Fortnite: Battle Royale will be a launch title for PlayStation 5

At the PlayStation 5 Showcase there were not only announcements of new titles, as several companies are preparing intergenerational releases and many others will update their games already available for the new generation.

Such is the case with Epic Games, which is preparing to bring Fortnite to the next consoles. We have known for a long time that the Battle Royale would make the leap to new systems, but today something was confirmed that will delight its fans who plan to acquire the Sony console.

Fortnite made a brief appearance in today’s presentation, as it was confirmed to be one of the launch titles for PlayStation 5. Players will keep all their progress and items thanks to the account system.

Epic revealed a preview of the game running on PlayStation 5. The company specified that what was shown still runs on Unreal Engine 4, as the Battle Royale will change engines in the coming months.
