VALORANT is easily one of the hottest tactical shooters on the market right now with a massive player count to back it up. Combining the best of both worlds of both CS:GO and Overwatch, it melds a perfect combination of precise tactical gameplay, with great storytelling for each agent. Releasing in 2020 to pretty big acclaim, VALORANT had already captured the hearts and mouses of many players. Now 2 years later, VALORANT still holds strong with a large player count all around the world, excited to see what Riot has next in store for them.

VALORANT: Monthly Player Count

It’s hard to tell just how many people play VALORANT, with Riot not releasing any statistics about the player base, there isn’t really any real way to fully confirm the exact number. According to Activeplayer.io, there are about 22 million people who have played within the last 30 days. VALORANT has seen a steady gain in players over its lifetime with about 17 million players at the end of 2020. 

VALORANT: Daily Player Count

In terms of daily players, VALORANT hovers around the 2 million player mark, which shows how healthy the player base is. This statistic has steadily grown since VALORANT's release in 2020 when it was around 1.7 million. 

VALORANT: Player Count vs Overwatch And CS:GO

In terms of population, according to ActivePlayer.io, VALORANT hasn’t quite reached the absolute monstrosity of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which has been a monolith of the genre. Counter-Strike still holds a fair lead over VALORANT, with about 33 million active players within the last 30 days, and hovers around the 2.2 million daily player count. This indicates that most players come back to CS every so often, but don’t play quite as often as VALORANT players.

Overwatch has fallen from grace as one of the spotlight shooters of the generation. With only 9 million active players, and only 800k players per day. It’s easy to see that Overwatch has truly lost its shine that once captured players in its chaotic team-based gameplay. 

VALORANT's Future

VALORANT is an incredibly popular game at the moment, and as it currently stands will only get more and more popular over time. With Riot consistently releasing new maps, agents and skin lines it’s easy to see why players keep coming back to the game. 

We can only wait and see what will happen to VALORANT, but as it currently stands, with its healthy player base, and its addictively good gameplay it has an incredibly bright future ahead of it.
