Until the matches are quick and queues are healthy, Escalation mode is going to stay. The developer has also planned rotating modes for the future.

Jared Berbach, principal producer at Valorant, discussed about the chaotically-fun game Escalation mode will stay for now.

For the future Riot Games is planning to introduce periodically rotating modes, similar to the way they rotated Snowball Fight.

Spike Rush Mode in Valorant

According to Berbach, Spike Rush was a limited-time mode. But owing to its strong demand, queue health and continued engagement, this mode maintained its place in the ecosystem.

The developers determine a mode’s performance through player’s data. This info is related to the number of hours spend by the players and their satisfaction level.

Likely Addition of Warmup Mode

Last weekend, Berbach had revealed another update via social media. He explained the likely addition of a warmup mode that may be added in the future.

This mode would cater to the players’ requirements of an infinite Deathmatch-style session.

However, this mode might be complex to create because it will have possibilities for players to join matches in between. There would also be a possibility of warming up while waiting for a match in a queue.

Nevertheless, no fixed date and time have been announced for the release of this Valorant’s warm-up mode.
