Riot is Ready to Bring Valorant on PS5 in 2024?
Valorant PS5 Release – Is it Happening in 2024?
Sony is tight-lipped about its PS5 Pro consoles and perhaps they will arrive with Valorant on PS5 Pro. Its not confirmed by any means, but the playerbase has been hoping for a console release of the game since its initial release.
Everything We Know So Far About Valorant on PS5
Riot listed a number of jobs for console tech on its website in early November 2022. Among the listings, the requirement for console tech experts struck the attention of data miners.
The duties in the listings required applicants to possess the ability to ship games from different platforms like the Unreal Engine.
At the same time, it should also be learned that these listings arrived before the official leaks of Valorant on Mobile.
The list only goes far as stating three positions for the following:
- Staff Software Engineer – Console Tech
- Software Engineer III – Console Tech
- Staff Software Engineer – Console UI
Based on this data, it appeared Riot may soon bring Valorant on PS5 and PS4 in 2023. However, it unfortunately it didn’t happen while the Xbox game pass is already here!
More to be Revealed
Although previously the Riot team has openly dismissed the rumors of a console release, there are developments ongoing for different platforms. For instance, Valorant Mobile release is almost official, based on the leaks online. So its safe to believe Riot is working to bring the game to new platforms in time.
“We are continuing our work on bringing Valorant to new platforms, it’s going slower than we’d hoped, probably slower than you’d hoped, but we want to get it right“Anna Donlon, Executive Producer
However, their efforts to expand their playerbase is not at all by deviating their attention from the PC community that has shown much love to the game since its release. While some players are excited to get Valorant crossplay feature, the devs are focusing on maintaining the true VALORANT experience for both its PC and mobile players.
