finally getting real
Regarding the “Console version of Valorant”, Riot Games’ representative title will be released this summergame pass(*Valorant is currently only available for the PC version), and a data miner has created a game file containing PS4 and Xbox One icons.what i discoveredIt made it all the more realistic.
If the console version, especially the PS version of Valorant, which has a large Japanese gamer base, appears, it will be a new horizon for Riot Games, which has been developing games only on PC and mobile, and that itself is an interesting story. If successful, is it possible to port other flagship titles of the company such as “League of Legends”?
