Part of Fortnite’s huge popularity is due to its strong esports scene, which has handed out millions of dollars in prize money. This has allowed several players to launch a career in the industry and has earned Epic Games recognition from the community.
However, things are changing little by little and professional gamers are not very happy with the plans that the company has for the future of the game’s esports. In fact, there are those who believe that the competitive battle royale scene is at risk for good reason.
Benjy ‘benjyfishy’ David Fish criticized Epic Games recently for the plans it has for the game’s esports throughout 2021. His main complaint is the prize pool that the studio will offer, which is one of the lowest in the history.
