INTRO: Although there are reports about Riot prototyping its flagship tactical FPS title, Valorant for gaming consoles, we haven’t seen any longer developments of the console version of the sport. However, now, data miners have found relevant codes inside the newest patch of the title which suggests that Valorant is soon coming to mobile devices.
Since its launch earlier this year, Valorant went on to become one of the most popular video games in the eSports scene. The title is currently only available for PC. However, mentions of “DeviceProfile” for mobile devices like the iPhone X and XS in the inside-codes of the game hints that Riot is actually testing the game for the mobile platform. You can check out the picture below, which shows the said “DeviceProfile”.
Data miners at Valorant Express (@ValorantExpress) recently discovered the ASCII text file inside the 1.09 patch, which nerfed the foremost powerful gun within the game earlier this month. As per the miners, Riot made “some adjustments” to the sport during this patch to support it for a few iOS devices.
Now, there is a high chance that the game is getting to be dropping for the Apple devices first, before launching for Android users. This is because all the initial device profiles within the inside-code of the game are for iOS devices. And there are no references of any Android device in the codes.
Moreover, with Fortnite and PUBG Mobile gone from the App Store, there’s an entire user-base that’s trying to find a replacement addictive mobile game to play.
