Will Valorant have a Netflix series like Arcane? Riot responds

Since Arcane’s record-shattering success in gaming, fans have been requesting Riot Games to make a Valorant Netflix series. We may now have an answer as to whether the developer is considering an animated show. 

Valorant is a popular tactical shooter game, but it also has a mind-bending plot. All 19 agents in Valorant have wild stories that add life to their characters. Their unique stories and experiences set them apart from one another. But that’s not all, as Riot Games has curated a massive fictional universe in Valorant that revolves around two Earths and a fascinating script. 

When Arcane was released as a Netflix show based on League of Legends, it made Valorant fans imagine their favorite characters as heroes and villains in a similar dramatic setting. Since then, fans have been wondering if Valorant will get a Netflix show like Arcane. Riot Games developers have now answered. 

Will Valorant get a Netflix series? 

A Valorant Netflix series isn’t entirely off the table, but it won’t happen anytime soon. The game is still in its early stages, and Valorant’s lore is developing with each new act. 

In the latest Ask Valorant episode, creative director David Nottingham clarified why Valorant wouldn’t get its own show anytime soon. According to him, Riot Games still has more plans to expand the ever-growing Valorant universe. The developer is currently heavily focused on the game, its mechanics, lore, and other areas that make Valorant one of the top shooters in 2022. 

However, the developer hasn’t set aside the Netflix series idea in its entirety. Valorant may get its own animated show, but the exact date and time isn’t yet set. 

“From the outset, we set out to create an expansive universe with depth of characters to support any potential future experiences that we believe players would want, including premium entertainment,” David Nottingham said.

This means that Riot has kept a potential show in its considerations while scripting the game’s lore. But it may not happen anytime soon. League of Legends got a Netflix show about 12 years after its release. That game has powerful characters and a story that is mature and engaging. While Valorant already has players hooked, it still has other areas that may require more attention before a new Netflix series is created. 

Does Valorant have a replay system? 

A replay system is a frequently requested feature in Valorant, yet Valorant still doesn’t have it. As of now, there is no plan for a player-facing version of a replay system. Riot Games could still change its mind about this later on, and it’s possible the developer has already worked on some version of a replay system internally.
