Kobe will start working on other projects outside of Riot Games ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Sam “Kobe” Hartman-Kenzler, one of the best shoutcasters for League of Legends has announced he will be taking on "additional projects" outside of Riot Games. Over on Twitter, he promises to share more information regarding his new projects soon and changes his name from @RiotKobe to @esportsKobe_

With seven years under his belt working as a North American LCS caster and analyst, Kobe's start in esports was actually as a pro player. A part of Counter Logic Gaming's League of Legends roster, he played as their starting jungler, but his career was short lived. 

Since becoming a shoutcaster, the 33-year old has worked alongside other talent like David “Phreak” Turley and Clayton “CaptainFlowers” Raines. He even has a show in which he and CaptainFlowers talk about different League of Legends topics. Another show Kobe hosts is a League podcast called The Dive. He has shared his expertise and casted at several big League of Legends events like the League World Championship, making him a very popular personality within the North American League scene.
