Neeko is one of the champions promised a mid-scope update by Riot Games. In League of Legends Patch 12.19 Riot revealed Syndra's mid-scope update and earlier this year Olaf, Swain and Sivir have become top-tier picks thanks to the reworked kits.
During the August Champion Roadmap video we were promised two more champion mid-scope updates. One of them was Syndra, who just got her update, as well as Neeko, whom we're still waiting on. But it seems that those few Neeko mains out there will have to be a but more patient.
Neeko Mid-Scope Update Needs Time to Ripen
With Syndra's mid-scope update coming a few months after the announcement, some fans got their hopes up thinking that Neeko was quick to follow. This caused fans to flock to Twitter to ask developer 'Phlox' about the status of Neeko and her mid-scope update.
On October 11, 2022 the developer explained that "she's still a little while out since the strongest tomatoes take the longest to ripen." The team working on her mid-scope update is looking to keep her essence the same, basically just making her more fun to play for Neeko mains. "[We want to] make Neeko as Neeko as possible and even more fun for Neeko fans."
We're likely going to be getting a new top lane champion soon, with the reveal of the collaboration between Lil Nas X and Riot Games, so we will have to wait until the release of the new top lane champion, K'Sante, before we can get our hands on Neeko and her mid-scope update.
More Champions Possibly on the List of Mid-Scope Updates
A lot of fans have also asked for Rell to be a champion Riot will take a look at in the future as well. She's one of the most unpopular champions in all of League of Legends. She fell off in popularity right after her release in 2020 already and has rarely seen any time on the rift since then.

Therefore, some fans think that Riot could look over her abilities to make her better and improve her for the next little while. But this is just speculation. No other champion other than Neeko has been confirmed by Riot to receive a mid-scope update.
