Valorant console testing underway by Riot Games

Valorant console testing is underway, but that doesn’t mean the title will see an eventual release on Xbox or PlayStation, Riot Games has stressed.

“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,” Executive Producer, Anna Donlon, said in conversation with GameSpot.

Just because a console version has been prototyped and is being tested doesn’t mean it will be released, she stressed.

“If we feel like we can deliver this experience on those platforms, we absolutely will. But we really want Valorant to stand for a certain type of gameplay and a certain type of experience.”

Funny that — in our preview yesterday, we said Valorant was a game that those unaccustomed to keyboard and mouse controls could rally behind for the very same reasons.

Valorant is a free-to-play title currently available on Windows PC.
