Fortnite e-sports: the World Cup and beyond


Fortnite is the most popular game in the world, but it is also slowly becoming an important spectator sport. Developer Epic Games has invested a lot to ensure that this is the case. In 2018, the company pledged $ 100 million to competition Fortnite, which resulted in a series of major tournaments and a 10-week qualifying period for the spectacular Fortnite World Cup, which took place at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City. Along the way, Epic has made steady changes to improve the e-sports landscape, and the competitions have forged a new generation of stars on Twitch and YouTube. It looks like things are only growing.
