Valorant had previously posted a cinematic named Year 1 Anthem and shrewdly teased VALORANT Deadeye. Although the agent name is not confirmed Riot talks about New Valorant Agent.
Riot talks about New Valorant Agent, Agent 17
In a recent “State of the Agent” blog, character producer John Goscicki has revealed that the next Valorant agent will be a Sentinel.
“We took a step back and thought about different ways to provide another Sentinel to the roster. We won’t reveal much more, just know that once you achieve that dream moment, it will be Magnifique!” character producer John Goscicki said.
Riot made it clear that the new agent will be a Sentinel-class. This agent can potentially take over the Operator role from Jett. For now, Jett is extremely popular for her dominance with the Operator, this agent can finally change that.
Previously, it was believed that Agent 17 will be a counterpart of Sova. Valorant had dropped a flashy cinematic in honor of Valorant’s one-year completion, as well as a hype element for Episode 3, which has seen its first light yesterday. Yes yes, first light. Valorant has been rooting the long-planned Lore theories since the Duality video teased during VCT and has not looked back. Since the first time we saw the cinematic for a Mirror World, valorant has gone out of its way to implant the Mirror Verse theory in every way possible.
