‘Fortnite’ delays end-of-season event due to George Floyd protests

The ripple effects of the George Floyd protests have reached the world of video games.

“Fortnite,” a free-to-play, shoot-em-up game that is among the most popular in the world, this week announced that it was delaying its end-of-season event in order to give employees and players more time with their families and friends.

“We’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players and communities are experiencing,” the game’s creator, Epic games, said in a blog post. “We believe in equality and justice, diversity and inclusion, and that these fundamentals are above politics.”

“The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families and their communities,” it added.

“Fortnite” — a battle royale that pits players against each other in a “Hunger Games”-style fight to the death — was set to hold its season finale on Thursday, and its season 3 launch on Sunday, June 7. The events have been moved to June 15 and June 17, respectively.

Since its fall 2017 release, Fortnite has drawn hundreds of millions of loyal players — from school-age kids to famous NBA players and other celebrities — as well as billions in profits.
