Epic Breaks Down the ‘Fortnite’ World Cup $100 Million Prize Pool

Marion JacobsFeb 25, 2019

The $30 million total for the Fortnite World Cup smashes the record for the largest prize pool for a single esports event, which is now held by Dota 2's The International 2018 at $25,532,177.

The publisher has revealed its plans for the 2019 competitive season, outlining a series of weekly events and formally announcing the Fortnite World Cup.

Epic Games announced Friday the Fortnite World Cup Finals will take place in New York City July 26-28. He and Epic Games broke the concurrent player record by millions.

The victims were said to have consumed unregulated moonshine, known locally as "country-made liquor". To reduce the cost of regulated alcohol, politicians would have to cut the taxes charged on it.

Last year, between May and the Los Angeles E3, Epic Games dropped two bombs: the announcement of the Fortnite World Cup and the investment of one hundred million dollars for the 2018-2019 competitive season. This is where the competition will really start to heat up with a whopping $30 million prize pool. There will be ten weekly online qualifiers open to every player that will run from April 13 to June 16. Fortnite has been quite rewarding these days, and many people think it's because of the growing of the Battle Royale genre. "Each one of those players will be guaranteed at least $50,000 and the Fortnite World Cup Solo Champion will walk away with $3 million". These tournaments will feature different modes and formats to allow other players to compete and potentially win the massive cash prize.

Information about this tournament began to emerge midway through previous year, starting with Epic unveiling its initial ideas for a Fortnite World Cup. The developer will also "provide tournament tools and prizing to select partners" to improve the presence of Fortnite esports in further countries and regions.
