Fortnite has unveiled its plans for official competitions in 2020 — including FNCS, Cash Cups and World Cup. Epic Games is coming with information for all these tournaments and, despite the circumstances, it's not all bad news.

Fortnite: Epic Games reveals its 2020 Competitive Roadmap

Major esports events are suffering the impact of the COVID-19 health crisis. Fortnite's competitive scene isn't spared. Despite the unfavourable global context, Epic Games insists that the online competitions — of which it has become an example — must continue at all costs.

Today, the publisher revealed to the general public its competitive roadmap for the year 2020. And guess what? It's anything but disappointing.

World Cup

It was the big question mark in this middle of the year. Will there be a second Fortnite World Cup? Epic Games had to face the fact that organizing such an event would be too delicate in this uncertain context.

No Fortnite World Cup for 2020

We now know what will happen to Fortnite's most anticipated competition. 2020 World Cup won't take place due to the global coronavirus crisis.

On the other hand, the publisher has shown its confidence in the organization of the 2021 edition — without saying too much.

FNCS

Don't worry, the Fortnite Champion Series will be running every season until the end of the year. Epic Games will vary the formats to keep these tournaments alive.

Players around the globe will have the opportunity to prove they're the best. We will iterate on formats to improve player experiences.

Cash Cups

Very regular competitions will also be part of 2020. Epic Games has confirmed that they will be maintained in two-steps with a qualify top group of players into a final lobby.

3rd Party Events

We continue to work with 3rd parties to provide more experiences for players.

This sharing of the 2020 Competitive Roadmap was immediately welcomed by a large number of professional players — despite the cancellation of the next World Cup. It should be noted that this is the first time in almost a year that Epic Games has shown such transparency towards its competitive community. The publisher — known for its silence — happens to be listening to its professional players very recently.
