Fortnite News: Epic Games cancels 2020 World Cup
Big update to Fortnite e-sports! On Thursday, April 30th, 2020, Epic Games spoke on the official “Fortnite Competitive” Twitter channel about the upcoming plans – and their limitations due to the coronavirus. In March, those respondents said that they wanted to share the ambitious roadmap for the still popular Battle Royale with the community shortly.
That day has now come. But the development of Fortnite e-sports, like many other events, games, industries, and planning in these, is stalling. Accordingly, all e-sports tournaments that will be held in Fortnite in 2020 will only take place online. A great world championship like last year will not take place in 2020, it says within the many tweets.
Epic Games further explains that they don’t know when to return to big, global, and personal events. At the moment, it was still optimistic that at least in the coming year 20201 there could be some World Cup. In the meantime, however, there is news about the Fortnite Champion Series ( FNCS ), other cash cups, events from third-party providers, and of course related broadcasts.
Accordingly, one plans to host the FNCS 2020 for every Fortnite season. In this way, the best players in the world should be allowed to prove themselves and show that they belong to the world elite, despite the currently necessary restrictions. Both the FNCS and the Cash Cups are to be held regularly and further optimized in terms of format and rules to offer the players the best possible experience. In the so-called “two-step cash cups,” the best players should be able to qualify for a final lobby.
To further increase competition in Fortnite e-sports in various regions, Epic Games wanted to expand its cooperation with third-party providers about tournaments. However, all parties must bear in mind that every tournament must take place entirely online. All further information on tournament organizers can be found under this link.
Already on the weekend just around the corner, the feedback from the community will be taken to heart, and the organizers will finally announce that official broadcasts for competitive competitions – such as the FNCS – will be brought back. Tomorrow, Saturday, 7 p.m., the first associated broadcast will begin on the official Fortnite YouTube account.
3rd Party Events – We continue to work with 3rd parties to provide more experiences for players. All events must be held online only until further notice. Please see the Terms and Style Guide in the link to host an event – https://t.co/6jmgYjJXGr— Fortnite Competitive (@FNCompetitive) April 30, 2020
