Mobile devices will soon be able to play Riot’s Valorant tactical shooter. Despite the lack of specifics, Riot has confirmed that the new version of Valorant will be called Valorant Mobile.
The PC version of the game, released last year, has an estimated 14 million monthly players, according to the developer. More than 1 million concurrent viewers tuned in to watch the finals of Valorant’s biggest competitive tournament to date, held in Iceland, on May 31st.
This should not come as a complete shock. Wild Rift, a mobile-focused spinoff of League of Legends, was launched by Riot earlier this year. PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile are two of the most popular shooters in the world, and a smartphone version of Apex Legends is also in the works.
In addition, it appears that Riot plans to expand Valorant in other ways. To avoid spoilers, the developer says it is “getting ready to expand the franchise in order to bring Valorant to more players around the world” in addition to the mobile version. Again, this would be in line with the League of Legends playbook, which has already been applied to everything from comic books to digital card games to a forthcoming Netflix animated series.
