Valorant’ Is Coming To Mobile
Valorant being a few of the most popular first-person shooter games developed and introduced by Riot games mainly built for Microsoft Windows. The first teaser released by Riot games was under “Project A” in October 2019.
After the release and due to the high demand and traffic towards the game, the Valorant video game began a closed beta period with limited access on 7th April 2020. The game was officially released by Riot games on the 2nd June 2020, while the development of Velorant was started in 2014.
After a long time of humor about this game, Riot Games have officially confirmed that a mobile version of the most played video game, Valorant, is in development and almost ready to be released.
Unfortunately, besides recognizing its existence, the studio didn’t say when it intends to release the game nor offer a reflection on how it will adapt Valorant’s accurate gunplay to all the touch screen devices.
However, Riot games did note that it’s “preparing to expand the franchise” and that the Valorant Mobile application is supposed to be the first step taken for the process.
The announcement of the Valorant Mobile game came precisely one year after this game was newly released on the PC. With great popularity and demand received and over 14 million regular active players around the globe, it is one of the best first-person shooting games ever to be introduced in the gaming industry.
For a free-to-play game like Valorant, that may not appear like a lot of gamers, especially when you compare it against titles like Apex Legends and Call of Duty Warzone, both of which freshly passed the 100 million player breakthrough.
But then Valorant is only usable on PC and a high skill ceiling that can make it frightening for the new players who are thinking of coming and trying Valorant games on their PCs.
A possible comparison is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which recent rumors suggest amassed more than 20 million monthly active members during the pandemic.
Although to honor the achievements that Valorant has gotten and the game’s first anniversary, Riot games will hand out in-game memorial items to players during June.
