Fortnite Season 6: How much money will be up for grabs in what could be the final season of the year?

Epic Games have pledged a boatload of cash for competitive Fortnite

The final competitive event of Season 5 came to a close last night.

The Summer Skirmish event went on for 8 weeks with some of the most recognisable faces in the game making an appearance, as well as a number of players who had performed well in the ‘Summer Showdown’ which was open to the public.

Around 800,000 people watched the tournament live, as the Fortnite pros fought it out for a stake in the $1.5million prize pool.

Earlier in the year, Epic Games announced they would be pledging $100,000,000 in prize money for competitive Fortnite.

Jack ‘Courage’ Dunlop, one of the castors for the event, was quick to remind everyone just how much money was up for grabs in Season 6 of Fortnite.

With only a few weeks left until the start of Season 6 and only three months until the end of 2018…

We should see plenty of big money competitions in the next few months.
