Valorant Patch 1.08, set to release Sept. 15, has been delayed to Sept. 16 at 12 p.m. ET. Riot Games shared on Twitter that it did not believe the patch was quite ready yet and needed the extra time. As previous patches have occasionally brought some pretty serious glitches, it's probably for the best that the team takes the extra time to work things out.

The patch will begin roll out in the Americans and then continue over to other regions. It's unknown what changes we'll see to the game but if it follows the pattern of the last patch we are likely to see some nerfs to Sage and possibly some buffs to Viper.

Riot Games also said in the notes for the last patch that there were more plans for Breach so it's likely that we see some changes to his kit as well. We might also see some conservative changes to Raze, given her reputation among the community.

Some fans have also been requesting changes to the Judge and Guardian, namely some damage reduction for the Judge and some more accuracy for the Guardian. Fans hope Riot Games stays somewhat conservative with nerfs this patch regarding Sage, given the amount she was nerfed last patch.
