According to a Valorant leaker, Kingdom Laboratories, which is named after an in-game firm, a film based on the game will be released in 2025, linked to a YouTube livestream that will run on October 13, 2024, with a rumoured teaser thumbnail.

As a result, it’s not shocking to learn that Riot is considering making a film based on Valorant. With the production quality and crew behind it, as a result of multiple music videos and cinematics over the years, it might be another big hit like Arcane.
Furthermore, Riot apparently developing a film rather than a series on Valorant makes far more sense, considering the Mirror Earth story is still in its early stages. It is not as wide or thick as Runeterra, and there isn’t much room for experimentation in terms of content volume.
The world-building that they have done with League of Legends and Legends of Runeterra is incredible. There are several areas and over 160 champions, creating endless options and narratives in Arcane. Things will not be the same for Valorant, though.
Despite the fact that it appears promising, Riot Games has not acknowledged or denied the existence of a Valorant film. If the leak moves further, it remains to be known whose studio will be engaged in the production. Fans will have to wait patiently for an official statement from either Riot or Tencent.
