Epic games recently shared some good news with us via Twitter: “The weather may be cooling down, but the battle is heating up. Fall Skirmish starts soon, with $10,000,000 awarded across 6 weeks. Stay tuned for major details dropping later this week!”

Epic Games began their $100 million Fortnite esports tournament season with the Summer Skirmish. They awarded over $8 million in that tournament. The upcoming Fall Skirmish will award $10 million. There may be a $50-60 million season finale in the making.

It is unclear what format will be used, however the likely format will be kills + survival time. This was the format used for the most recent Fortnite esports tournament, the Summer Skirmish. More details will be available shortly.
