Lachlan bored with Fortnite

In a tweet, Lachlan displayed his boredom in creating Fortnite videos. After a slow pace in the storyline of this season, the game hasn’t had a major event of large scale that could bring the excitement of fans back, which also includes Lachlan. He also believes that after 4 years of creating content on the game, he might be burned out of doing challenges and grinding videos every week.

Although it might look like the end, he wants to find that long-lost passion for creating content from the game that he hasn’t had in a long while. His departure from the community will be a major disappointment for his and the game’s fans. It will be a major blow to the game for a pioneer like him to leave like that.

As of now, there isn’t a clear decision from Lachlan regarding his future with Fortnite. But, he has decreased the frequency of his videos to almost weekly after uploading daily videos on his channel. Fans, however, continue to hope that he will continue to upload more gameplay and challenge videos and hope that the next season might bring about those changes to him.
