Fortnite Moves Past Early Access Stage After 3 Years

In the current situation of how games are so dominant in the entertainment industry, bringing in millions of revenue for game developers all around the world; gaming has become a proper large-scale business for many. When talking about gaming though, there’s one particular name that almost everyone has heard about once in their lives, and of course we’re talking about Fortnite. The title by Epic Games has taken the world by storm in the past couple of years, breaking all records that exist in the gaming department. It’s been a little over 3 years since the game has launched, and finally it’s come out of its early access phase.

In a post made on their official website, Epic Games revealed the news for all fans and players alike:

"Fortnite has always been in a constant state of evolution since we first began development, and so much has changed over the years as we've played and developed the game with you," the article says. "As we near the three-year anniversary of Fortnite and Save the World's release we wanted to share an update on our development plans."

"Today we're bringing Save the World out of Early Access and have decided that it will remain a premium experience rather than going free-to-play. Development of new content will slow down after this official release, but the adventure doesn't end here for Save the World."  

In the past, it was a chance that Epic Games was going to make Save The World, a PVE mode inside Fortnite, free at first - but with this latest post on their platform, it’s made clear that no such step will be taken by the company. We don’t know whether this decision was made due to the situation created by the COVID-19 pandemic that we’re in, and that possibly slowing down sales made inside of Fortnite. However, this is the final verdict on where Fortnite will be headed, and whether or not players agree with this update, it will remain as it is.
