Epic comes back from in-person Fortnite competition with a November event

Epic Games has declared plans to host an in-person Fortnite competition in November, its first major in-person competitive Fortnite event since the Fortnite World Cup in 2019.

The upcoming event, the FNCS Invitational 2022, will happen on November 12th and 13th at the Raleigh Convention Center in North Carolina. “We will be inviting a selection of top FNCS Duos from around the world who will have the opportunity to compete in a single lobby for a share of a $1,000,000 prize pool,” Epic wrote in a blog post bylined by “The Fortnite Team.”

Notwithstanding, the organization focuses on that player health and safety are “the number one priority for holding any in-person event” and cautions that it might have the reschedule the event if “public health trends change or regional laws or recommendations shift at any point this year.”

It’s muddled assuming that Epic is planning some sort of Fortnite World Cup for 2023. The 2019 edition of that event, the first and only Fortnite World Cup to date, was a three-day extravaganza with a $30 million prize pool. In any case, in April 2020, Epic said there would be World Cup because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and toward the finish of that year, said there would be no 2021 World Cup. Epic has kept on hosting Fortnite competitions online, however the declaration of the FNCS Invitational 2022 appears to show that Epic is hoping to host in-person competitions once again.

Fortnite is approaching the finish of its flow season and has a major in-game event planned for June 4th.
