With Battle Royale becoming more popular Fornite is set to have some competition.
Fortnite is currently at the top of their game.
With $100million being pumped into the competitive scene and profits having reached $1billion, Epic Games aren’t too afraid of competition right now.
With Season 6 just about to start and sales up, Epic may start to become lax with their updates, not keeping the game fresh and exciting (which is the game’s main appeal).
Fortnite Season 6 will have to be the best season yet in order to keep players interested.
With the new Season starting September 24th, Epic games have placed the season at the perfect time in order to compete with the big titles coming in October.
Both Call of Duty: Black ops 4 and Battlefield V will have Battle Royale modes and it’s possible Red Dead Redemption 2 may do as well.
This is the biggest threat Fortnite has had to face so far.
Both COD and Battlefield have massive audiences, a lot of whom have probably switched to Fortnite whilst waiting for the new games.
The Black Ops 4: Blackout beta recently came to an end and had an overwhelmingly positive response.
Call of Duty had its highest numbers ever on Twitch and YouTube with hundreds and thousands of people flocking to watch the biggest streamers battle it out for the win.
Fortnite Season 6 will have to pull out all the stops in order to keep players engaged.
Late September is the perfect time to start a new season with new locations, weapons, vehicles, skins and hopefully game modes.
Changes will need to be made if Fortnite doesn’t want to lose it’s audience to the might of EA and Activision.
