Since being released in 2020, the Riot Games phenomenon Valorant has hooked fans with its powerful cinematics, rich characterisations and varied storylines. And following the huge success of the animated Netflix series Arcane, based on its sister Riot title, League of Legends, the rumour is that Valorant could soon follow onto the world’s television screens.
Arcane has proven to be a massive global hit, reaching the No.1 position in 38 countries and securing a second season on the air.
Commenting on the speculation, Valorant’s Creative Director David Nottingham said on the May 19th Ask Valorant blog: “Arcane was amazing and we’d be lying if we claimed not to have hopes and dreams of one day delivering something of that stature in the Valorant Universe.”
The prospect of a Valorant television show remains a rumour but given the successful synergy Arcane has generated between Riot and Netflix, fans and viewers should certainly watch this space.
