Riot Games teased the next VALORANT Agent, Agent 19, during the opening ceremony of the VCT Champions Finals earlier today. The clip shows a figure made of coded strings of numbers and letters, while a female voice speaks in Filipino and English about her powers
Before releasing the teaser during the final broadcast of VCT Champions, Riot teased the origin of the next agent in various ways. For example, in the latest Night Market released in the VALORANT client, players can see star-shaped lanterns, which are most likely parols, traditional Filipino lanterns on display during the holidays.

From what we know so far, Agent 19 will likely be a Radiant. The last Radiant Agent released, Astra, landed on servers in early 2021. The next Agent's powers appear to be related to electricity as she refers to "lightning" in the teaser. Specifically, she says, "I hope they like being struck by lightning." She also warns to "get ready" as she "goes fast", presumably alluding to some abilities in her kit.
Fans can kill time while waiting for more information on the new agent with a fun mode coming to VALORANT in the coming weeks, which will be decided among three possible options based on popular vote. Fans can probably expect some news by early next year, perhaps with the arrival of patch 4.0 next month.
