Valorant Console Release Teased by New Job Listing

A new job description from Riot Games appears to have hinted at the upcoming release of a Valorant console version.

Rumors of a console port for Valorant have been floating around for some time. Riot Games has previously said that they were interested in bringing the online game to console, though official details have never been announced.

It looks as though that could be set to change, as a recent job description has hinted that Riot's development of a PlayStation and Xbox version could soon be underway.

Valorant was released back in 2020 and has since only been available on PC. Many of the game's competitor hero shooters, such as Overwatch and Apex Legends, have long had console versions. Riot Games' primary focus, however, has traditionally been PC gaming, alongside mobile projects.

Riot Games recently posted a vacancy for a Senior Game Designer, Console on Valorant. The description, amongst other responsibilities, detailed how the successful applicant will "design and refine features, modes, and systems to help bring console game products to market."

The listing does not explicitly say that Riot will be bringing Valorant to consoles, but its hard to read into it any other way. It's likely, then, that players can expect to hear news about the upcoming project in the near future, though its unlikely we'll see the port come to fruition for some time.
