Valorant Ranked mode is set to be released next week following the announcement by its game director Joe Ziegler on Twitter.

Ranked mode was removed from the game with the game's release on June 2. Many players were wondering when it would make its comeback. Riot Game's new FPS game has performed well since it's beta release and is the eighth most popular title on Twitch right now.

Here is everything we know about Valorant Ranked mode:

Valorant Ranked Mode Start Date

Valorant's game director, Joe Ziegler released some big new yesterday about the game. Ziegler announced in a tweet that next week could see the release of Ranked mode.

Ziegler's tweet reads "To answer the biggest question: rated (competitive mode) will likely be out some time next week."

Ziegler confirms what many have been hoping for, a competitive mode. He states that the delay with ranked mode was to do with the preparations. In a separate tweet, Ziegler also confirms the fix for the run/walk toggle that will also come out in the next release.

His tweet has 16,000 retweets and 7,600 likes already. Of the 357 comments so far, many are excited with the news. A Valorant Leaks and Updates Twitter page commented, "Finally! We been eager for this, thank you." Twitch Streamer T1 Sonii commented that they would be fueled up with caffeine on day one and play Valorant till their eyes bleed. This was accompanied with a gif of the Legendary Super Saiyan Broly powering up.

Fans and players are hoping ranked mode will be just as good as the closed beta and the full release so far. With the time and care being put into the mode instead of its being released, many don't believe it to be a failure.
