Is Valorant Cross Play?

Unfortunately, the short answer is no. Valorant doesn't support cross play. This is due to the fact that the title doesn't have a console port yet, and at the time of writing, Valorant is only available to PC players using Windows. It can be played on Mac devices using Apple OS with the help of third-party software, however, which we talk about here.

There could be console ports and cross play for Valorant in the future, though. Esports Talk spoke with Valorant executive producer Anna Donlon, who revealed a beta is being worked on for consoles; but they are taking extra steps to make sure it's definitely ready to be released.

The team want specifically to “nail it” before launching Valorant on consoles, so that players can experience the game without issues. With this in mind, it's likely console players and PC players wishing to play the game with their console friends may unfortunately be waiting a while.

That's all you need to know about cross play compatibility in Valorant. We wish we had better news, but we will be sure to update this space if the game will be ever ported to console.
