Here is the recently leaked player card of the upcoming map.

However, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of a new map joining the map pool. Riot is known for dropping clues about future content through Battle Pass cosmetics, often weaving elements of the game's lore. Keen-eyed players spotted a potential hint in an Episode 8 Act 2 player card titled "Underneath it all." The image depicts what appears to be the ruins of a massive assembly building bathed in light from a hole above. It also shows a figure leaping between cliffs, though their identity remains unclear.

The last map, the Los Angeles-inspired Sunset, was released in August 2023. This ended a seven-month gap in terms of new content for the main modes of Valorant aside from new Agents since Lotus' release in January. Following this pattern, a new map is certainly overdue!

With each Valorant map offering a unique theme and setting, an underground map seems like a perfect fit to diversify the current pool and introduce fresh strategic challenges. However, it's important to remember that this is speculation. We'll have to wait for further announcements or hints from Riot to confirm the details of the upcoming map so stay tuned!
