Epic Games Teases Massive Fortnite Season 6 Tournament

Epic Games Teases Massive Fortnite Season 6 Tournament

As the sun sets on another season of Fortnite, we're already looking ahead at the inevitable Chapter 2 Season 6. With just a matter of days until the Zero Point arc is expected to wrap up whatever dimension-hopping madness it's planning, Season 6 is just a whisper away. We're expecting all the usual drop of the Battle Pass, crossover skins from pop culture, and an original storyline to propel Agent Jonesy forward. Now, Epic Games has teased a massive tournament for players to sink their teeth into.

We love a good Fortnite tournament, but with accusations Epic has put them on the backburner and scaled back its prize funds in 2021, we've got good news for you competitive players. On a weekly basis, we're given various limited-time events and modes to try and bag prizes. Even though we've seen TheGrefg's "The Floor Is Lava" event and "The Flash Cup" where you could grab reclusive skins ahead of your rivals, gamers are anxious to get proper tournament play up and running.

 

Is a Fortnite Season 6 tournament on the way?

Posting on Twitter, dataminer VastBlast claims the Fortnite LiveBroadcasting server has been updated ahead of the game's v16.00 patch that will launch Season 6. Taking it with a pinch of salt, VastBlast says it could've been done because Epic wants to broadcast a giant tournament in Season 6. Looking closer at what's going on, VastBlast speculates that Epic wouldn't update the server unless there was something big to broadcast. 

The last time the server was updated was back in January 2020, which was in honour of Anaheim's DreamHack event. It's interesting to note this was the last big tournament before the world was thrown into chaos by the coronavirus pandemic. Although the competitive scene has chugged along remotely for the past year, there's a sense that things are finally returning to some sense of normality. If this is the case, Epic might be rolling out the red carpet and welcoming us back with a tournament for the ages. 

 

Will Fortnite Season 6 see the return of tournaments?

Of course, it's all speculation for now. Until Epic itself confirms a tournament is on the way, we should tread carefully. Ultimately, the devs could simply be updating the LiveBroadcasting server for the inevitable time we can return to tournaments. Just because Season 6 includes that update doesn't mean it's a certainty. Added to this, the esports world is taking it slowly in terms of returning to normality.

Fortnite LAN tournament is all well and good, but remote play is likely to be the order of the day for a little longer yet. Even though several big Call of Duty names relocated to Texas so they could be on the same server for the Call of Duty League, it wasn't an official requirement of the CDL. Even in Fortnite, there have been problems with connectivity. Only recently, Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson missed out on FNCS qualification due to connection issues. With no Fortnite World Cup or Trios FNCS in 2021, a supersized Season 6 tournament could help tide us over until next year. Yes, we might be hankering for the roar of the crowd and the ability to gather again to watch the best of the best crank some 90s, but for now, patience is a virtue.
