Fortnite is one of the most played games in the world and with constant successful updates, the fame doesn’t seem to be fading any time soon. But ever so often, a rumor resurfaces causing players to wonder “Is Fortnite shutting down in 2022 or 2023?” Was there a tweet from the official sources that informed us of this massively popular game shutting down this year? Here’s all you need to know about it.
Is Fortnite Shutting Down in 2022 or 2023?
Fortnite is 100% not shutting down in 2022 or 2023. Many are looking up the “Fortnite shutting down tweet” where supposedly, the official Twitter account has mentioned that Fortnite will be shutting down on a particular date. Note that this tweet is fake. Unless you see a Tweet actually available on @FortniteGame‘s Twitter account, don’t believe anything else because it can be easily photoshopped.
When is Fortnite Ending?
As per Fortnite’s player count and revenue statistics data, Fortnite’s revenue was $5.1 billion in 2020. In the same year, the monthly active players hit 80.4 million. Post that, the popularity has only grown as they keep breaking their own previous records. With the number of Youtubers and Twitch streamers playing this game and the fact that it’s free-to-play, it’s highly doubtful that the game is anything close to dying.
According to the tweet screenshot that has been going around, Fortnite has tweeted that they will be shutting down due to the ‘big demand that they can’t keep up with.’ Fortnite is a game by Epic Games and its net worth was $4.5 billion in July 2018. It was expected to pass $8.5 billion by the end of 2018. Due to this, there will certainly be no issues from Epic’s side related to handling such a huge number of players.
So, Fortnite is not shutting down in 2022. If it were to happen, it will surely send shockwaves through the gaming industry and you will know about it from official sources and media.
