Valorant: New map with codename Canyon leaked

In July 2021, Riot Games released Valorant Year One Anthem, in which a floating island was spotted that was rumoured to be the new upcoming map in the game. 

Now, it looks like those rumours are true as recently, the data miners have discovered a game file called "Canyon", which could be the code name for the upcoming map in Valorant.


In addition to this, the Testing Grounds player card also showcases a landscape with a rock mountain that resembles the Grand Canyon in Arizona in the United States’ Southwestern region.

Not only this, but if you look closely at the Testing Grounds player card, you will find a structure behind the mountains on both sides that will resemble the shape of the structure shown in the image from Year One Anthem.

Earlier, Riot teased Breeze map in the "Lost at Sea" player card, and they might be doing the same thing again, although an official confirmation is yet to arrive.

As of now, there are no leaks or any other information regarding Canyon, including its release date, layout etc. however, it might get released in Valorant Episode 3 Act 3. Since the map is rumoured to be in development, it is unlikely to release in Episode 3 Act 2.

If any more information regarding Canyon gets available, we will update that in this article.
