Is Valorant Night Market Arriving in January 2023?

Riot Games

With the beginning of January right around the corner, it's perhaps no surprise that many players are wondering if the Night Market is coming back to Valorant.

Valorant's Night Market is a semi-regular event, often popping up unexpectedly to give players the chance to nab deals on an exclusive selection of cosmetics. For the avid Valorant player and cosmetics hunter, the Night Market is strictly an event not to be missed.

The last Night Market went live in early December and with 2022 now just about done, many players are likely wondering if we can expect the Night Market to return in January. Here's what you need to know.

Is Valorant Night Market Arriving in January 2023?

Unfortunately, at the time of publication, there have yet to be any leaks or announcements suggesting when exactly the next Valorant Night Market will be arriving.

However, considering that the most recent Night Market will be ending on Jan. 4, 2023, and Episode 5 Act 3 is set to end on Jan. 10, it can all but be expected that the next one won't be until the first or second week of February.

New Night Markets tend to drop between three and five weeks after the start of a new act, either on a Wednesday or a Thursday.

The previous Night Market dates were:

  • Feb. 11, 2021 – Feb. 23, 2021
  • April 8, 2021 – April 20, 2021
  • June 2, 2021 – June 15, 2021
  • July 28, 2021 – Aug. 10, 2021
  • Sept. 29, 2021 – Oct. 12, 2021
  • Dec. 9, 2021 – Dec. 21, 2021
  • Feb. 9, 2022 – Feb. 22, 2022
  • April 6, 2022 – April 19, 2022
  • May 18, 2022 – May 31, 2022
  • July 29, 2022 – Aug. 2, 2022
  • Sept. 28, 2022 – Oct. 11, 2022
  • Dec. 7, 2022 – Jan. 4, 2023

The Kohaku & Matsuba and Crimsonbeast collections will be added to the Night Market's eligible skins pool in time for the next one during Episode 6 Act 1.

The skins eligible to appear are any that are part of a collection that has been released at least two acts prior to the one the Night Market was opened in.

We will update this story once more information on the topic is released, so be sure to check back soon.
