The auto battler genre was one of the most interesting things to come out of gaming this year. With titles such as Teamfight Tactics, Hearthstone Battlegrounds, and the original DOTA Auto Chess, it’s no surprise that it’s made its mark on gaming history. However, with any gaming genre, innovation helps push the genre further.



And Saint Nick delivered the news.



Okay, so Santa isn’t real. However, the lead developer for Teamfight Tactics, Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer, had a live stream where he played games with viewers, had a giveaway and answered questions about the game, all while masquerading as the jolly white-bearded fellow, Santa Claus. One question he was asked revolved around the release date for TFT on mobile. He announced that it would occur before May 31st of the new year. But that’s all he was willing to share.

The game will be available on both Android and Apple devices. You can pre-register here.
