‘TFT 2.0’ teased by Riot with big announcements due in early 2022, patch note days also revealed for the year ahead

Riot Games has talked up a bright future for its autobattler game, Teamfight Tactics (TFT), having spoken about a concept of ‘TFT 2.0’.

While this isn’t a direct sequel as such, it’s the idea that TFT has developed greatly since its launch in 2019, and will continue to evolve in 2022, making it a 2.0 version of the game.

Speaking in a TFT 2021 Year in Review discussion video, Riot Mortdog said, as reported by Dexerto’s Andrew Amos: “I remember Meddler [VP of game and production direction for League of Legends and TFT] was like, “we need to find TFT 2.0”, and in a lot of ways, I think this year got us in that direction, really heavily.

“There’s gonna be some announcements in early 2022 that will show what we’re talking about.”

“It feels like not just from the game side, where we found our stride, but from the team side – some of the old guard who’ve been on the team for a long time have moved on, and the team is growing.

“So it feels like in a way the team is at a 2.0 also. We have more people, we have a leadership team, we have new artists, designers and engineers etc. It feels like 2022 will just keep levelling up.

“I sit and listen all day to player complaints… there’s so much opportunity for growth, we’re at a high ceiling but we can keep going bigger and that’s got me excited. We’re well equipped to deliver even more in 2022. “

Mort also revealed the TFT patch days for 2022 in the following tweet:

TFT was first announced in 2019 when it arrived on PC, and TFT hit mobiles in early 2020.

Two months ago, Riot unveiled a new TFT Rising Legends esports circuit for EMEA. Also in October, TFT Set 6 Gizmos & Gadgets key info was revealed, including the addition of Chibi Champions Little Legends a ‘Double Up’ duos mode, items, team comps and traits including Mutants.

And last month, Riot announced Arcane character Silco is being added as a character in Teamfight Tactics, with other characters “from outside of Runeterra” open to join the game in the future.
