Fortnite World Cup 2020 : dates and info

The Fortnite World Cup 2020 will ultimately not take place. Following concerns related to the Coronavirus crisis, Epic Games has decided not to organize any physical event. We must therefore wait until 2021 to perhaps see the World Cup return to the game.

We don't know when a return to large, global, in-person events will be practical, but we're hopeful to be able to put on some form of Fortnite World Cup in 2021. In the meantime we have more info about online events with FNCS, Cash Cups, 3rd Party Events and Broadcasts.

Before any announcement concerning cash prize tournaments, Epic Games wants above all to ensure the reliability of their servers. The announcements concerning the World Cup, as well as its dates, have therefore been postponed, and we will have to wait a little longer. We will keep you informed of any new changes as soon as a new communication is made public.

For Chapter 2 – Season 2, we're working to address performance issues impacting both clients and servers. Our goal is to improve performance before kicking off any cash prized competition. We'll keep you posted with schedule updates as soon as possible.

Fortnite World Cup 2020 : dates and info

It should be noted that no official announcement has been made at this time, so these are only guesses here.


Dates to remember for the Fortnite World Cup 2020

Since nothing is announced at the moment, we can only assume the different dates for the Fortnite World Cup. However, if the dates remain similar to last year, then we can expect an announcement soon. With the first information regarding the World Cup having arrived at the end of February 2019, we can expect that to be the case this year too. Thus, the different formats, dates of qualifications and place of competition of the finals should be revealed between February 24 and March 15.

The different formats of the competition

Regarding the different formats of the competition, we can expect to see those present in the 2019 edition again. Thus, the Battle Royale mode would see a duet competition et solo, While creative mode would see 8 teams of 4 players. However, we can expect see Trio mode land, the latter not being sufficiently implemented in 2019 to be played. Players would therefore have one more chance of qualifying for the final stages. Un tournoi Pro-AM should also take place, bringing together the most influential players.

The qualifying phases should once again last 10 weeks, and will decide between the players over these micro competitions. They should also take place over 3 hour sessions, with a total of 10 playable games. At the end of the latter, the accumulated points will make it possible to establish a top, where the various players will qualify.


Format Only

The distribution of points should not change from last year.

Top 1 - +106e – 15e – +5
2e – 5e – +716e – 25e – +3

Each elimination is worth 1 point


Format Duo

The distribution of points should not change from last year.

Top 1 - +106e – 15e – +5
2e – 5e – +716e – 25e – +3

Each elimination is worth 1 point


Format Trio

The distribution of points should not change from that of other formats.

Top 1 - +106e – 15e – +5
2e – 5e – +716e – 25e – +3

Each elimination is worth 1 point

The competition is played on a map created for the occasion by a player who will also be team captain in the final. The 3 best players on the map are thus qualified.

Format Pro AM

Qualification is by invitation. 50 players designated by Epic Games will form a duo with an artist or a celebrity invited by the company.

Cashprize and distribution of World Cup prizes

Since the Fortnite World Cup 2020 has yet to be announced, we don't know how many millions of dollars Epic Games will put into this competition. We can, however, expect a sum similar or higher than that of the 2019 edition, with prizes for the qualifying and final stages.

This article will be updated as soon as the various announcements regarding the Fortnite World Cup 2020 are made.
