Fortnite World Cup 2022
The next Fortnite World Cup is coming soon, but where is it going to be held? Epic hasn’t confirmed where the next event will be, but the next one will likely take place in North Carolina, the site of the last one. The next tournament is expected to take place in November 2022, and the prize pool is set at $1 million. Epic also revealed that it’s working with esports entertainment company BLAST to cover the competition.
The Fortnite World Cup is the first in-person event since the pandemic hit the game’s servers. The $30 million event finally brought Fortnite esports to the public, bringing less famous players to the front of the Fortnite community. These players didn’t have to be part of a well-established esports team to compete, and many of them fought their way up the ranks. Many of these players have since signed lucrative contracts with esports teams after they won tickets for the World Cup.
Fortnite’s latest partnership with FIFA shows a great deal of promise. The developers have already teamed up with a number of sports organizations and athletes to create challenges that reference the next FIFA World Cup. It’s also possible that these teams will be featured in the game, which could increase its overall popularity.
Epic Games announced that they’ll hold an in-person competition in November 2022. It will be the first major competitive Fortnite event since the Fortnite World Cup in 2019. However, the company has yet to announce which cities will be participating. If the pandemic has ceased by then, Epic will likely reschedule the in-person events. The company will likely reveal details of these events in the coming months.
Fortnite is available on all platforms, including mobile, and the next Fortnite World Cup will be held in New York City from July 26 to 28. The prize pool for the tournament is expected to reach $30 million. However, the prize breakdown has not been revealed. There will be 10 weekly qualifiers for the tournament. The winners will go on to compete in the finals.
