multiple sources that U.S.-based developer Riot Games (which has been under the spotlight recently for ignominious reasons) is working with its Chinese owners Tencent on a mobile version of its popular MOBA League of Legends.

It’s currently unknown when the title will be ready for release.
