Epic Investing $100,000,000 Into Esports

Epic Investing $100,000,000 Into Esports

Epic Games has announced this week that it plans to inject $100,000,000 (yes, that is 100 million) in the upcoming 2018 - 2019 season in Fortnite.

It hasn't given any details on what its tournaments will look like, but that there is a massive incentive for anyone to get involved into esports.

In the 2018 - 2019 season, Epic Games will provide $100,000,000 to fund prize pools for Fortnite competitions. We’re getting behind competitive play in a big way, but our approach will be different - we plan to be more inclusive, and focused on the joy of playing and watching the game.

Its update mentioned that further details will be given over the next few weeks - time to get that practice in if you want your share...

Fortnite released nearly a year ago in July 2017 on all major platforms.
