Live events like the 2019 Fortnite World Cup did help cement the game’s popularity as an Esport, but like other pro scenes over the last year, LANs have been a thing of the past.

It seems like teams will have to wait even longer to play face-to-face based on an announcement from EPIC to teams and organizations on May 31.

Elite Esports player and manager Connoreo posted a message the team got from EPIC that apparently confirms there will be no in-person LAN events until Q2 (April) of 2022.

“They stated they do not plan to allow in-person events until Q2 2022,” Connoreo wrote. “We do not completely agree with Epic Games… however we do respect Epic Games and their consideration to keeping everyone safe.”


Dexerto says “As EPIC broke the news, various tournaments were canceling and refunding ticket holders, leaving organizations to decide what their next course of action is, now not being able to participate in LANs. This comes on the heels of the wildly successful VCT Masters Reykjavik LAN event for VALORANT. Even though there were no fans in the stands, hundreds of thousands of viewers still tuned in to watch the players compete face-to-face.”

EPIC did leave the door wide open to go back to live events earlier than 2022 based on their message, so players could see a return to live events sooner than later – but it doesn’t look too good at the moment.
