League of Legends
developer Riot Games is solidifying its East Coast eSports operations with a new office in New York City.
As reported in the New York Times
, Riot has signed a lease for some 5,600 square feet of office space in NYC. The office will serve as a more permanent base of operations for Riot's New York-based eSports arm, a Riot spokesperson explained.
"We've already got a handful of people in NYC supporting eSports broadcasting and content," the spokesperson told Gamasutra. "This office is going to be a more permanent space for that team to continue to do their eSports thing."
