While Riot likes to keep things to a tight schedule when it comes to patches in their games, many players are still wondering when the next VALORANT update is. As a highly competitive esports title, VALORANT requires a fair amount of patches to keep things as balanced as they can be at all times - especially when you're always adding new Agents into the mix.

Due to this, the game gets a fair amount of regularly scheduled updates, adding new items, changing various abilities, and balancing the various weapons available in the game. Things are never going to be stale in the world of VALORANT, and the regular patches are a big part of that.

So, if you're looking to find out when the next VALORANT update is, or just want to see the full patch schedule for 2023, all you need to do is carry on reading down below.

The next VALORANT update will drop on Friday, June 23, 2023.

This will be the 7.00 patch and will bring all of the new content prepped for the new Act III that will drop shortly after. This is one of the most exciting times of the year as this will be more than just your standard weapon or Agent changes and will likely bring far more to the game.

Make sure to check back at a later date once this patch has arrived to find out when the next VALORANT update will arrive, as we will have all of the details here for you.
