shroud about Valorant: "will accompany us for years to come"
Shroud just can't get enough of Valorant, he's just like us. In a live stream on Microsoft's platform mixer the Canadian now answered some questions of his fans and predicted a rosy future for Valorant. But the final Valorant version has not even been released yet.
Play Valorant every day for over a month: Isn't that getting boring? When asked by a fan, shroud reacted astounded:
No, not at all. It's very difficult to be bored with valorant right now.
First-person shooters are THE genre for shroud
Shroud is certain that Valorant will still be played in ten years' time. The FPS genre is currently at its peak, with player and viewer numbers of well-known streamers rising rapidly.

One viewer in the chat said that modern shooters only have a lifespan of about six months, but the streamer reacted with astonishment:
Which FPS only lasts for 6 months? Counter-Strike has been played for almost two decades. Valorant will surely run well for another 10 years! Call of Duty is the biggest FPS in the world! Year after year after year! Then Halo, Overwatch... I don't understand your argument.
Neither do we, to be honest. After all, the Valorant Beta and Call of Duty: Warzone are shunting from one record to the next. If Riot Games doesn't completely screw up the final Valorant release, shroud might be right.
So: Does Valorant have what it takes to continue to dominate the esports market for the next few years? Or will the shooter quickly disappear into oblivion? A third option would be what we're seeing lately with the Overwatch league. More news and articles from the world of gaming and esports can be found on EarlyGame.
