Riot Games has announced the League of Legends 2015 World Championship will take place in Europe this October.

The developer announced the Championship would return to Europe this morning, and confirmed the Worlds 2015 Group Stage, Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Final showdown will be held in various cities in Europe.

“Our goal is to bring live esports action to a broad base of fans across Europe and to provide an exciting and diverse backdrop for fans watching at home,” said the firm.

“Last year’s multi-city journey to Worlds was a fast-paced and exhilarating ride – we learned a ton about the kind of experience we want to offer to competing pros, fans in the stadiums, and viewers at home.

“We’re ready for an action-packed month in Europe.”

Venues, timing, format, and other information will be announced at a later date.
