Valorant coming to consoles, like Xbox and Playstation, has been rumored and mild confirmed for months as Riot Games hinted at expanding the FPS title to a wider audience. Valorant is one of the few titles Riot Games has in its library that could possibly get a console port. League of Legends, its other flagship game, has too many inputs to play with a controller.

Riot Games has mobile games in its arsenal with Wild Rift, Teamfight Tactics, and Legends of Runeterra all having mobile capabilities.

Valorant may be coming to Xbox and PlayStation in the future.

Valorant wouldn’t be the first tactical shooter with a significant esports push to receive a console release. Both CS:GO and Rainbow: Six Siege have Xbox and Playstation ports.

When Valorant hits consoles, it will be Riot Games’ first title to have a release outside of mobile and PC. The developer hasn’t waded into console waters in its more than 10 years as a company.

No timeline has been given by Riot for the console release of the FPS title, or if the game will come to other mainstream consoles like Switch.
