It has been quite some time since we saw a new map in Valorant. Riot Games probably have a surprise with the next update as it looks like a new potential Valorant map has been leaked! The name of the map is Breeze!
If you've been itching to know where the location of the next Valorant map will be, we might have an answer for you. Riot just announced the return of the Night Market and while many fans were happy to get skins at a reduced price, others noticed a couple of hints left by the devs.
The Next Valorant Map Location Leak
The tweet that revealed the return of the Night Market could be hiding the location of the next map in Valorant. Maybe hiding isn't the best word, though.
Night. Market is back. Here's your chance!— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) April 7, 2021
You never know what will be on offer at Night. Market, and weapon vendors rarely offer the same prices twice. Visit the in-game store tab to see your offers now. pic.twitter.com/vGqnLJr080
If you take a closer look at the picture you'll find that there are coordinates at the top left and bottom right: 71 W and 25 N. If we try to find the location of these coordinates there are only two possible outcomes. Cancun, Mexico, and right in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle.
Cancun seems like a good place for a new map. On the Night Market banner, we also find "Carib." and Cancun is quite close to the Caribbean coast, so it makes perfect sense.

The Night Market image also has coordinates pointing to the Bermuda Triangle.
This leads me to believe the ship in the Lost At Sea Card is going to stumble upon an unmarked island within the Triangle.

The next best guess is right in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle. Now that would be really interesting, as the creative team can really go wild here, since there's a ton of mystery surrounding this part of the world. Considering the two locations are somewhat similar, the theme of the next map might be somewhat the same. Sea-based with boats perhaps? An underwater map? We'll find out soon. The music for the unreleased map was already leaked at the end of March.

Because of this audio, I highly assume the map will be tropical / exotic themed. pic.twitter.com/CxfLEXeKY4
Will There Be a New Agent With The Next Valorant Map?
Another possibility is that Riot is dropping hints not only about the next Valorant map, but also the upcoming agent. Data miners already found Foxtrot/Breeze in the Valorant in-game files and those might be the names of the new agent or the new map. Maybe both?
What's The Release Date For The Next Valorant Map?
The next Valorant Map will most likely be released with the next update, which is expected on April 21 or April 27 (when Act 2 actually ends). The Valorant Map Leak makes us think that we'll be taking a trip to the Caribbeans soon. In the meantime, players noticed that there are some new in-game posters in Valorant which confirmed the name of the map as Breeze.
April 21 Update
The big patch hasn't been deployed yet but Riot Games teased players with a tweet earlier today.
Welcome to paradise. pic.twitter.com/V6apZiBPyr— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) April 20, 2021
More pictures and teasers were revealed just a couple of hours later.
It looks like concept art for the new map Breeze, and it seems the leaks were correct as the location is a tropical one. We'll know more later today once the 2.08 patch drops, so stay tuned for an update.
