League of Legends is mainly known for its primary map, Summoner’s Rift. Beyond the Rift, though, Riot Games has released plenty of alternate maps for players throughout the years. Four maps have been a part of the game’s permanent rotation throughout League’s history, although Riot removed two of them from the game.
There are no ongoing discussions to add any new permanent maps to League of Legends. Riot has experimented with adding new maps to the game on occasion, but they very rarely become a permanent part of the mix.
