Will Riot Games Add More 2.0 Skins?

Players recently got Glitchpop 2.0 skins now we have Valorant’s Prime 2.0 skins coming to the game. On the topic of new 2.0 skins being added to the game, Art Lead San Marino stated “Potentially, but we don’t have any planned right now. Prime//2.0 and Glitchpop sets were very obvious choices for us to make more skins for. However, we’re still gathering player feedback before we decide to commit to making more skins for an existing skin line.”

Marino talked about how the new 2.0 set felt like a challenge because the team wants the upgraded variants to stay true to the heritage set by the original skins but also offer a visual upgrade at the same time. The team wants the new skins to feel cohesive with their previous counterparts instead of deviating too far from older designs.
