Valorant Mobile Confirmed By Riot Games

As a special surprise for Valorant’s one-year anniversary, Riot has announced that a mobile version of its multiplayer tactical FPS game will be coming. However, the announcement doesn’t include any details about Valorant Mobile.

Speaking with Polygon, Valorant executive producer Anna Donlon explained that they initially considered making Valorant Mobile with a checklist of questions about what was core to Valorant and whether or not a mobile version of the PC game would even be possible to pull off. This is so much so that if any of the items on the checklist couldn’t be done, Riot Games wouldn’t even continue developing the project

According to Donlon, Valorant Mobile will be a unique mobile experience, and it won’t affect the existing PC version of the game.

“We didn’t start out with ‘We’re making Valorant on mobile,’ we started out with ‘Can we make Valorant on mobile?’ with a lot of skepticism.

For us, whatever you get out of playing on PC, you should get out of playing Valorant on mobile. But we have to recognize that the mobile player need is different.

The same way that we’re not going to deliver a subpar mobile experience for mobile players, we’re not going to compromise the PC experience either.

We’re not trying to convert Valorant PC players into Valorant Mobile players or vice versa.

We’re absolutely just as committed to keeping the PC experience at the quality level it is or higher, and we’re not going to compromise it in order to address the mobile market.”

She also clarified that Riot Games currently has no plans for cross-play between the two versions of the game. They are also considering a console version of Valorant, but it’s not confirmed as of yet.

She added:

“Oddly enough, I actually do think the transition to mobile has been slightly easier for us.

Console’s obvious for FPS, right?

But this type of game, a tactical shooter, on console is not easy.

It’s not easy to have that level of competitive integrity on a platform where the controller is fighting you for that.

And we just didn’t want it.

So we found it took to mobile quicker and it took to mobile easier.”

There is no release date or window for Valorant Mobile as of yet, but Donlon teases that something could be coming in year two of Valorant.
