Riot Games, the League of Legends, and Valorant studio have recently published new job offers on their official website, dedicated to the online shooter. One of these is reserved for a “Senior Game Designer of Valorant for consoles,” who apparently should be in charge of “modifying some mechanics and systems to help make a console game to be launched on the market,” a description that suggests potential arrival of the title on PlayStation and Xbox.
Valorant is currently available exclusively on PC, and two years after launch, it still records excellent numbers. During the first year of its life, Riot Games had declared that it was working on the prototype of a console version but has never published any updates about it. The new job offers suggest that development is progressing well, and the game may land on PlayStation, Xbox, and maybe even Nintendo Switch before the end of the year.
