At the beginning of the year, League of Legends and Riot Games announced The Ruined King Viego was coming to the game. With his announcement, they also revealed that the next three champions to come in 2021 would all revolved around him. The first one was Gwen, The Hallow Seemstress. Then the next two to come out are a “Gloomy Yordle” and a mid lane marksman. Although the Yordle was supposed to come first, they moved them back for the marksmen which will be Akshan. Now the question becomes, what is the Akshan release date?

Gwen has been out for a while and even though the Dr. Mundo rework was also released recently, for Riot to keep up with the six champions every year, they are going to have to get to work. So far this year they have released just Gwen and Viego as reworked champions do no count. That means that there are still four champions left to come out over the next six months with the Yordle and Akshan being the only ones who have been revealed so far.
From the sounds of it, Patch 11.13 is going to be a big one. The date for that patch is June 23. If anything, that would be when Akshan would hit the PBE due to the fact that he is not on the PBE now.
The most likely release dates come after that with Patch 11.14 or Patch 11.15. The release date for Akshan would be either be July 8 or July 22 should they come out on either of those patches.
With Akshan officially announced, he will be heading to Summoners Rift with Patch 11.15 on July 22.
