The Fortnite World Cup has been canceled for 2020 due to coronavirus, and all remaining Fortnite events for the year will be held online, Epic Games announced Thursday.
“For the rest of 2020, all Fortnite competitions will be held online. Due to the limitations of cross-region online competition, there will not be a Fortnite World Cup in 2020,” Epic Games wrote in a tweeter post.
The first-ever Fortnite World Cup took place last July at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York, with 16-year-old Kyle Bugha Giersdorf winning the main event and $3 million in prize money.
In the Fortnite game, you have to survive until the end of a match as a team or alone. Up to 100 gamers can take part in a match at once.
