Fortnite PlayStation Cup 2021 Details and Everything We Know

Epic Games just released a statement pertaining to the Fortnite PlayStation 2021 cup. And as the name suggests, this tournament will be limited to players on PS4 and PS5 platforms only.

This is probably one of the rare moments when a Fortnite tournament is being held exclusively for the loopers on PlayStation.

This tournament will be held twice in this year. The first tournament goes live on October 2nd, while the second tournament is scheduled for November 11th.

It doesn't look like Epic Games will change the dates of the tournament anytime soon, but they just might reschedule the tournament due to any major disaster.

Interestingly enough, the Fortnite PlayStation Cup 2021 is going to be a Solos tournament, and it will be conducted in two rounds.
