Valorant mobile has been a hot topic for discussion for over a year now. The discussion started even before the PC version of Valorant was officially launched. The first leak goes back to April of last year. Fast forward to today; other than few more leaks, we don’t really have much to talk about Valorant mobile. But in this post, we will tell you about everything that is out there on the internet about valorant mobile.
Valorant Mobile is real
I have been following the mobile gaming industry for over five years now, and trust me, no big developers announce the game first and then develop it. It’s just the opposite; they develop it first and then announce it few months before the first beta or soft launch to create the hype. Take the example of PUBG Mobile, COD Mobile, Apex Legends Mobile, or any other AAA game, all of these games were in development for multiple years, and all the time we used to hear rumors and leaks about the game, but they were only announced officially just a few months before their first beta. So it’s going to be the same with Valorant Mobile.
Fun Fact: The first leaked image of Valorant Mobile came from a Reddit user who actually got to access the mobile control layout when he was messing up with few things. What is more shocking is that this leak comes from April 2020, which is 2 months before the actual launch of the Valorant PC version.
IGN Confirms that Valorant mobile is in development
ut even if we assume that everything is fake, then what can we actually trust? So IGN, as we all know, is the biggest gaming news and media website in the world, and they have been working in the mobile journalism market since 1996. So quite a trustworthy source, right? In one of the recent articles published on IGN, they have said that their sources at Riot Games have told them that Valorant Mobile is currently in development and will be announced soon.
It seems that Valorant for Android and iOS is indeed in development. Sources at the company tell IGN India that Valorant Mobile as its tentatively named, is on the way with the gaming giant trying to gauge which markets it would work in.IGN INDIA
When will Valorant Mobile be announced?
There is no official information on Valorant Mobile as of now, so it is tough to predict when it will be announced and released. But PlayerIGN, a popular leaker of PUBG, predicted that Valorant Mobile would be announced during E3 2021. This might actually be true because it seems like that the mobile version of Valorant has now been in development for over a year. Now the time for Soft-launch or beta of the game is approaching, so Riot Games can go ahead and announce the game anytime. E3 2021 is scheduled for June this year so keep your eyes open as the good news is just around the corner.
