Fortnite Championship Series begins with Fortnite Season 10

Fortnite's esports efforts are only set to grow, with the reveal that the Fortnite Championship Series will launch with the game's upcoming Season 10.


It's been a fun-filled weekend in New York as Epic Games hit the Big Apple for the Fortnite World Cup. While the top Fortnite players in the world competed for prize pools most esports competitors could only dream of, Epic already has its sights set for the future. What's next is apparently a much bigger competitive circuit in the form of the Fortnite Championship Series.

"Once Season 9 wraps up and we move into our next season, we will be debuting the Fortnite Championship Series," caster Sundown told the Fortnite World Cup audience. "This will give players a chance to compete against the best of the best, where every single result matters, with a leaderboard to track results over the course of the season. Follow your favorite players on their quest to become the first season champions, with millions of dollars at stake."

Details on the Fortnite Championship Series are light at the moment, but look for more information on this to come in the days ahead. One thing to note is that Sundown did make mention of Epic's focus on Fortnite's competitive element and adds that more will be coming soon.

In the meantime, the Fortnite World Cup continues over in New York, with the Solo finals set to conclude today. As of this story's post, Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf leads the pack with one Victory Royale and 11 eliminations. Shacknews intern Donavan Erskine is live at the event and is endeavoring to check in with the latest news. He was on-hand to check out the Celebrity Pro-Am and has a good seat for the rest of today's action. On Saturday, Emil "Nyhrox" Bergquist and David "Aqua" Wang" took the Duos finals to take home $1.5 million.

The Fortnite Championship Series is set to begin with Season 10. No word just yet on when that's coming, but be sure to follow Shacknews and the Fortnite website for more information.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
