Fortnite Might End Up on Xbox One and Playstation 4

By   /   Jul 12, 2014

In a recent interview, Epic Games has shared a meek possibility of a console port of its upcoming survival sandbox title, Fortnite.

The game was announced back in 2011 at the Spike Video Game Awards as a PC exclusive. So far, we have had little details, whether the game will land on other platforms or not.

Speaking of the game’s PC exclusivity, Fortnite’s Lead Designer Darren Sugg stated that at the time of the game’s announcement, the developers were uncertain where the current-gen consoles would end up and how Microsoft/Sony would conceive free-to-play games.

It was still a little unsure about where the next generation of consoles was going to land with iterative and free-to-play games. PC just allowed us to push patches and push updates quicker and do heavy iteration. At the time we were conceiving of the project that was why.

However, a lot has changed since then and both Microsoft and Sony have adapted to the new market and support free-to-play and indie titles. Agreeing to these facts, Sugg stated:

Things have changed from the console space and have adapted to the new market, which is cool. So because of those adaptations the future for where Fortnite ends up is not set in stone. I think there are lots of possibilities about how you can interact with Fortnite on different platforms.

Now, I wouldn’t say that he confirmed a console port, but it does look like they are considering the possibilities. Announced as a free-to-play title this April, Fortnite releases sometime in 2015 exclusively for PC.

Check out Eurogamer’s Interview in which Sugg talks about Fortnite as one of their most ambitious project and the upcoming beta.
