Riot Games has a number of games that range from first-person shooters to MMOs and are accessible on both PC and mobile, and VALORANT is now on its way to becoming the upcoming console release.
Since its release in 2020, VALORANT has only been available on PC. Keep your cool, everyone. Finally, it’s happening. It is getting onto consoles. Riot Games has a number of games that range from first-person shooters to MMOs and are accessible on both PC and mobile, and VALORANT is now on its way to becoming the upcoming console release. Although no one can say for sure whether Xbox or PlayStation exclusivity will ever exist, it is safe to assume that it will. For its console teams, Riot has been searching the world for talent. On November 23, 2022, a new job posting made it clear that Riot was looking for someone to “help bring console game products to market.”
The long-awaited VALORANT console release has not yet been assigned a date. So, regrettably, we’ll have to wait to hear any further updates.It was made known that Riot would be working with the Xbox Game Pass to unlock exclusive benefits for players at last year’s Xbox showcase. This entails obtaining all of the champions in League of Legends, all of the card packs in Legends of Runeterra, and all of the agents in VALORANT.

Along with working with Microsoft and Xbox, Riot also added two new icons to the game for PlayStation and Xbox, according to a VALORANT leaker on Twitter. These were discovered in the game’s files after Patch 5.03 was made available. Although Riot hasn’t made any official statements about VALORANT’s future platforms, there have been numerous leaks that indicate it might be coming to consoles soon.
Since its release, VALORANT has drawn comparisons to other first-person shooter games like Counter-Strike and Overwatch due to the combination of gunplay and skills. In contrast to Counter-Strike, which is also exclusively PC-based, Overwatch has always been accessible on a variety of devices. On platforms like Xbox, the FPS game Overwatch has enjoyed success. This success gives hope that VALORANT will as well.
It is not yet known if Riot Games will release Valorant for consoles any time soon. A console port for Valorant was in development, but Anna Donlon, the game’s executive producer, said it wasn’t a top priority at the time in an interview with GameSpot in 2020. The tactical shooter’s developers have previously discussed investigating a console port, demonstrating the company’s interest in bringing the game to consoles. The exact timeframe for this is still unknown.
We’ll wait impatiently until it’s revealed because we know it’s coming. Given that, we can only guess when VALORANT will be made available on Xbox or PlayStation. It might occur this year or the following. We’ll keep you informed when any new details become available for the time being. Valorant was recently added to the Xbox Game Pass, but it is still unclear whether this signifies an impending console release. Data miners found Xbox and PlayStation-related files in the game file in August 2022, indicating the possibility of a console port. It has been challenging for the community to speculative, though, due to the absence of any official communication from Riot Games.
