Will there be a console version of the multiplayer shooter Valorant? At least the developers are preparing a port. As can be seen from a recent interview, a corresponding prototype already exists. A final decision for its completion has not yet been made.
The release version of the multiplayer shooter Valorant has recently been available for download on the PC. But what about a potential port for the consoles? Although the responsible development studio Riot Games had previously expressed interest in such an implementation, an official announcement is still pending. At least the team seems to be making the necessary preparations. At least that is the result of a recent interview with the producer Anna Donlon.
"We definitely already have a prototype for it. But there is a way to play and experience this game. We are not entirely sure that it can be fully transferred to consoles. If we think such an experience, then We will definitely be able to deliver these platforms, but we want Valorant to be (buy now) because of a certain gameplay and experience. (…) This is definitely not a 'no'. But it was definitely not our focus from the start. "

Accordingly, Riot Games initially wants to examine more closely whether the elementary game feel of Valorant can be transferred to the consoles without great compromises. In addition, according to Donlon, it should definitely be guaranteed that players will not receive any special advantages on certain platforms. Only when all of these points have been resolved to the satisfaction of the developers will Riot Games begin to port the multiplayer shooter more concretely.
