A new leak has revealed the release dates of every Act in the upcoming Episode 3 of VALORANT.
In VALORANT, instead of a more typical seasonal structure, Riot opted for an Episode and Act structure where each new Episode would have 3 Acts. In each Act, Riot usually releases a new battle pass that players can purchase to customize their play sessions in the game.
Since we are now at the later stages of Episode 2, Riot has already started to tease us with what they have planned for Episode 3. According to Riot, massive meta-changing updates to both agents and weapons are coming with the next Episode of VALORANT.
For example, Riot is apparently planning on reducing the prices of all the weapons in VALORANT for Episode 3. This will be a major shift to how players approach the game in early rounds.
Episode 3 Starting and Ending Dates
June 22 – January 11
Episode 3 Act 1 Starting and Ending Dates:
June 22 – August 24
Episode 3 Act 2 Starting and Ending Dates:

Based on the leaks, the next Episode will start on June 22th, 2021, and will end on January 11th, 2022. In the whole episode, there will be three major parts called Acts. Each Act should introduce new battle pass, agents, and maps.
From what we know so far, Riot intends to introduce 6 agents per year. And they are already working on more maps. Keep your eyes peeled for more VALORANT Episode 3 content.
