Soon Epic Games promises to share the details of the structure of eSports.
Company Epic Games has announced incredible news for competitive players — Fortnite is the competitive scene. As soon as a “battle Royale” became popular, players are increasingly asked to organize the tournament, and the developer responded to those requests.
In season 2018-2019, Epic Games will provide prize money for Fortnite $100 million. This is an extremely huge amount. For comparison, in the entire history of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve has spent on tournaments only $53.3 million, and the competition for Dota 2 — $141 million (but without taking into account The International 2018).
“We intend to strongly support the eSports component of the game, but we have a unique approach: we want to cover as many players and make the tournament brought its participants and viewers only happiness,” writes on the official Epic Games website.
In the near future the company promises to share the details of the structure of eSports, as well as talk about the platforms on which they will be held.
Fortnite Battle Royale is available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and iOS, and in future it will be on Android.
