Valorant has become extremely popular among FPS fans, but exactly how many people play Valorant in 2023? Here’s what we know about Valorant player count.

Valorant entered the FPS genre as a less serious 5v5 FPS game. At least, that’s what players deduced from its upbeat, animated visuals. But the game has a massive player base and a widespread esports circuit in 2023. 

Riot’s FPS is making waves in 2023, especially among the younger audience. According to Bloomberg, 70% of Valorant players are Generation Z, which isn’t surprising. It also confirms exactly how many monthly players Valorant has. 

How many people play Valorant in 2023?


In 2023, Valorant has 24 million monthly players.

For a game that is still new compared to its mature competitors, 24 million monthly players is a huge number. According to activeio, about 1,540,607 players logged into their Valorant accounts daily in the last 30 days. This count has been consistent since May 2023.

The thriving player count also reflects on the Twitch viewer count of Valorant. In September, about 86,000 people watched Valorant streams. For a new game, as compared to its mature competitors, these are massive numbers that Valorant has achieved in a matter of three years. The player count is only expected to increase as Valorant becomes more popular.

Due to its flashy visuals and agents with vibrant personalities, the younger player base finds it easier to connect with the game. This is part of the reason its majority player base is Gen-Z. If Riot keeps this up, Valorant will only become more popular among the masses. 

In 2023, Valorant became one of the most popular shooter titles in esports when Elon Musk, one of the world’s richest people, graced the Valorant Champions 2023 event. It’s not something you see every day. The event was also attended by Ben Affleck, who also seemed to know a lot about the game.
