Fortnite 2: Will We Ever Get A Sequel?

"Fortnite" isn't just a battle royale — it's also a worldwide phenomenon. The colorful, build-crazy cartoon shooter came out in 2017, rocketing the likes of Ninja, TimTheTatman, and others to the top of the Twitch meta. Now, fans are wondering if Epic will upgrade its flagship franchise with a sequel. "PUBG: Player's Battlegrounds" once considered it, so who'll stop "Fortnite" from taking inspiration (again)?

This also brings into account an industry-wide trend where popular shooters are receiving sequels — not just patches. "Call of Duty Warzone" had a complete rework with its Pacific chapter, which left behind the iconic Verdansk map for a brand new one. Activision Blizzard later raised fans' hopes that a "Call of Duty Warzone 2" was in the works, partially because the team decided it was time to move the game to a more updated engine. 

Here's what we know about a possible sequel to "Fortnite" so far and how likely it is.

Might take longer than a fortnight

It's not very likely that Epic Games will pump out a sequel to "Fortnite" anytime soon. The company has been able to build on "Fortnite" and even upgrade the engine between chapters without a "Fortnite 2" (via IGN). In short, it seems like an update or patch would do whatever a "Fortnite 2" could. 

Some content creators have talked about the pros of developing a sequel. However, Epic Games hasn't explicitly mentioned plans for "Fortnite 2." It has, however, announced a "Pac-Man" crossover and just dropped "Fortnite" Chapter 3 Season 2. At this rate, it seems like the company has found multiple ways to keep the story going and optimize the game as it goes on. We might never get to play "Fortnite 2." 

"Fortnite" is currently available for free on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Android devices. It's still not technically allowed in the App Store because of the blowout from the Epic v. Apple court trial, but fans have found a way to make it work through Xbox Cloud Gaming.
