The official launch date of the first patch for the 2022 season.
As every year, League of Legends players in the preseason wonder how long the forced break will be for testing new content. It was the same this year, and now Riot has decided to inform the community about the date of the first patch.
With it, as was the case in previous years, the next season of players in the ranked queue may begin.
First patch and new season
Riot Games publishes a patch schedule for specific days at the beginning of each year, which usually does not change. Previous seasons start in January and end in early December. With the first patch in the game, a new season was starting, and this may well be the case here.
Now one of Riot’s employees has announced the date of the first update in 2022.
It will be the first Wednesday on January 5, 2022. This means that at night, the official League of Legends servers will receive a patch that starts a new period of players’ struggle.
