HYPEX, a well-known battle royale leaker recently revealed very interesting information regarding the upcoming season, which will radically change the title as we know it. According to the insider, Epic Games will introduce Unreal Engine 5 as the game engine of Fortnite with the arrival of season 8 of chapter 2, thus replacing the Unreal Engine 4.
We do not yet know in detail the changes that the new graphics engine will introduce in the title of Epic, but we can certainly expect more realistic lighting, a higher level of detail and an overall increase in frame rates. The Unreal Engine 5, for those unfamiliar with it, is the new game engine made by Epic Games itself, revealed during May 2020 and which will support PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S.
Fortnite will move to Unreal Engine 5 starting next season, not very big news for some people but I'm sure there are people out there who care.
Also creative map makers should start learning UE5 in their free time and prepare for when Modding comes out, you still have time..
