Esports obviously figures largely in Riot’s plan for Valorant: League of Legends is more than ten years old, yet remains a massively popular game thanks to its thriving pro scene. Riot sees similar potential in its new shooter, and today it shared some of its ideas for the future of Valorant as a competitive esport.

“We’re overwhelmed by the interest and excitement behind Valorant, and we’re excited to embark on this long esports journey with you all. We’re already hearing questions on what esports will look like, and while it’s early, we’ll try to share whatever details we can,” Riot director of esports Whalen “Magus” Rozelle wrote.
