Is there a Valorant Mobile release date?

Riot hasn’t announced any release date or time period for Valorant Mobile. The devs have been working on the mobile version for over three years now and significant progress has been made as evident in the leaked gameplay videos.

However, many leakers in the community expect Valorant Mobile’s beta to go live globally by the end of 2023 or early 2024. If this does happen, then the full game can launch a few weeks after the beta period comes to an end.

Keep in mind, that a beta version of Valorant Mobile was released in China to a very small group of people in 2022 and there’ve been several leaks surfacing from the region in 2023 as well.

Valorant Mobile beta gameplay leaks: Agents & Maps

Several leaks have showcased Valorant Mobile’s gameplay, with 14 Agents available to fight on familiar maps. Naturally, the core gameplay remains the same, with 5 Attackers looking to plant the Spike and 5 Defenders protecting the bomb sites.

Here’s every map we’ve seen so far in the leaked gameplays of Valorant Mobile:

  • Ascent
  • Breeze
  • Bind
  • Haven
  • Icebox

Considering four of the seven maps active in the PC version are already there in Valorant Mobile, we can expect the three remaining maps – Lotus, Split, and Sunset, to be available as well.

Additionally, 14 Agents have been seen in Valorant Mobile, confirmed in the title’s Agent select screen as well as the leaked MVP animations for every character. On the other hand, there are 23 Agents in Valorant after Episode 7 Act 3’s kickoff, with Iso being the latest Duelist.
