Is Fortnite coming to Series X and PS5? – Looper

In May 2020, Epic Games announced plans to optimize Fortnite “to take advantage of the new hardware and features on next-gen consoles” at launch. Additionally, it will support cross-generational progression for all platforms both current and new: accounts, items, and progress can move from one platform to another. 

The version of Fortnite that will launch on next-generation consoles will utilize Unreal Engine 4, just like the current version. However, Epic Games said it intends to migrate Fortnite to Unreal Engine 5 in mid-2021. This will allow it to take better advantage of the Series X and PlayStation 5’s improved capabilities.

Epic Games head Tim Sweeney told Digital Foundry‘s Richard Leadbetter that Fortnite would release on next-generation consoles using Unreal Engine 4.25. Unreal Engine 4.25 dropped in May 2020. Some of its features have already been incorporated into Fortnite, and it supports the next-generation consoles already. Players also got a first look at Unreal Engine 5 that same month, which will receive a full release near the end of 2021.
