How to play Fortnite on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
Posted November 02, 2018 05:59:46 The new version of the massively multiplayer online shooter that is also called Fortnites has been delayed from its initial September launch date to November 3.
A representative for the game confirmed to GamesIndustry International that the delay is due to a “technical issue”.
The game has also been postponed to December 11.
It is expected to launch on PlayStation4 and XboxOne.
Fortnits first official title, the critically acclaimed, co-op game of its kind, was released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2017.
It has since been made available for other platforms.
The title was developed by Team Fortress developer Valve, with support from Mojang, the Mojang-owned studio behind Minecraft, and published by Electronic Arts.
In a tweet on Thursday, the publisher said: We’re sorry to announce that Fortnit’s release date has been pushed back until the 24th November, the 3rd week of December, for PS4 and PC players.
The update will not affect other platforms, so if you own a console and want to play the game you should be fine.
“We’re taking this opportunity to offer you a special Fortniting discount to celebrate the launch of the Fortnition Store.
It’s going to be great to see you all there,” the tweet added.
The Fortnitors release date was previously planned for October.
It was later postponed in response to a technical issue that caused the servers to shut down for two hours on Wednesday.
“It’s been a tough month, but we’re incredibly grateful for all of the support you’ve given us,” said Jason Rubin, cofounder and CEO of Valve, in a statement.
“As the team works to ensure Fortnitions release, we’ll continue to update our community about the status of the game, and let you know about any updates to come.”
Fortnities first official game was released on June 10, 2018, for PlayStation4, Xbox One, and PC.
It went on to be sold in more than 120 countries.
“This is a big one, so you may want to make sure you read up on the news, if you haven’t already,” Mojang’s co-founder Markus Persson said in a video.
“If you’ve been following Fortniti, you know that the game has been a long time coming, and we’re really excited to be launching it to everyone who has been waiting.”
It is currently the most popular multiplayer online game on the market.
Mojang has sold more than 1.2 million copies of the title, according to its developer, Mojang.
It also recently announced plans to sell the title for a minimum of $30,000 on the Steam platform.
