League of Legends studio Riot Games has just confirmed their Valorant release date set for June 2 with the closed beta ending soon on May 28. Until now the online game has been only accessible through Twitch code drops, which has made it easier to Riot to gather feedback from the target demographic for their latest adventure. 

The team over at Riot has mentioned a few times now that Valorant isn't some quick hit, they are in this for the long haul as they are with League of Legends. With years of support planned, new content drops, new characters, and evolutions we have no idea about; Valorant is shaping up to be the next big thing in esports and in online gaming as a whole. 

With Riot Games paying special attention to fan feedback to make the necessary changes to make Valorant an even better experience, it will be interesting to see where the online title goes from here. With comparisons drawn from Overwatch and CS:GO, from the first week the beta dropped many were already heralding this experience as the "next big thing," something to challenge even the comfier games on the esports scene.
