There have been a lot of rumors lately about popular mainstream products coming to an ultimately death this year. Internet phenomenon called Tic Toc has been rumored to b coming to an end along with Minecraft and Roblox, and now there are some rumors that have some people concerned that Epic Games will be shutting down Fortnite in 2020 as well.
The popularity of the game named Fortnite is said to be steadily decreasing, but that hardly matters when the little made a historic $1.8 billion last year. With the developer of this game called Epic Games having made more money through the Fortnite Battle Royale title than any other video game for a second straight year, the rumblings about it being shut down in this year come across as a nonsensical prank designed to cause mass hysteria amongst the gullible.
When is Fortnite shutting down in this year? Fortnite owned by Epic Games, is said to be shutting down in June 2020. The rumors about it are not the first to be spread about the popular Fortnite Battle Royale title being deleted. Deleted tweets from the fake accounts of Epic Games in the past have previously said that Fortnite would be shutting down in 2018 thanks to the lawsuits as well as because development is too demanding.
Aside from the deleted tweets from the fake accounts of Epic Games, there were also concerns back in October 2019 that the game had died thanks to its black hole event that eventually culminated with the birth of Fortnite Chapter 2.
Is Fortnite shutting down in 2020? Fortnite is not shutting down in 2020 (be it June or later). Everything happens thanks to the fact that it continues to make more money than any other video game due to its format and collaborations with movies such as Star Wars the Rise of Skywalker.
All the rumors about Fortnite coming to an end this year and in June stem from prank websites such as React2424 and Channel45News. The rumor from React2424 bizarrely says that the game is finishing thanks to there being too many players and because Chapter 2 is a bug that was not supposed to arise from the black hole. The rumor is ridiculous and obviously written in jest, so feel free to take comfort in knowing that Fortnite is not shutting down in 2020.
As stated before, the rumors about Fortnite being shut down were usually from either the fake accounts or the prank websites. When you see a rumor, it is better for you to not believe it easily. When you see or hear it, please look for the confirmation from the official account of Epic Games or the official website of it. Shutting down one of the internet phenomenon like Fortnite is such a huge thing so it is nearly impossible if Epic Games does not publish the news by itself. Once again, please check out the official account or website to confirm something.
