The hugely popular battle royale game, Fortnite, is coming to China, it appears. Developer Epic posted a drawing on Twitter today of the fictional Fortnite character Jonesy's passport, which is stamped for entry into China on April 23. That could be the day the game is due to launch in China.
China is a massive market for games, so there is a lot of potential for Fortnite to succeed in the market. However, as PUBG discovered, cheating and hacking are serious concerns in China (and other parts of the world). So it will be interesting to see how Fortnite fares.
It's unclear if Epic is bringing Fortnite to China by itself or through a partner. If it's through a partner, it seems like Tencent would make sense, given that Chinese giant Tencent owns 40 percent of Epic and already has major connections in China. We also don't know if Fortnite will be available on all platforms (console, PC, and mobile) in China. In China, mobile and PC gaming are traditionally more popular than console. Also unclear is if there are any differences between the Western and Chinese versions of Fortnite.
