Valorant is out now on PC after a successful closed beta period that attracted record-breaking Twitch numbers. Its popularity has many fans and potential players wondering about a possible console release. Will Valorant ever come to PS4 and Xbox One, or even Nintendo Switch, as other competitive games like Overwatch have? In GameSpot’s Play For All interview with Riot Games, we asked Anna Donlon, Executive Producer of Valorant, to elaborate on the team’s plans to bring Valorant to more platforms.
“We are definitely prototyping that right now,” Donlon told GameSpot. “But there’s a way to play this game and there’s a way to experience this game that we’re not entirely sure translates completely to console play.”
Donlon explained that core to Valorant is its “strong level of competitive integrity,” and its designers worry about players feeling like anyone has an unfair advantage based on the platform they’re playing on. A potential console version of Valorant would need to capture the same Valorant “experience” for all players, according to Riot.
