Valorant patch v1.11 delayed, new Agent Skye held back

Valorant fans eager to try the latest Agent will have to wait a few more days as Riot delayed the patch due to technical difficulties.
Valorant patch v1.11 delayed, new Agent Skye held back

Exciting news came to Valorant fans today as Riot Games unveiled a patch that welcomed a brand-new Agent, Skye, and Icebox joining the competitive map rotation.

Sadly, the devs had to backtrack on the update announcing they'd be rolling it back from the North American servers, delaying the patch outright for the rest of regions. 


"Real talk: 1.11 has been a technical nightmare. In 30 minutes, we'll be rolling back the patch for North America, Brazil, and LATAM (one at a time). We're also delaying all other regions until we get a fix. We know we've said this every patch, but thanks for sticking by," the Valorant account tweeted out.

When is Valorant patch v1.11 going to be released?

While there was no date set in stone for the re-release of patch 1.11, Riot confirmed it will happen sometime "later in the week," as they look to fix the issues while trying to accommodate a date that doesn't throw a wrench in the First Strike tournaments, the first competition organised by Riot to support the ever-growing Valorant esports scene

As for players that were already grinding the Skye contract looking to get their hands on the latest Agent, Riot gave fans good news -- you won't lose your progress on the contract, however, you won't be able to advance further until the patch is live once again. 

"You'll still see Skye in your inventory when we patch. You'll even keep your progress on her contract - you just won't be able to gain XP on it while she's not enabled."
