It seems that Riot Games has decided to lean over to Statespace for rather re-invention than improvement of their Valorant training grounds. Under terms of the agreement, Riot Games is giving Statespace an opportunity to traverse Aim Lab into becoming Valorant’s official training and coaching platform. This will allow Aim Lab to leverage Riot’s Intellectual Property to integrate in-game physics, maps and weapons to enhance the training experience for everyone.
With this agreement, Riot Games will gain a small stake in Statespace and continue to work together with Aim Lab to develop innovative training and other tools for Valorant players. This doesn’t rule out League of Legends too, which means MOBA players may receive training grounds as well.
The announcement for this partnership comes from a press release published on Wednesday.
Under the terms of the agreement, Aim Lab will become VALORANT’s official training and coaching platform. Aim Lab will leverage Riot’s Intellectual Property to integrate in-game physics, maps, and weapons that will enable VALORANT players most true-to-game training possible. Riot, upon exercise of a warrant issued in connection with the agreement, will gain a minority stake in Statespace and continue to work together with Aim Lab to develop innovative training, coaching, and scouting tools for VALORANT players and eventually MOBA players.
“We look forward to collaborating with Statespace on developing innovative training and coaching tools for VALORANT and MOBA players around the world to improve their skills at every level,” said Jake Perlman-Garr, Global Head of Corporate Development at Riot Games.
“Riot has been the best partner, collaborator, and facilitator that we could have asked for. We are thrilled to continue to improve player experience through training, coaching, and scouting in VALORANT and soon, in League of Legends,” said Dr. Wayne Mackey, CEO of Statespace.
