Gaming on consoles has evolved over the 30 frames per second cap after the introduction of the newest console by Sony called the PS5. It offers an immensely powerful gaming experience and capabilities boasting 4k gaming possibilities on heavy game titles such as Call of Duty, Spider-Man, etc.
Despite such advancements, some FPS gamers who play Valorant (Developed by Riot Games Inc.) are dismayed by its absence on the PlayStation consoles. Sure, the consoles offered by PlayStation aren’t popular for their backward compatibility, but with the PS5, they have changed this using technological, computational, and AI advancements.
Here’s all that we know about the launch of Valorant on PS4 and PS5:
Valorant Release on PS4
The PS4 is a significantly older product made by the PlayStation that was released way back in mid-November 2013 with the following famous game titles:
- Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag
- Call of Duty Ghosts
- FIFA 14
- Battlefield 4
- And More
Some of the gaming titles listed above are made by some giant game developing companies in the gaming industry like Ubisoft, Activision, EA, etc. Their other games are also known to require powerful game graphics, unlike Valorant, which can run acceptably well even on the PS4 console.
Regardless of it, Riot has released no information about the Valorant PS4 release, and fans should not expect its release either after the PS5 already having released in mid-November 2020.

Valorant Release on PS5
The PS5 is currently one of the leading gaming consoles present in the market by offering eye-watering graphics performance that can easily beat the gaming capabilities of some $1000 gaming PCs. From FPS games to racing games and other MMORPG games, it can handle it all, which is substantially impressive considering the minimal graphics requirement of Valorant.
Still, the news about the Valorant release on PS5 is null or tight-lipped, with no word about the game launching on the console any time this year or after.
One speculation behind the game not releasing on other platforms is that the game already boasts a large gaming community. It has more than 16 million monthly gamers and numerous ex-CounterStrike, Fortnite, and Overwatch players moving to the professional Valorant and casual gameplay because it is intolerant of cheaters and game exploiters. The latter reasons have evidently created great distaste among the gaming community, where multiplayer games have featured numerous instances of such activities, which are quite minimal and rare in Valorant.
