Fortnite is heading to PS5 and Xbox One, Epic confirms


Today, Epic Games confirmed that the massively popular Fortnite will be available at launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

The game coming to next-gen consoles will be “the same Fortnite you know and love” while taking advantage of new hardware. According to Epic Games:

While we can’t share specifics at the moment, more powerful hardware will allow us to improve performance and visuals. At launch, the version of Fortnite we release on next-gen consoles will be built with Unreal Engine 4.

The company says that it will migrate the game to Unreal Engine 5 in 2021. Also, they have confirmed that they will support cross-play with the new platforms while maintaining support for the old platforms. And don’t worry. You should be able to carry over your progress.
