Fortnite World Cup 2020 is officially cancelled. Here’s everything we know so far.
That’s right, Epic Games’ Fortnite World Cup is yet another cancellation on the list due to coronavirus.
Let’s go over everything we know about Fortnite World Cup 2020, and the future of the Fortnite World Cup events.
Fortnite World Cup 2020 is cancelled
While most esports events are being held digitally as an alternative during quarantine, Epic Games have decided to hold off on Fortnite World Cup 2020 entirely. The company states the reason for a full cancellation is issues with cross-regional online competition.
What this means for the FWC
Fortnite World Cup 2020 is officially cancelled, but that doesn’t mean future events will have to follow suit. Coronavirus has changed everything up for esports, but we don’t know how long this change will last.

Should quarantine be out of the way in 2021, we expect an in-person Fortnite World Cup 2021. But if stay at home orders are still in effect, we expect Epic Games to eventually clear up issues with holding a digital Fortnite World Cup.
The future of competitive Fortnite
Along with announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Fortnite World Cup, Epic Games also laid out the immediate future for competitive Fortnite.
As of these announcements, Fortnite will have no in-person events in 2020, and all other events scheduled for this year will take place digitally. The FNCS is officially returning as well, and Epic Games may ramp up cash cup games.
Stay tuned for updates as they come.
