Epic has already announced that the next concert will go live on September 26, and the party will continue in October as well.

This initiative by Fortnite is special with regard to the current circumstances in the world. With the pandemic still in the picture, the possibility of live music concerts and direct interactions with popular music artists has faded away. Epic Games hopes that these events will help to bring friends together and lighten up their moods.

Fortnite’s recent disputes with Apple have hurt the game. However, Epic Games plans on restoring its popularity and faith among the users through such additions and events in the game.
