VALORANT’s latest patch 1.10 featuring the new map “Icebox” has been officially released and it confirms the existence of a possible mobile port of the game.
There were already some rumors floating around the internet of a mysterious mobile port of VALORANT. Although since it was all a rumor most of the fans quickly dismissed such a possibility. Since VALORANT was targeted towards the PC enthusiast crowd, it seemed quite unlikely that Riot Games would introduce a mobile version of the game anytime soon.
However, as it turns out, the latest patch 1.10 contains some rather interesting settings. According to the leaks, a settings panel for the mobile version of the game has been found in the game files. All the settings in there align with the current UI trend in mobile FPS games.

Furthermore, it also contains settings from “aim acceleration” for touch devices to the “vibration feedback” that can only be possible on mobile devices. Exactly how aim assists in VALORANT will work is still under debate.
However, as this is still a leak and in no way an official confirmation from Riot Games, take all of these leaks with a grain of salt. Just because it is in the game files doesn’t mean it is confirmed. Although all the rumors are now lining up quite nicely after the new 1.10 patch went live.

It seems pretty obvious why Riot chose to make a mobile port of their first FPS game. Right now, mobile gaming is a huge industry. And Riot has already brought their Flagship title League of Legends to the mobile platform. So, it makes a lot of sense for Riot Games to enter the highly competitive mobile FPS games market.
