Valorant, Riot Games’ tactical shooter that has taken the world by the storm in early 2020, is officially getting a mobile version. Valorant Mobile has been quietly confirmed by developers in 2021, but not much has been said about the game since. Much of the information we currently know about the game is coming from various leaks and data mining. Here’s when is Valorant coming out, as well as some other bits of information.
When is Valorant Mobile Coming Out?
At the time of writing, Riot hasn’t revealed the release date for Valorant Mobile. While Riot confirmed the existence of the mobile port, that’s about everything they have ever said about the game. However, recent leaks shared by Danny INTEL, a reputable Valorant mobile gaming insider, have shed more light on the game.
It seems that the Valorant Mobile beta kicked off in China on April 7th, where players are among the first to have an opportunity to try the game. Danny has shared several screenshots that showcase the game’s loading screen, character selection, in-game UI, and home screen. From what we see in the screenshots, Jett, Phoenix, Reyna, Breach, Skye, Sova, and Killjoy are for now confirmed to be in the mobile version of Valorant. Most likely, all Agents will eventually be available, but probably not from the get-go.

So, what does this Valorant Mobile beta in China means for the global release? Most big publishers first test their mobile games in China, as that’s one of the biggest mobile games markets in the world. The fact that we have a playable version of the game indicates that we can expect a full release by the end of 2022. At the moment, our estimation is that the game will become globally available in the summer of 2022. Of course, this is just our speculation. For now, that’s all we know about the Valorant Mobile release date.
