Valorant has swiftly become one of the most popular first-person shooter games on the market, with over 12 million active players. However, only PC gamers have been able to experience Valorant to its fullest extent. The game is still a big success, and Riot, the game's developer has already revealed plans to bring Valorant to mobile devices. Console-only users have been curious if the game will release on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. According to recent hints, however, that may be about to change. 


A console version of Valorant, which Riot had previously indicated it was “prototyping,” has not been announced. Riot's job advertisements for the console version of Valorant indicate that development is on track. Therefore, it's probable that the studio has big plans to release the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. 


Multiple Senior Game Designers, as well as a Software Engineering Manager, are among the job openings on Riot Games' website. The Software Engineering Manager is in charge of turning Valorant's development team into a “multi-platform studio.” The position's first job is to “deliver the Valorant experience to consoles.” It doesn't get any more straightforward than that. Developing Valorant for consoles, on the other hand, is fundamentally distinct from the actual release of the game.

Additionally, one dataminer discovered references to PSN and Xbox Live in the game's files.  According to Valorant leakers Shiina, the developers added the strings to Valorant's files for “backend purposes.” implying that Riot is still in the testing phase. The strings read, “Connection to ‘PSN' has been lost,” and “Connection to Xbox LIVE has been lost.”  It's the first sign that Riot has added official support for PlayStation and Xbox consoles to Valorant's live version.  Although it is a minor step toward complete console support for Valorant, it is a significant step forward.

According to the files and job profiles, Riot appears to be actively working on Valorant for consoles after moving past the prototyping stage. However, this does not imply that the project is nearing completion. One of the most pressing concerns right now is when Valorant will be released on these consoles.
