Now that VALORANT is out of its closed beta and has seen a full release, lots of players are ready to take their gaming experience a step further with ranked play. A ranked mode is not available in VALORANT as of now but that might change soon
The game director of VALORANT, Joe Ziegler, took to Twitter to share some more information about the upcoming Ranked playlist. He confirmed that competitive mode is coming and it might be as soon as next week, as he remained vague about an exact date. “To answer the biggest question: rated (competitive mode) will likely be out some time next week. We’re spending this week putting together that release and making sure it is good.”
Hey everyone, It’s been hectic, so I haven’t had a lot of time to post. To answer the biggest question: rated (competitive mode) will likely be out some time next week. We’re spending this week putting together that release and making sure it is good. =)

The Ranked playlist wasn’t included in the closed beta and full release of the game, because the developers wanted more time to fine-tune and optimise the game so they could offer a more valuable competitive experience. They also wanted to give players some time to get used to the game and come up with strategies and playstyles of their own, while also allowing players that are new to VALORANT, or the FPS genre as a whole, to catch up with other players.
For many players the Ranked playlist was very high on their wishlist and they might see that wish come true in the upcoming week. Details on VALORANT’s competitive scene remain scarce, but chances are we’ll get some more reveals once Ranked play is firmly in place.
