UNREAL ENGINE 5 IS NECESSARY TO TAKE FORTNITE TO A NEW LEVEL
Fortnite is one of Epic Games’ biggest projects today and will continue to be in the future. In case you don’t remember, the company confirmed that the Battle Royale will be a launch title for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
The important thing is that the game will migrate engine, which will improve its graphics and performance. Currently, the Battle Royale uses Unreal Engine 4, but in mid-2021 it will take advantage of the capabilities of Unreal Engine 5.
Thus, the presence of the engine on new platforms, as well as on Switch and mobiles is very important. It should be noted that the Battle Royale will continue to receive support on all systems, including PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In addition, Sweeney confirmed that Unreal Engine 5 will have support on all platforms where Unreal Engine 4 runs.
“When Fortnite switches to Unreal Engine 5 at the end of next year, we will continue to support all 9 platforms, well, 9 when the 2 new ones are added,” Sweeney revealed during an interview with Eurogamer.
