With Fortnite’s growth finally beginning to slow down (I mean, it has to, there are only so many people on earth) many are left wondering “Is this it? Is it going to die off?”
Well… Yes and no.
Fortnite is always going to bring in good money, and whether you enjoy the game or not, it’s fan-base is crazy committed, so I believe it will always have a large player-base, large enough to carry it for some years yet.
I do, however, believe it has peaked.
With companies left right and centre picking up the game-mode and adding it to their already quite complete experiences, there becomes less and less reason to go to Fortnite.
But this makes sense, because that’s all it is. A game-mode. As a complete experience, it’s gradually becoming a harder sell.
But this is okay. Fortnite will likely continue to grow and add new modes that people probably won’t like as much, and complain that Epic Games are focusing their efforts in the wrong places, but that is simply the nature of the business model they’ve created.
Battle Royale is a fun mode, but for the sake of longevity, they will eventually have to expand things. As for how that will go for them, well, I’m doubtful about it’s success, but fascinated to see what they do.
Personally, I’m excited for the future of Battle Royale. I sincerely hope developers have the sense to ignore the masses on Twitter when they complain about too many of these modes being added to everything, because in the long run, it will be in everything. It will become a staple, just as Team Death-match and Capture the Flag did before it.
Let’s not delay the inevitable and just have fun.
A currently unpopular opinion of mine; Battle royale in Halo Infinite please.
