Epic Games has announced the 2019 Fortnite World Cup featuring the massive previously revealed $100 million prize pool. The money will be used to support community organized events, online events, and major organized competition globally aimed at different levels of competition.
Primarily focused on solos and duos, the qualifications for the Fortnite World Cup will be based on merit. Unlike the Overwatch League, Epic has stated they won’t be selling teams or franchises, and won’t allow third-party leagues to do so either. The Fortnite World Cup Qualifiers begin in Fall 2018 (Q4 2018 in Australia/NZ), and culminate in the first Fortnite World Cup in late 2019.
Nothing else was revealed during the E3 2018 Pro-Am event but Epic has announced that more information such as rules, player code of conduct and platforms will be detailed later.
