ValorLeaks has shared the codename of the upcoming Valorant Agent through his recent Tweet.
As leaked by the dataminer, Valorant Agent 21 has been codenamed ‘Mage’.
While not much else is currently known about the new Valorant update, it’s fairly certain that Agent 21 will be a Controller. This is due to the fact that Astra was the last Controller who was added to the game and that was way back in March 2, 2021.
Since then, the game has received Agents for all roles but for Controllers. The current roster of Controllers in Valorant consist of Brimstone, Omen, Viper, and Astra.

The exact release date of Valorant Agent 21 hasn’t been revealed by the developers as of yet. However, fans of the title can expect the new Valorant Agent to arrive alongside the upcoming Episode 5 Act 2 update.
