Has the Mirrorverse theory being confirmed?

There have been multiple theories regarding Valorant Agents and how two different versions of the same Agent exist at once. Some of the popular theories have involved Clones created by Kingdom Corporation, while others have included alternative earth, popularly dubbed as the Mirroverse theory.

Popular Lore enthusiast Cynprel had access to the video earlier, and was able to post his breakdown on his Twitter.
