Rumors about tactical shooter Valorant releasing on console have picked up once again after a new Riot Games job listing. 

Valorant has quickly become one of the most popular FPS games right now. However, only PC players have been able to enjoy the experience that Valorant has to offer.

Back in September 2020, Riot Games confirmed that they were still working on a console edition of the shooter. However, it’s been a year and a half and nothing has come from it.

While rumors of a console version have been floating around, no release date has ever been revealed but that could be changing very soon.

Valorant coming to console?

Known leaker account ValoLeaks tweeted out that Riot Games has listed a new job on their website titled “Game Designer, Console – VALORANT.”

When looking at their website you can see that Riot has posted two jobs for this, which could mean that development for Xbox, PlayStation, and maybe even the Switch could be underway soon.

While it’s been a long time since a console version was confirmed by Riot Ziegler, it’s clear that the team is dedicated to bring the game to all gamers in the world.
