Valorant Closed Beta Breaks Yet Another Twitch Record

Fresh off reaching a whopping 1.7 million peak concurrent viewers on Twitch last week, Riot Game’s Valorant has managed to break yet another record on the streaming site. With over 34 million hours watched, the game has broken Twitch’s single-day hours watched record in a single game category within its first few hours.

This is an impressive achievement for the multiplayer shooter game, especially considering that it’s still in Closed Beta as of right now.

Riot Games’ Valorant Executive Producer Anna Donlon said:

“Our hearts, inboxes, and social media DMs are filled to the brim with all of the enthusiasm for the Valorant Closed Beta.

At this moment we are laser-focused on delivering a truly global experience for competitive tac-shooter fans, and we’re already learning many lessons.

This is just the beginning of our journey with players, and as we roll out our server infrastructure in these tumultuous times, we’re looking forward to inviting more Valorant players from around the world into this digital community.”

Valorant is slated to officially launch sometime in summer 2020. However, the Closed Beta for the game has thus far been limited to the United States, Europe, Canada, Russia, Turkey, and CIS countries.

In a statement to Kakuchopurei, Riot Games said that the game’s server infrastructure is still being developed, which is why other regions like Southeast Asia (Malaysia, Singapore, etc.) and Oceania (Australia) have yet to receive Closed Beta access at the time of writing.

While Riot Games has said that they plan to roll out to more regions, it’s unclear when that will be, considering that the world is currently facing the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
