Valorant Mobile May Arrive On Southeast Asia Region First
In many ways, it does make sense to potentially go out in Southeast Asia first, But there are also unique challenges and very high expectations for how a game should perform on mobile. That could mean that we may look at other regions that are less demanding first. Valorant Mobile is going to have a really big focus in Southeast Asia just because of the fact that it is a mobile-first region.
Our most recent milestone is hitting the one-year anniversary, and getting to a point where we have a large and stable player base, said Hulong. We've seen 14 million active PC players and half a billion games played in the first year.
The General Manager also said that during the launch of the PC version he wasn't sure how responsive the region will be. That's why he said that the X10 Esports participation in the VCT stage 2 Masters Rejkjavik is another accomplishment. He mentioned that the viewership the company has seen is promising which is enough to make him think about the bigger investment they can do in the Esports within the region.
The launching of Valorant Mobile in Southeast Asia would bring in a completely new esports environment to the region.
