Valorant has been steadily building its roster every Act. As we look forward to Episode 2 Act 3, people are already guessing what Riot has in store for Agent 16. Here’s everything we know.
With the launch of Ghanaian Agent Astra, there are now 15 Valorant Agents for teams to strategize around. With Act 2 presumably ending on April 27, we can look forward to what may come next.
There are already signs of Agent 16 and their impact on Valorant, as Riot continues to subtly tell and build the story of Kingdom and the characters of Future Earth.
Since we’re still weeks away until Riot fully leans into the Act 3 hype, we don’t have much to go off of for the next Agent in Valorant.
A recent video dropped by Valorant’s Arabic account, VALORANTar had fans everywhere hyped for a possible new Agent or map release, it turns out that the trailer was actually for Strike Arabia, a new tournament.

Therefore we’re back to the drawing board when it comes to any new characters joining the fray, but it’s likely that we’ll see snippets of information start to drop as we get closer to Episode 2, Act 3.
However, judging by the overwhelmingly positive response to the idea of a Middle Eastern Agent to keep Cypher company, maybe Riot will take fan thoughts into consideration either for the new addition to the roster or further down the line.
Riot are keeping to their schedule of one Agent per Act, so it would be on the release of Episode 2 Act 3 being the target date. It’s expected to roll around around April 27, 2021, so that would be the most likely release for Agent 16.
We’ll be updating this page as more information becomes available on the next character to release in Valorant.
