South Africa is getting its own Valorant servers! The news dropped on gamers last night after Anna Donlon, developer team lead on Valorant tweeted the news.
While details are still scarce on the rollout for these servers, this is great news for gamers who play the shooter. It also means Valorant might have the potential to take up an even bigger space in the South African competitive gaming scene.
Soon after Donlon announced the news, the official Valorant Twitter account followed up by confirming Carry1st as the partner for the local servers. Carry1st was also part of the launch of COD Mobile back in 2022.
There’s no ETA at the moment for the rollout of the South African Valorant servers. However, the news is exciting nonetheless. We have reached out to Riot for updates on the launch and will share news as soon as we hear more.
We’re so excited that local servers are coming to South Africa!
We’ll be partnering with @Carry1st to give the local players and community in South Africa exciting events and experiences. Stay tuned for more.
