Just remember to keep this a secret.

Epic Games released a post yesterday talking about the future of Fortnite esports going forward and today even more details came out.

The Secret Skirmish will be an event with $500,000 up for grabs over two days and will include top players from each Open Fortnite competition so far.

The event will take place on February 14 and 15 at a yet to be disclosed location.

All of the matches will be broadcasted live on Twitch and Epic Games teases “additional operations” during the event.

You can read the post in its entirety below.


Happy New Year! We’re breaking into 2019 with a special invitational competition called the Secret Skirmish. Don’t tell anyone, but we’ll be awarding $500,000 in prize money for this 2-day event. This invitational will include top players from each Open Fortnite competition held so far.

Rumor has it that the event will be held in a classified, undisclosed testing facility on February 14th and 15th. Each match will be transmitted to our official channels. You can expect the same high-powered matches as TwitchCon and PAX, but also expect us to explore additional… operations… during the two days of competition. Keep a close eye on upcoming announcements as we uncover more details for this event.

This event will covertly be used to better prepare our broadcast team for the upcoming Fortnite World Cup later this year. We’re incredibly excited to share more details soon on how you can participate in the Fortnite World Cup.


More to come.
