Best ongoing support and development 2020
Honorable Mention: Fortnite
Guides Editor Chris Jecks: Every year I end up writing about Fortnite’s unique ongoing support from developer Epic Games. The Battle Royale title took the world by storm in 2017, and although its grip on the globe has softened in the last few years, it’s still a bit of a phenomenon spanning different age groups and demographics. Adults still point to the screen as Leo DiCaprio in the meme when it is mentioned in a quiz show children are still floss, and Fortnite continues to blow collective minds with its events at the end of the season.
All this says that Fortnite is still as strong as it has ever been, and with the recent turnaround of the island, it has been given a new life thanks to a new map, adjusted loot pool and more pop culture crossovers than you can shake a stick of.
Every year, I also think it will probably be the last year I write about Fortnite. That the momentum behind this epic juggernaut should subside at some point, but it just keeps going. Epic Games has created a huge platform with ample gameplay options and crossovers, and with Metaverse now pretending to be the next big things in play, the future of Fortnite is destined to be very interesting. So much so, I’ve already started planning what I want to say in this brochure again next year.
