Follow Riot Games' announcement live at 5pm:
Geoff Keighley, known in particular for his role as host of the Game Awards, announced on Twitter a special program on Valorant. The program will be streamed and will welcome some of the game’s developers, including its manager, Anna Donlon. This will be an opportunity for players to ask questions to the Riot Games’ teams, but also to follow a big announcement.
This exceptional stream will be held as part of the Summer Game Fest, Thirsday, 21st May 2020 at 5pm. This is an event held from May to August to compensate for the cancellation of E3 and GamesCom. Developers who had things to show at these events will follow each other all summer.
Even if we can’t be sure about the content of the announcement, we will not hesitate to speculate a little! Fact is that we can expect something quite consistent when we ask for players’ attention during these events.
Besides its updates, it’s already been over a month since Valorant wasn’t updated with real new content. It would therefore not be absurd for the announcement to relate a new Agent or a new map. Data mining has already highlighted a lot of potential Agents, but all opinions seem to agree around the addition of the Ascent map.
Even if we can’t confirm it, this announcement could be linked to the dimensional rift that appeared a few days ago. Will a new Agent come out or will we find ourselves on Ascent through them? And why not both?
You can follow the announcement live on Summer Game Fest's Twitch Channel. If you can’t be there, don’t panic! We’ll of course be there to give you an update.
