The Fortnite Team released a dev blog giving all the details they could about the next-gen port.

They confirmed this will not be a new version of Fortnite, but instead optimised for the next-gen hardware and features, promising "improve[d] performance and visuals".

Epic also revealed their plans to support the movement of existing Fortnite accounts, so progression is carried over across all platforms, as well as crossplay being supported across platforms too.  

Don't worry, the Fortnite you know and love isn't going anywhere, as the Fortnite Team stated; 

We plan to continue support for existing platforms in tandem with our support for next-generation consoles.

Get ready to crank 90s in late-2020 on Fortnite Next-Gen!
