Fortnite Confirmed For Next-Gen: PS5, Xbox Series X, Unreal Engine 5, cross-progression & more
The battle royale king is heading to the next generation of consoles and a whole new game engine.
We had hoped, but now we can confirm, Fortnite is heading to next-gen!
Not only that, but it will be transferring to the amazing Unreal Engine 5 too.
Fortnite confirmed for next-gen consoles
Epic Games have confirmed that Fortnite will be headed to next-generation consoles at launch.
It won’t be Fortnite 2, but the same Fortnite you know and love and will be ready to take full advantage of the mighty new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Fortnite will be optimized to take advantage of the new hardware and features on next-gen consoles.
Moving to the Unreal Engine 5
At launch, Fortnite on next-gen will continue to use the Unreal Engine 4 that it is currently on.
This change doesn’t mean you will have to start all over again though.
Epic Games plan to support cross-progression across console generations and platforms so that your account, progression, and items carry over.
Cross-play will also bridge the console generations, so you don’t have to worry about finding a new squad if you move to the PS5 and your friends don’t!
