Riot Games initially released Valorant on PC only but they are looking into expanding the environment and mobile devices are their first target.

Valorant launched one year ago, on June 2, 2020. Slightly before and at the time, the game broke numerous records, including the number of concurrent viewers on Twitch as everyone wanted to gain access to the beta but a significant chunk of popularity remained even after everyone got access to the free-to-play game.

This was best shown during VCT Masters that managed to score over one million concurrent viewers during the finals match between Sentinels and Fnatic .

With that much popularity in such a short period of time, it is no wonder gamers from platforms other than PC expressed their desire to play Valorant. On June 2, 2021, Riot Games announced something like that would indeed be happening.

Valorant Mobile will be the first venture beyond PC realm. Currently, Riot only confirmed this version to be in the works but their plans to expand the franchise didn't deny plans for a console version. After all, League of Legends Wild Rift is coming to both mobile and consoles so there aren't any barriers keeping the company from expanding to that market as well.
