Valorant is slowly nearing the end of Episode 2 Act 3 and players are already looking forward to some big changes in Episode 3. Before we get there, Riot will release Valorant patch 2.11.
If you remember correctly, Valorant never got patch 2.10, and we were stuck with 2.09. The reason? Riot updating their engine for the game. It's either that, or a completely different reason they chose to hide. In any case, that led to Valorant patch 2.11 getting postponed by two weeks.
Periodically, we have to update the engine for our game. Due to the nature of these updates, we want to give ourselves plenty of testing time and a stabilization period before shipping it to you. So, there will be no Patch 2.10. The next update will be Patch 2.11, around June 8.— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) May 17, 2021
With that said, the 2.11 Valorant patch will be more than welcome, as the game usually gets a new update every two weeks. The current one has been around for almost a month, as 2.09 came out on May 11.

When is the Valorant Patch 2.11 Release Date?
Riot themselves mentioned the release date of patch 2.11 to be June 8. More specifically, "around June 8", and that could mean - today, tomorrow, or later. Our best guess is that the 2.11 update will drop tomorrow at the latest as two weeks later players will be expecting the start of Episode 3 on June 22.

Valorant Patch 2.11: What To Expect
Riot Games already revealed that they have some big changes in mind with Episode 3 Act 1. This means that we shouldn't expect too much from the poor 2.11 patch. We might see some balance changes, but the promised Yoru buffs will probably be delayed to a later date. Our best guess is that Valorant patch 2.11 will be a minor one, offering mainly bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and some small tweaks before the start of Episode 3. One potential big change that might come with patch 2.11 is price adjustments for most of the weapons.
