“We are delighted to once again work with Epic Games and the Fortnite team on another enormously important and innovative tournament, in the FNCS Grand Royale. We were really proud of being part of creating and running the All-Star Showdown concept and production back in June. This month’s end-of-year event will be further testament to the incredible synergy we’ve built up between the two companies over this time and the combined ambition in how we bring Fortnite to life competitively for the community.”
