Earlier this month, we posted our Competitive Payments blog to give you better visibility into our payment process for Fortnite competitive play. We’ve been working hard on a scalable payments solution to handle cash prize payments for Fortnite tournaments, both past and present. While we’ve made significant progress towards this solution, an unforeseen issue with one of our payment vendors has caused a delay in rolling out the final implementation. This means that payments for many potential Fortnite World Cup Online Open winners may be delayed until later this summer. In the meantime, we will continue to process our payment backlog and issue payments as quickly and efficiently as possible. For the latest on payment progress updates, be sure to continue to check our competitive payments blog.
