Valorant has been limited to the PC platform for approximately two years after its debut. That could change, as Riot Games is rumoured to be working on a console version of the game in addition to the already confirmed mobile version.
Recently, two unusual job advertisements appeared on the Riot recruitment portal: one in Los Angeles, California, and the other in Bellevue, Washington, both in the United States, both for the position of “Senior Game Designer, Console – Valorant.”
Game is currently unavailable on any PlayStation, Nintendo, or Xbox console. However, based on this development, Riot appears to be attempting to break into the console market.
With the modern generation of consoles and PC players not separated by high barriers, which is accelerated by features such as cross-play, mouse and keyboard support, and a target framerate of 120 FPS (necessary for such a competitive title), bringing one of the PC’s most-played competitive titles to the console would be incredible.
While Valorant was designed for PCs, understanding and developing solutions for the keyboard-mouse control scheme is critical to designing. With the evolution of gaming platforms bringing player bases closer together, a console port could be extremely popular and entertaining.
