Fortnite Season 8 teaser hints at a swashbuckling theme

Fortnite Season 8 teaser hints at a swashbuckling theme

Epic is dangling a total of $100 million in cash prizes for qualifying players, weekly winners, and World Cup champions.

Whether you still play Fortnite religiously or have already gotten over it, you can't deny that Epic Games has given the rest of the industry a real lesson in keeping people engaged over time. And it looks like Season 8 will be no different. We'll have to wait and see, but as we said, it feels like we're building towards something much bigger than your standard season changeover.

Season 8 of Fortnite is on the horizon and, apparently, pirates might be too.

This was announced as a part of the Fortnite 7.40 update patch notes.

This could be down to technical issues or Epic Games allowing Battle Pass owners more time to complete their challenges. What changes are you hoping for most? For example, they confirmed that there are no plans to make the game run at 60fps on the Nintendo Switch, they also have no plans to bring back the double shotgun due to its sheer power. The information comes from analyst group SuperData, where Fortnite revenues were beaten out by Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 on console and ranked only number five on PC (although PC results are strongly biased towards games popular in China).

Reason being, Epic Games self-publishes and distributes the game on Android which doesn't really give SuperData a way to accurately track its success.

Ten weekly qualifiers for the 2019 "Fortnite" World Cup will begin on April 13, with 100 solo players and 50 teams of pairs going forward to the $30 million finals in New York, July 26 to 28. "This comes after a peak month in December and points to an increasingly lumpy revenue profile heading into 2019".
