The League of Legends developers have posted another hint at the possibility of Valorant, their multiplayer competitive shooter, going beyond PC.
Riot Games has posted a new job offer for Valorant that suggests a port of the competitive shooter to consoles. The developer is looking for a senior designer for the multiplayer game, but specifically one for “console”, even mentioning it in the posting’s title.
The job offer reads: “As a Senior Game Designer, you will design, tweak, and optimize the player experience. Your analytical skills, player insight, and creativity aid in crafting in- and out-of-game experiences that engage and surprise players.”
You will collaborate with interdisciplinary teams and work with every tool at hand to innovate and iterate player-focused designs that'll delight millions around the world. Design and refine features, modes, and systems to help bring console game products to market. You will report to the Senior Manager, Game Design.”
Are these signs of Valorant coming to consoles?
This isn’t the first time Riot Games has shown interest in launching Valorant for consoles. The company behind League of Legends even showed off a very early prototype, although back then they were quick to assure that they hadn’t decided yet whether it would become a full product or not.
“There's a way to play this game and there's a way to experience this game that we're not entirely sure translates completely to console play. If we feel like we can deliver this experience on those platforms, we absolutely will,” said Anna Donlon, Executive Producer of Valorant for Riot Games, in an interview with GameSpot.
Valorant is an extremely successful free to play game that can be downloaded without any cost, currently exclusively for PC. League of Legends, the original hit title that elevated Riot Games to legendary status, is available on PC, as well as mobile devices thanks to it’s spin-off League of Legends: Wild Rift.
