Riot’s Senior Character Producer, John Goscicki, revealed some information about Agent 21.

The blog also states that the devs have noticed the scarcity of Controllers in the game aside Viper and mentioned that there is a wide range of opportunities to add more controllers. Aside from the cheeky water-based phrases and words that relate to Mage’s leaked link with water, Agent 21 will undoubtedly fill the void that John mentions. Lastly, he added that the new agent is all set to be released and concluded that he did not want to reveal more information. The statement was concluded with an Indian phrase which reads: “Jald hi milte hain.”
Apart from all these statements, the image which is provided in the blog post is named after samosachat. The picture features some parts of the Gateway of India, Tea Glass which is often used in Indian roadside tea stalls, samosas, and Natraj pencil. These hints are strong enough to conclude that the new agent will be from India. The upcoming Indian Valorant agent is a water-based controller. Let’s wait for an official announcement.
