Free-to-play title Fortnite has been a massive success for Epic Games. The company has revealed that the game has crossed 125 million players worldwide. The game has enjoyed continued updates, and there are more on the way. The main competitions to look forward to is the Fortnite World Cup.
Epic Games’ statement on the competitive season for 2018-2019 and the world cup is below:
We’ll be supporting community organized events, online events, and major organized competitions all over the world, where anyone can participate, and anyone can win. Fortnite World Cup Qualifiers begin in Fall 2018, and culminate in the first Fortnite World Cup in late 2019. Whether you’re in the competition or watching at home, we want this to be fun for everyone.
What about the specifics? The $100,000,000 will be split between many events at different levels of competition around the globe. Fortnite World Cup play will focus on Solos and Duos, but there’ll be plenty of opportunities to squad-up in competition, too.
This is for you, the players. Qualifications for the Fortnite World Cup will be based on merit. Epic will not be selling teams or franchises, and won’t allow third-party leagues to do so either.
