A Valorant Team Deathmatch mode leaks and if accurate, the online shooter from Riot Games will be getting a lot beefier in terms of competition with other similar games in the competitive scene. With so many changes and additions already due to player feedback from the ongoing closed beta, a Team Deathmatch mode hasn't been confirmed but it is heavily implied.
A leak account, appropriately just called Valorant Leaks (via TalkEsports), posted a screenshot of a recent datamine that seems to suggest that a Teath Deathmatch mode is on the way:

Valorant isn't even out yet, it's still in closed beta, but the online game has already released a Ranked Mode and a few other major revisions to make it an even better experience. The datamine seen above mentions a file name TDM, which is short for Team Deathmatch, under the Game Modes tab seen in the title's files. It wouldn't be surprising to see this addition, it fits right into the game's overall appeal and competitive angle, though we don't have an official confirmation of this mode's arrival at this time.
With the leak gaining traction, it's possible that Riot Games made confirm the new mode soon, or they may wait for it to be revealed when Valorant gets an official launch date outside of Summer 2020. From the various character changes made since the beta's launch to the many, many skins that players can unlock, Valorant is shaping to deliver on its promise of being the next big thing in both the esports scene and in online gaming communities in a more general sense.
Valorant is a very different experience than that of the studio's prime game of notoriety: League of Legends. That being said, it's nice to see the company branch out into different online experiences, especially given how many League of Legend spinoffs are on the horizons and how much success that IP has seen over the years.
With a Team Deathmatch mode and more characters slated for release post-launch, it will be intriguing to see where Riot takes this adventure and the longevity of it with both casual and pro player bases. Will this overthrow CS:GO and Overwatch in the esports mind's eye, or will it yet another addition to the growing experiences in a more professional sense? We'll see, but the journey thus far has been exciting and we can't wait to see where Riot Games takes Valorant next.
