Is Fortnite OG coming back?
Fortnite is one of the most popular games around, but the recent OG season exceeded everyone's wildest expectations, breaking huge player count records. It begs the question, will Fortnite OG ever come back, or was it a one-off?
The OG season was a shorter season than usual, lasting for just one month. Each week, fan-favourite locations returned to the map and classic weapons from the game's original chapter were unvaulted.
The challenges were specifically tailored to the map and the Battle Pass included re-imaginings of skins from Fortnite’s past. In short, the season was a huge success and many will be wondering if it will return.
Will Fortnite OG return?
In short, the answer is yes. The official Fortnite X account posted on December 2, 2023, that it will be returning… and not much else. The post, as can be seen above, is nothing short of cryptic but plenty of people are sounding off in the replies with theories about when it will return.
Some think it will return every year to celebrate the game's anniversary, while others are suggesting it may be a good way to end each Chapter before beginning a new landmark event. For now, these are just theories, but the tweet does mention a 2024 roadmap, so hopefully we don’t have to wait too long.
I look forward to the OG map returning but worry it can only be carried so far by nostalgia. Maybe next time, different interpretations of what we have seen before can keep it fresh whilst still reminiscing the past.
