Wondering when Valorant mobile comes out? Here’s what you need to know.
Valorant will always play best on PC, but Riot Games is intent on opening the game up to a wider audience with a handheld spin-off. If you’re wondering when Valorant mobile comes out, here’s everything there is to know so far.
When Valorant Mobile is Coming Out
Valorant mobile was first announced over a year ago as Riot Games celebrated a successful first year of the game with a string of announcements about its overall player base and interest in continuing support of the title. But there’s actually been precious few details released ever since about when the mobile port is due to launch. There is no official information regarding a release date as yet, so we simply don’t know when Valorant is coming out.
In fact, the only really substantial evidence we have that the game is still under development is a host of leaked screenshots from an alpha/beta test seemingly held in China. You can see two of those both above and below.
The images were originally shared by @DannyINTEL on Twitter, with images showcasing the game running on a mobile device, giving us our first look at the control layout.
Of course, the big question is how a tactical shooter such as Valorant, which puts a huge emphasis on recoil control and precision shooting, could possibly work on a touch screen. Similar games, like Counter-Strike, have failed to work on console gamepads in years gone by, let alone a touch screen. Presumably, there will be some sort of aim assist, and we couldn’t imagine any sort of crossplay between PC and mobile.
We’ll just have to wait and see. Until then, that’s everything there is to know about when Valorant mobile comes out. Expect Twinfinite to keep you informed as and when we hear more. You can find further related content below in the meantime, or you could read more about the silly Valorant mobile clone called Project M, which launched last year.
