Considering the teasers and related leaks from official VALORANT social media accounts, it seems that the new VALORANT map will be added to the game very soon.
Recently, VALORANT has made many references to the new map with pictures and videos of an underwater city from the game's social accounts.
The city itself seems to have a Portuguese influence, with text on the pictures and posters, including both in English and Portuguese. Of course, this is nothing compared to the main feature of the new environment, which looks like an inverted aquarium with buildings and statues conveniently placed under the waves.
According to the leaks, the new map was previously mentioned with the code name "Pitt", while new leaks stated that the name of the map will be "Pearl". The new map Pearl will feature two sites where attackers and defenders can play. However, these map names have not been officially confirmed.
With multiple teasers already released and a live stream discussing the upcoming Episode Five, players often have one question in mind: When will the new map be released? Here's everything we know about Pitt/Pearl and its release.
When is the VALORANT Pitt/Pearl map coming out?
The Pitt/Pearl map also has no release date, as the new map hasn't been officially announced yet. However, judging by the increasing teasers, players won't have to wait too long.
The battle pass in Episode Four, Act Three, will currently end on June 21, so it seems likely that the new Episode will start on June 22. And since VALORANT has already released a teaser about the new map, The new map will likely be added to the game with the release of the new Episode.
It's been almost nine months since the release of Fracture, the last map coming to VALORANT. Releasing the newest map in the near future will make sense in terms of development times as there is a longer than usual time between map versions.
Unfortunately, there's no way to say for sure when June 22 will be the next map's release date. Fortunately, a June 16 release will likely answer all players' questions regarding the new Episode and the next map.
