Riot Games’ multi-year deal with Spotify inked this week adds yet another exclusive podcast to the online platform’s lineup and gives Riot the chance to capitalize on audio content for the first time in its decade-long esports history. The companies didn’t disclose terms of the deal, but a Riot spokesperson said the “multi-year” agreement includes Spotify helping Riot to produce several podcasts and curate playlists based on Riot’s games.
