Well known Valorant leak named after Mike recently claimed that the PBE version of patch 6.06 contains a ton of files related to the game’s unannounced mobile port, which could hint at its imminent beta release.
Until Riot games has not yet officially confirmed plans for a mobile version of Valorant, there have been many leaks about this project in the past. Mike even shared a gameplay screenshot from Valorant Mobile that appears to be from an older version of the game.
Given the huge popularity of Valorant on PC at the moment, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the game on more platforms in the future. While Riot Games is still working on bringing Valorant to consoles, it looks like an unannounced mobile port could be coming sooner rather than later.
Riot Games has already seen success with mobile ports of other popular games such as Legends of Runeterra and League of Legends: Wild Rift. However, a competitive shooter can be quite different. If the developer follows a similar approach with Wild Rift, we can expect Valorant Mobile to be released in beta in limited regions some time before the full version.
There aren’t currently any big competitive multiplayer shooters on mobile that can directly compete with Valorant Mobile, though Activision‘s Call of Duty Mobile is quite a popular shooter, it provides a different experience than Valorant. Ubisoft is also working on a mobile version Rainbow Six Siegebut it is not yet fully released on the platform.
When Riot Games launched Wild Rift, the game was missing some champions from the original game, as well as many skins. So, it remains to be seen if this will also be the case with Valorant. The game recently received a new agent known as Gekko on PC, who is a new initiator with some unique abilities.
By the end of 2023, Valorant will receive two more agents, one of which will be Sentinel. Riot Games also plans to complete Premier Mode in 2023, a new competitive game mode that will be exclusive to users playing in full 5-stack squads. Premier will allow players to participate in online tournaments similar to an eSports environment.
