Activision Blizzard CRO Brandon Snow has responded to the neverending rumors of Fortnite-like live events coming to Warzone.
Dexerto says”In the eyes of many, Epic Games’ battle royale phenomenon Fortnite paved the way for the future of gaming. One big factor in that was the live events that brought in new seasons, with players able to drop in on the island and watch the map fall apart.This has also been bolstered by live concerts from the likes of Marshmello and Travis Scott, making Fortnite as much a social and entertainment platform as it is a video game. For a long time, players have been wanting to see the same from Warzone, but not to much avail. Now, we’ve got a little more clarity on the situation.”
In an interview with Inverse, Activision Blizzard’s Chief Revenue Officer Brandon Snow was asked about the possibility of live events hitting Verdansk.
