Fortnite is now a world-renowned brand that has made it one of the most promising titles of esports, something Epic has proven over the past few weeks with the Fortnite Fall Skirmish, which Dennis “Cloak” Lepore and Turner “Tfue” Tenney ended up winning the $400,000 grand prize at. It is expected that more attention will be paid to the competitive area of the game during the coming 2019, with more official events and greater rewards than ever before.
