Did Riot Games just tease another new Valorant Agent already?

Valorant Episode 3 Act 1 is right around the corner, and there's a new Agent joining the roster, but has Riot Games already teased the next new Agent in their Year One Anthem video?

Here's everything we know about "Deadeye"...

Deadeye First Look

An eagle-eyed Valorant Lore enthusiast, Cynprel, has shared a few screenshots from Valorant's Year One Anthem video that showcase what appears to be a new Agent.

In the tweets below, you can see a figure dressed quite smartly appear throughout the Valorant video. Reportedly, his name has been currently attributed as "Deadeye" by fans due to that word being seen on one of the weapons he is holding.

Cynprel believes they look a lot like the shadowy figure we've seen in Valorant's Episode 3 promotional art and there's little evidence to sway them from this theory at the time of writing.

You can check out the Year One Anthem below:

Whatever happens, we won't see this mystery character for a little while yet. Why? Because Valorant Episode 3 Act 1 hasn't even properly begun yet!

This update is going to be pretty big for Valorant and Riot Games has recently shared a momentous Patch Notes to prove it. Every Agent is undergoing some sort of alteration and the Buy Phase prices of almost every buyable are changing too!

There's also going to be a new Agent: KAY/O. This robotic Initiator has suppressive abilities that will prove him to be an annoying foe but a useful ally. We still don't have a new map yet, but we also know Riot Games is aiming to add six new Agents to Valorant a year.

With this in mind, we aren't expecting to see "Deadeye" until at least August, if not September. It's worth keeping your eyes out though... You never know what Riot Games has up its sleeves.
