25 DELETED Fortnite Updates
A New Rumor Claims ‘Fortnite’ Will Be Deleted at the End of February
There have been plenty of other rumors that the popular online game will be shutting down, but just like in this instance, they were just that: rumors. Fortnites current season is set to end in mid-March, and considering the developer Epic Games just released Chapter 3 with new content and changes to the map, its unlikely the game will be deleted anytime in the near future.
Since its release in 2017, the popular free-to-play online battle royale game Fortnite has garnered millions of monthly players, turning it into more than just a video game. The developers have continued to keep the title interesting over the years by releasing new seasons with more content and crossovers, as well as holding virtual concerts and showcases in-game.
Elon Musk Deletes Fortnite (Explained)
To sum things up, Chapter 3 Season 1 was plagued with technical issues. Using Unreal Engine 5, Epic Games added new mechanics in the form of tornadoes, sliding, and web-shooters to Fortnite. But these new features came at the cost of the game’s stability, leading to game-breaking glitches and many, many minor bugs.
During this time, rumors about Elon Musk buying Fortnite began bubbling up again. Apparently, someone (or someones) was trying to revive the meme. And in a span of 24 hours last month, there were more than 50,000 people searching for “is elon musk going to buy fortnite?” People started digging up the exchange from 2018 and that got everyone talking again.
It’s probably because Elon Musk has a knack for acquiring businesses and growing them in ways the original owners didn’t know were possible. But it’s more likely that the original from 2018 managed to surface yet again, causing more confusion. This is Elon Musk we’re talking about, he is just as likely to follow through with a seemingly offhand comment.
Everything went back to normal. Elon Musk had no intention of buying Fortnite and deleting it. It’s funny how something as harmless as a joke could cause such an uproar with so many within a community. Take everything you hear with a grain of salt, dear reader, especially when someone “claims” Elon Musk is deleting Fortnite.
The “Elon Musk buying X” isn’t a new development in the long-running saga of Musk and his memes. In this case, the whole Elon Musk Deletes Fortnite thing dates all the way back to 2018 when Fortnite was at the peak of popularity and that’s when Musk jokingly claimed that he had purchased the Battle Royale game and then deleted it. The tweet included an that appears to be an edited screenshot of a MarketWatch article.
