League of Legends fans might be preparing for the end of the year, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared for the future. Riot Games has already released League’s new patch schedule for 2022 and it should look relatively familiar to experienced players.
Like always, most patches are set to drop on Wednesdays, with a handful of patches dropping on a Thursday throughout the year. There are 23 patches set to release next year, but that doesn’t account for any B-patches that could drop in response to specific champions and bugs that need adjusting or addressing. These dates are subject to change for numerous reasons, but just in case you aren’t sure, you can check out Riot’s official developer Twitter account for any news.
Here’s the full League patch schedule, starting from Jan. 5 to Dec. 7.
