If you are looking forward to playing Valorant on Xbox, we might have some good news.
Valorant is a 5v5 character-based tactical shooter that looks like a hybrid of Counter-Strike and Overwatch. We already know that Valorant is coming to PlayStation consoles, so it stands to reason that there is a chance that the FPS game could be coming to Xbox as well.
In fact, various leaks and rumours suggest that Valorant is coming to Xbox consoles. Let's take a look at what these leaks say!
When is Valorant coming to Xbox consoles?
Riot Games has recently posted multiple job listings for Valorant that have to do with bringing the game to consoles. One is listed as a Game Design Manager for consoles while the other is listed as Senior Game Designer for consoles.
The job description for Game Design Manager reads: "You will be responsible for upholding design principles that define VALORANT on PC while transforming it into the definitive tactical shooter for Consoles."
Based on these job postings, we can infer that Valorant will be coming to Xbox consoles sooner or later.
Valorant Xbox release date
Now that we know for sure that Valorant is coming to Xbox consoles, the only question that is left is when Valorant will be released on Xbox consoles.
Since Riot Games hasn't announced anything official about a console release, we can only guess when Valorant will be released on Xbox consoles. Given that they have only started hiring staff to port the game, it is unlikely that Valorant will be released anytime soon.
Typically, to port a AAA title like Valorant, it would take a year or more. So based on that estimate, we can expect Valorant to be released on Xbox consoles by the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024.
That said, these are just speculations and the game could be released much earlier than that. We’ll update you with more information about Valorant on Xbox as soon as we have it.
