Valorant Celebrates One Year Anniversary By Announcing Valorant Mobile & PC Player Count
Valorant has an average player count of more than 14 million players a month logging into the game. Those are impressive numbers, even by free-to-play standards.
In a press release, Riot has announced plans for Valorant to come to mobile devices. You can read the statement below.
“Over the game’s first year, VALORANT players competed in over half a billion games of the team-based shooter. With enthusiasm for VALORANT only continuing to grow, Riot now is preparing to expand the franchise - starting with VALORANT Mobile - in order to bring VALORANT to more players around the world.”
No more information on the title has been given, but it’s clear that Riot is trying to bring Valorant to even more players on a global scale.
