Riot Games hosted the 10th-anniversary celebration of their game League of Legends back in October of 2019. There were many updates revealed for League of Legends and a handful of games revealed by the studio. Among those games, the most hyped one has to be the upcoming Project A. It’s a tactical first-person shooter in the style of CS: GO. Today though, it appears we may finally have the full name of the game, now known as Valorant.
This title may not be official yet, but there is extensive evidence to say that it’s Project A. For one, the studio recently trademarked the name Valorant which is to be “downloadable computer game software.” This alone could be any of their other games, but it would be surprising considering there isn’t much to link Valorant to League of Legends. The only link that comes close is the land of Valoran, but that seems not to have any connections to the other titles. With all others being linked to League of Legends in some form, it’s hard to believe that this could not be Project A.
If that isn’t enough evidence for you, there are now a few social media accounts set up regarding Valorant. The Twitter account alone has over 5000 followers at the time of this article, and among those are many pro-FPS and battle royale players. These include Bandy, an ex-professional Fortnite player who plans to get into Project A. There are also several brands such as OGN, an esports organizer who’s supported several Leauge of Legends and PUBG tournaments.
Of course, don’t take this as 100% proof, but there’s overwhelming evidence to support it. Do you think Project A is known as Valorant? Are you excited to finally play the game when it releases? Let us know, and stay tuned at The Nerd Stash for more news, reviews, and more!
