Epic Summer Break Means Fortnite Updates Could Stop
The state of Fortnite has rarely dipped, and as of right now, the game is still going as strong as it was two years ago, and maybe even stronger. There's a reason that the battle royale title is such a titan in gaming - its consistent crossovers with pop culture and frequent updates keep the shooter at the top of its field.
Although Fortnite has seen some big changes over the years, very few have been unwelcome. And for a game with so many eyes on it applying pressure, that's a pretty good track record. But, we might see a little dropoff in the near future.
Is Epic Games Stopping Fortnite Updates?
Alexa, play School's Out by Alice Cooper. Epic Games is taking a company-wide break for the summer starting this month. Clearly, Vibin' isn't just the theme of Fortnite's current season - it's a lifestyle.
In the wake of news of gaming companies treating their workers like dirt, this is certainly welcome news. It's especially important for a company like Epic Games, which runs such a tight ship with Fortnite and makes so much money that they set an example for gaming teams across the globe. But, the absence of teams working on the game has got some fans worried.
Will Fortnite Be Untouched For Two Weeks?
Fans are growing worried that this break for the staff at Epic Games means that Fortnite will go without any look-ins for the two-week period that the staff will be off - but that's not likely. Even if we're not expecting anything massive, Epic usually gives the odd tweak.
The team is probably working on the content to come into the game in this period, and though it's not expected that there will be game-wide updates during this time, the cycle of cosmetics coming to the Item Shop and the continuing events of the time will still go ahead.
Plus, leakers for the game have already discovered a lot of new content that's expected to launch in this time frame, so don't you worry - Fortnite isn't about to completely wipe its slate. School might be out for Epic, but Fortnite definitely isn't.
