VALORANT Console might be coming to the scene sooner than we expected.
In recent years, one of the most popular first-person tactical shooters has been VALORANT, developed by Riot Games and launched back in June 2020. VALORANT has been making headlines ever since its official reveal.
Unlike most other tactical first-person shooters, VALORANT is a hero-based game. Heroes in VALORANT are called agents, and every agent has their own unique abilities. But what makes this game even more popular is that it is very beginner-friendly. Thus, more new gamers are showing an interest in trying this game.
VALORANT is essentially free-to-play but uses microtransactions for monetization. Currently, the game is only available to play on PC, but we might see a change soon.
The community has been calling for Riot to bring VALORANT to other platforms. Mobile and Console users have been waiting for ages to get an official announcement from Riot about it. To their surprise, popular Valorant leaker @ValorLeaks revealed a console port is in the works.
Riot Games looking to hire a console game developer for VALORANT indicates only one thing. Although nothing is official yet, VALORANT Console might be a future prospect for Riot Games.
On the other hand, many people are speculating how Riot might pull this off since a tactical first-person shooter isn’t meant to be played on a controller.
Even if Riot does launch a VALORANT Console port, it is safe to say that the chances of cross-platform matchmaking are almost negligible. Since VALORANT depends entirely on raw aim, even if controllers players receive help from aim-assist, they mightn’t be allowed to play with PC players to prevent unfair advantages.
