Friday Fortnite To Return Soon, Keemstar Confirms

Friday Fortnite is making a triumphant comeback.

Old school Fortnite Battle Royale fans might remember the humble early days of the competitive scene. Online competitions were quite different before the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS), Fortnite World Cup, and even seasonal Skirmish tournaments.

Custom lobbies and LAN events didn’t exist back in the day, which meant tournaments required some creativity. Most were relegated to bracketed “kill races,” where two duos would load into a squads match to earn the most eliminations. In that regard, Fortnite Friday became the gold standard.

Today, Fortnite Friday tournament host and online personality Daniel “Keemstar” Keem announced that the classic tournament would return sometime soon.

Descriptive details are few and far between regarding the return of a once-beloved Fortnite tournament format. However, Keemstar did post a tweet today, stating, “Fortnite Friday is back!” He followed up with a video, saying his decision comes from a desire to “get back to the roots” and create more gaming content.

As a result, we can expect to see professional players and content creators involve themselves in Friday Fortnite’s revival. The same tournament that helped elevate names such as Turner “Tfue” Tenney, Dennis “Cloakzy” Lepore, Aydan “Aydan” Conrad and many more returns at a time where public matches are increasingly challenging to win.

Keemstar’s last attempt to host Friday Fortnite occurred back in 2019. He discontinued the event due to Epic Games unleashing seasonal FNCS competitions. It’s been nearly two years, and the potential duo combinations are intriguing.

Several professional players, including former FNCS Champions Mero, MackWood, Saf and aqua, positively responded to the announcement. It’ll be interesting to see the ratio of professional players to content creators in the new era of Fortnite Friday. Ultimately, we’ll have to wait for more information from Keemstar and whichever tournament organizer he chooses to run the event.
