We may be only five months into 2022, but Valorant is already making big plans for the future of Esports with an ambitious vision and plan to turn Valorant into the #1 competitive FPS in the world. Their plan is split into four different sections: Deep connections to the in-game competitive experience, expand Domestic and Game Changers Leagues, brand new premier-level International Leagues, and finally, Global Events.

The first section Valorant wants to tackle is to create deeper connections though in-game experiences. Valorant is aiming to build a player-driven competitive environment. The path to pro will now be accessible to every player right inside Valorant. In a new in-game competitive mode, every player will have a chance to feel what it’s like to compete like a professional. Top-ranked teams will be given the chance to qualify for their respective Domestic Leagues and take steps on their path to pro. This idea will hopefully foster and highlight up-and-coming talent.

The next target is to expand Domestic and Game Changers Leagues. Domestic Leagues will continue to offer higher levels of organized competition for the best players in each region. These leagues will also integrate with in-game tournament modes to allow for greater levels of accessibility to rising talents. In the future, players can expect similar leagues, like VRL’s in Europe, launched in other regions in 2023.

Last year there were more than 40 Game Changers events that provided opportunities to women in Valorant esports. In 2023, Valorant is set on providing more training sessions to aspiring talents and continuing the Game Changers Championship. The ultimate goal is to see all genders represented across every level of Valorant competition.

One of the most important stepping stones to make Valorant's goal a reality, is working on their International Leagues. As of now, the plan is to incorporate a long-term partnership model with a select number of teams in each league with representation from all regions. Currently there is a plan to introduce three leagues around the world that will include teams from multiple regions based on geographical proximity. Teams from North America, Latin America, and Brazil will make up a league; Teams from Europe, Russia, Turkey, and MENA will make up a league; and teams from Southeast Asia, Korea, Japan, South Asia, and Oceania will make up a league. These diverse communities together should build healthy rivalries around the highest level of play.

Finally, we have Global Events and Tournaments. There will be multiple premier-level global competitions that will take place each year with top teams from International Leagues competing at Masters and Champions events while Game Changers will also continue to have a Championship event. Valorant is also working on creating a safe environment to allow for Valorant to be played in front of a live audience in 2023.

Valorant mentioned that there may be changes to this plan in the future, but as of now this is the goal for the future of Valorant in esports. Players should stay tuned if they are interested in possibly joining the ranks and becoming an esports member of Valorant in the near future.
