Valorant appears to be coming to consoles. A recent job posting by Riot Games on the Hitmaker website, the developer is seeking to hire a manager of game design exclusively for consoles. The necessity of anticipating player demands across “all relevant platforms” is highlighted in the job description, and Riot is seeking to employ someone with “experience working on many platforms, PC, Mobile, and Console.” Although Riot Games has yet to make an official announcement, it looks like Valorant might be heading to the PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
You will assist in creating a vision and providing direction to designers as you bring VALORANT to new platforms as a game design manager for consoles. You will be in charge of maintaining the design principles that make VALORANT unique on PC and transforming it into the best tactical shooter for Consoles. “Under your direction and leadership, the design team will modify the extremely difficult PC gameplay for a gamepad audience.
The internet era has greatly facilitated the hiring process for video game businesses, but it has also led to a lot of information reaching fans before official announcements are prepared. Riot’s search for key personnel for the console versions suggests that it might take some time before Valorant is prepared for other platforms. There is simply no way to know for sure, but for PlayStation and Xbox enthusiasts, this is undoubtedly positive.
Since its release more than two years ago, Valorant has received a lot of attention. A console release may allow for a far larger player base. Of course, there’s no way of knowing whether the console versions would include cross-play, but we’ll know a lot more when Riot Games is good and ready!
