Epic has stated that they will release Fortnite for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at launch

One of the worlds most popular battle royale game will also be among one of the first games to get Epic’s new Unreal Engine 5. The game is currently built with Unreal Engine 4 but will be migrated to UE5 in mid-2021. Epic also stated its intention to share Fortnite’s online suite with all developers via a multiplatform SDK. This means that they would have access to services such as friends, matchmaking, lobbies, achievements, leaderboards, accounts and so on.

If you haven't already seen the demo for UE5 we highly recommend you check it out, which can be done by viewing the article here. Epic said that one of its goals with UE5 was to “achieve photorealism on par with movie CG and real life, and put it within practical reach of development teams of all sizes through highly productive tools and content libraries.”

Fortnite has over 350 million registered players and that in April, players spent over 3.2 billion hours in the game.
