Valorant is the name of a 5v5 character based tactical shooter game created by Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends. This one is the first game the developer has developed in the genre and offers players with a lot of unique characters to choose from. It mixes the precision shooting of Counter Strike with the abilities of Overwatch, providing players with 10 unique characters to choose from, each with their own unique abilities and playstyles.
Valorant is designed from the ground up for PC, but Riot Games has expressed interest in bringing the game to the other platforms in the future. The beta version is currently ongoing on PC, with invites steadily being rolled out through Twitch drops, but will the game come to Xbox One and PS4 when it launches this summer?
As stated before, Valorant is only available on PC. The other games of Riot Games are also only on PC, but the developer has recently started to divert some of its resources to the other platforms like mobile devices and consoles. The popular game called League of Legends is coming to mobile and consoles in the form of League of Legends: Wild Rift, and Teamfight Tactics has already made its way to iOS and Android alongside a PC release. When it comes to the game called Valorant, the creator is only focused on the PC version of the game right now, but they have not outright denied the possibility of an Xbox One or PS4 version of the game. Actually, it does not guarantee that the game will eventually land on PS4 and Xbox One, but at least it is a statement which does not officially rule out the move.
Even though Valorant could land on Sony and the current gen consoles of Microsoft, if it were to become available on the other platforms you would expect the PS5 and Xbox Series X to be a part of the plans of Riot Games.
Speaking to the well-known streamer of Twitch called TimTheTatMan, Riot Games lead designed Trevor Romleski stated their focus right now is on PC. They are open to exploring new opportunities for the other platforms, but for the time being, what their current focus is, is on the PC platform. League of Legends has been exclusively available on PC since the first time its release more than a decade ago, and now it is heading to consoles in the near future, so there is still hope for Xbox One and PS4 versions of Valorant.
While Valorant is in beta right now, the game is set to release on PC sometime this summer. It will be completely free to play.
