Riot Games announced that First Person Shooter (FPS) game VALORANT will get a mobile version soon.
ValorINTEL publicized this on Twitter on the first anniversary of VALORANT last June 2, 2021.
Anna Donlon, VALORANT’s executive producer, said that they wanted to repay the gaming community by making the game a global experience.
“One of our top goals this first year was to earn the trust and respect of the global FPS community, and to prove to them that VALORANT will always uphold the fundamentals of a truly worthwhile competitive tac-shooter,” Donlon said.
“To see our growing player community recognize and appreciate what we’re trying to do with VALORANT is beyond what we could’ve expected and we’re thrilled to soon offer the same competitive VALORANT experience to even more global players.”
This could also mean that having VALORANT on video game consoles like PlayStation and Xbox can be a possibility as well. Donlon, however, said that this type of tactical FPS game is easier to transition to mobile than in console.
Riot Games has also done this recently with League of Legends, which was released on mobile with the title “League of Legends: Wild Rift,” last year.
Other games like Fortnite from Epic Games and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds from PUBG Cooperation produced a mobile version that became a hit for the gaming community of mobile players.
There is no exact date yet when the mobile version of VALORANT will be released, but the executive producer presumed that it will be out in a year or two.
